If you’re not familiar with The Bengal Stripe, it’s about time you folks get acquainted. Nico and company have done a tremendous job delivering some amazing content over the past few seasons. They’ve been able to effortlessly infuse their personal sense of style into their daily postings but this editorial puts them in front of a camera instead of behind the computer. The result’s really natural and really shows the boys are taking things to the next level with their creative content. Justin Chung was behind the lens on this one and as usual, the man’s delivering some amazing imagery.
From Japanese-label Marvy Jamoke comes their lookbook for Fall 2011. The cut on the bottoms is more relaxed than pieces offered up by brands coming out of Japan these days but we don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing. The materials are still of the highest quality and extremely wearable. The outerwear looks to have a tremendous fit even when layering. The thick trousers and knit sweaters will be calling our name once the colder months hit.
Wrangler Blue Bell is making a tremendous push this season with their denim offerings manufactured here in the United States, just like the original Blue Bell. The level of quality on these pieces is seldom matched and the look is as American as can be: white denim jackets, durable jeans and work shirts in an array of finishes. The color palette’s really welcoming this season with bright colors and shades of orange and blue making their way into the collection.
Look for these fine garments to be available through select Wrangler Blue Bell stockists worldwide.
Farah recently teamed up with Dazed Digital for the ‘Farah Tribes’ campaign. The shots feature folks that embody Farah’s philosophy of individualism. The British brand launched a competition on their Facebook page about a month ago that looked to obtain a snapshot of ‘modern day tribes’ as from their inception over 90 years ago.
The finalists, as chosen by Farah and Dazed were then invited on a shoot for the new June issue where they interpreted the new collection in their own way combining Farah pieces with their own style and favourite fashion items to create four very different looks.
The Nigel Cabourn for Eddie Bauer collection for Fall 2011 was one of the biggest hits from this January’s Bread & Butter tradeshow in Berlin and with good reason. The product looks flawles. “What we’re looking at is strong, highly tailored and developed outerwear from the Seattle staple brand.” Word’s even getting out that this collection may be available stateside. Fingers crossed, folks. (via Selectism)
