We’ve got looks from Stephan Schneider’s Spring 2012 collection which are filled with some clean stylings and fine details to boot. The “Common Ivy” collection is quite different than what we’ve seen from the label in the past but it’s still above the cut of many other menswear designers on the market. Stephan designs all the fabrics himself and splits his time between textiles and designs. Their own Belgian production facilities are utilized to craft the goods, with all the pieces being cut by hand and given plenty of time for the finer details. (via the189)
From Japanese label UNUSED comes a look at their Spring 2012 offerings. The pieces are shown here in a more relaxed fit. The color palette is a bit more subdued than collections from seasons past but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The pieces are still unique and still feature a strong attention to detail, even through the wash of some of the denims. Look for oversized shorts, sleeveless trenches, drop crotch pants and much more. (via houyhnhnm)
From Italian label Camo comes an early look at their Fall 2012 collection. The casino theme of the lookbook is very fitting for the collection as the goods are featured in more muted tones that have this mysterious and private demeanor to them. “Our advice is to bet in yourself and to gamble your right card. Everyone has to be a rounder in own life, taking all the risks to success about family, job and love.” Look for more detail shots in the weeks ahead as Camo will be on display at the (capsule) tradeshow.
This time of the year is always pretty dry in terms of breaking news but we stumbled across this lookbook from the Revolver shop out in San Francisco. It highlights some of the goods in their Fall 2011 collection, shedding light on a solid lineup of brands, most of them being very new to the industry. Included in the mix are Metsa, Yuketen, Baron Wells, Makr, Tellason and a few others. (via the189)
We recently highlighted Comune‘s Spring/Summer 2012 Collection video and now he have looks at the entire collection. Some pieces to note are the chinos which come in a few different finishes as well as the white range of denim jackets. There are a few sweatshirts in the mix as well, both of which feature an asymmetrical cut across the front.
Here’s a preview of what’s to come from Commune de Paris and their S/S 2012 collection. The complete lineup will feature chambray shirts in both short and long sleeve variations, cotton cardigans, knitted vests, polka dotted polos, a few tees as well as canvas and leather bags. The bag shown below is actually a looker, and one we can see ourselves picking up. The colorway is phenomenal and the fine details like the red stripe going across and the CDP initials in gold on the front take things next level. Look for the collection to release late January.
Engineered Garments has released looks at their Spring 2012 lookbook through Nepenthes. There’s a good mix of fabrics and prints, as the label’s gone as far as adding floral shorts and a few other pieces that immediately caught our attention. Lightweight cotton poplin can be seen throughout the collection as well as a few cotton twill pieces.
Italy’s Stone Island turns us to their Spring/Summer 2012 collection which happens to be filled with a ton of lightweight outerwear pieces that are well-designed and highly technical as you’d expect. There’s a good range of colors and the products range from windbreakers and cardigans to hoodies and t-shirts.
White Mountaineering has dropped their Spring/Summer 2012 collection, which is quite comprehensive as it ranges from parkas and lightweight jackets to denims, t-shirts and button downs. What stands out most about this collection is the label’s willingness to experiment with new prints and details, most of which are unique to White Mountaineering’s collection. We spyed a floral camo print atop a parka shell that looks like a must-have as well as a ton of detail on the denims. Enjoy more looks below.
