We got hints of this a while back but Kris Van Assche has finally unveiled his short film, “A Moment in Time”. It’s directed by Joost Vandebrug and was presented a few days back at the launch of LONDERZEEL number 2 during Paris Fashion Week. The short film represents the easy going feel of Kris Van Assche’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection by telling a story of two old friends that reconnect at a bar after sometime apart.
Some of the finest footwear we’ve seen in quite sometime, Feit’s limited edition “Hand Sewn Reconnaissance” collection for Spring 2012 features a few new models in a range of colorways. The Hand Sewn Superclean Low, High and Stitchown model combine specialized techniques such as hand-made Goodyear construction, with the heel construction of a hand sewn moccasin, and finishing in the shape and feel of a classic court sport sneaker, each style is built to completion by one master craftsman using the finest Italian leathers. Look for these to not only be available for preorder through feitdirect.com but through select retailers worldwide as well.
DQM has teamed up with Seattle’s Crescent Down Works for this amazing remake of their Montagne Parka. The shell is made from Martexin Original Wax cotton and is lined with the Crescent Down Works’ signature streak free nylon. Look for zipper and leather enforced button closure plus additional leather detailing on the drawstring hood. The jacket will be available in two colorways — black/orange and tan/navy — through DQM’s online shop come October 3rd but can be grabbed now at The Vans DQM General Store.
For Fall 2011, Japan’s Beams+ introduces this bandana in an amazing yellow paisley fabric. It’s made in Japan and will work well as a bandana or a pocket square though I personally would toss this in my blazer’s chest pocket in a heart beat.
A move that’s long overdue, The Brothers Corsillo have finally taken their highly successful Hickoree’s online shop and opened their first brick and mortar establishment. Situated in the South Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, NY, the shop is a floor under their office where brothers Sandy and Emil have run both Hickoree’s as well as The Hill-Side over the past few years. The product’s as diverse as it is online with everything from wiffle ball bats and Blue Cow soap to parkas from Owner/Operator and new packs from Epperson Mountaineering. The shop recently collaborated with Fair Ends for two wool caps, both of which are available in-store now. (via Secret Forts)
From S.E.H Kelly comes another fall essential, this time in the form of a biscuit-colored lambswool rollneck jumper with inset slouch pockets on the side-seams. The details are immense but that’s something we’ve come to expect from the British brand. The soft, pliable lambswool is spun in Yorkshire in a light brown or “biscuit” finish that’s seldom seen on the market, making this piece a rare find. We’re really impressed with the construction as the chest and back of the sweater are finished in a warm, dense moss-stitch while the rest of the body and arms feature a lighter plain-stitch.
Copenhagen’s Norse Projects and Manchester-based retailer Oi Polloi have teamed up for this burnt orange military inspired anorak. The detailed shots below highlight the jacket’s waterproof shell and just make us want this jacket more than we already do. Find the jacket at Shelta and Oi Polloi.
A.P.C. takes the classic fishtail parka and adds a removable lining for added versatility while maintaining the piece’s timeless appeal and detailing. There’s a drawstring hood and hem which makes it more adjustable and the Wool/Ramie/Nylon shell makes it proper for any weather.
Here’s a look at a new video from Gant by Michael Bastian. It’s titled “Sunshine Days” and showcases the line’s recent S/S 2012 showing during New York Fashion Week. The collection takes much inspiration from the Brady Bunch Goes to Hawaii with bright colors on well-fitting pieces bolstering the lineup.
We initially got turned to D.S. Dundee a while back when we came across their outstanding footwear offerings but since then, we’ve seen what the East London-based label is capable of crafting. They utilize the highest quality fabrics and yarns right from Britain, in turn creating some really amazing pieces and supporting the community that raised them at the same time. The shots here highlight the upcoming season’s campaign shots which we’re expecting to be promoted through a range of mediums including digital and print.
