We’re really excited to be able to present to you all some highlight pieces from Tovar, a brand that we came for the first time at this week’s PROJECT Show in Las Vegas. The Los Angeles-based label is launching in Spring 2012 and their product is really exceptional. There’s balanced mix of simplicity, functionality and wearability. The shirting fabrics are really soft and lightweight so they’re perfect for the warmer months while the outerwear pieces are so versatile in both form and color that they have no barrier when it comes to season.
Selectism turns us to this Denham’s Longshore Pea Coat, which the label’s made available in three different fabrics. Apart from the Japanese denim shell you see above, the Pea Coat’s available in black painted canvas and (Fox Brothers & Co) Melton wool as well. “The coat’s overall design draws influence from vintage naval outerwear, yet deviates from the box-fit of archetypal works attire, parading a number of modernist revisions and a streamlined silhouette.” There’s a fresh blend of American heritage and Japan’s desire for detail and functionality.
Clarent Dehlouz of Frenchtrotters and Alexandre Maïsetti of Commune de Paris have gotten together to create a capsule collection for the Fall/Winter 2011 season. Four pieces encompass the collection with two shirts, one cardigan and the 18mars FT bag. The two Parisian labels created product with special care over detail, high quality products, a modern fit and a precise choice of colors.
Today marks the launch of the Ralph Lauren Black Label Denim collection, a new range of premium denim for men. The line goes past just denim jeans as there will be peacoats, shirts and trenches reinvented in the finest fabrics. As for the denim pants, the fits will range from sharp skinny to classic straight legs and are available in moto cross jeans, cargos and beyond. Other notable pieces include jersey knits, leather shirts and jackets in denim-blue, cashmere sweaters and clean-cut denim sport coats. Washes and treatments include waxy coatings, authentic whiskering and abrasions, oven bake processes, nicking and subtle pigment staining, over dyeing and pigment coatings.
The denim collection will retail between $225-$450 for jeans, with t-shirts and shirts from $80-$350 and outerwear from $395-$1295, with availability this week in select Ralph Lauren stores and department stores.
Here we are again, folks. With our ongoing collaboration with PROJECT Tradeshow, we’re reporting live from the Las Vegas floor in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center as part of the Blogger Project Curated by Marcus Troy. If you thought PROJECT NY was epic, you guys are in for a treat. There’s an even larger selection of brands and not to mention the PROJECT exclusives like PROJECT Wooster and PROJECT 10 Curated by Selectism. Stay tuned for some exclusive content over the next few days. PROJECT Vegas runs from August 22-24.
On August 17th, 2011, Nazish Noorani, a 27-year-old mother of two was shot and killed in her hometown of Boonton, NJ while walking with her husband and three-year old son after a dinner in observance of the Holy Month of Ramadan. After days of investigation, law enforcement officials have charged her husband with the killing of this young woman, with the help of an accomplice. To see something so tragic happen at anytime to anyone is disheartening but the several factors playing into this particular event really make me wonder why people do the things they do. But I’ll never lose hope in society or man.
Here we have a look at Soulland’s Spring 2012 lookbook, which features the Danish label’s entire line of offerings which range from outerwear and well-fitting shirts to footwear and eyewear. The woolen motorcycle jacket really stood out to us as did the floral-printed blazers.
