Once again, Thom Browne blessed the stage of Paris Fashion Week with a phenomenal collection. The heavy wools and tweeds are delivered in a range of patterns while the models wore the pieces in boxy cuts. The New York-based designer brought out stars, squares, and stripes to really make the offerings standout from seasons past. All-in-all, the suiting, as quirky as the presentation was, stood out the most as we expect the gray and midnight blue color palette to really be a push for Fall 2013.
On Wednesday, Valentino presented their Fall/Winter 2013-14 Collection at Paris Fashion Week, bringing out quite arguably one of the best collections for the season yet. The pieces feature a slimmed design with exceptional detailing such as leather panels on dark blue wool outerwear. Black watch and gray plaids can be had in a few different pieces as well while camouflage is brought out in more subdued tones. The leather outerwear lineup is crisp with smooth shells being fitted with hidden button closures and other minimalistic details. All-in-all, Valentino’s Fall 2013 collection is extremely wearable, with each piece aligning effortlessly with the next to create a fluid lineup.

The pop-up will house The Olch’s entire Spring 2011 collection which ranges from neckties and bowties to suspenders and pocket rounds and now to bags as well. The offerings are tremendous as we actually have checked out the collection up close and have to say it’s everything we’d expect from the New York-based designer and then some.

Although we’ve recently only covered a handful of editorials, this may be one of our favorites. Photographer Jolijn Snijders shows her brilliance in these shots of Adrien Brunier as they capture much more than the clothes on his back. The man’s confidence shines through the shots, leaving us wondering… where’d you get that blazer?
We recently turned you to a sneak peek at Arkitip’s latest collaboration with Incase, featuring Parisian artist André. The MacBook Sleeve + iPhone case combo has officially been outed and we’ve never been the ones to sport any French emblems but that may soon change.
