Oscar Jacobson SS15 - The Roaring Twenties

The inspiration for Oscar Jacobson spring and summer collection comes from the golden days of the twenties. The design team has focused on the typical look from the prohibition era with decorative Art Deco details and the luxurious atmosphere that prevailed during the twenties most economic prosperity. Movies and tv-series such as Boardwalk Empire and Lawless has been a important source of inspiration with the double breasted jacket with wide lapels as the seasons key piece.

For the spring summer 2015, Oscar Jacobson still shows that Sweden can deliver exclusive and luxurious suits without compromising on the quality.

Suitsupply Fall Winter 2014 Campaign

Suitsupply kicks off the Fall/Winter 2014 season with a new campaign celebrating individuality. Portraying a sharply dressed individual juxtaposed against backdrops of all kinds of beautiful uniformity, it is a depiction of Suitsupply’s manifesto ‘don’t fit in, but get your own perfect fit’.

The quintessence of the radical, the Fall/Winter 2014 collection breaks away from norms and conventions. “We’ve taken cues from the rebels, loners and outcasts of style & history to create a collection that’s distinctive and nonconformist.” says CEO & founder Fokke de Jong. The result is an experimental narrative of bold and exceptional personality.

Through the lens of classic Italian tailoring, the collection is infused with contemporary trimmings. The emphasis is on luxurious fabrics defined by exquisite craftsmanship – such as cashmere and baby alpaca blends – and a color palette that embraces all variations of blue, contrasted by shades of ochre, oxblood, and forest green. A rich variety of textures and patterns, from subtle checks to bold windowpanes and classic houndstooth, is seamlessly weaved into the collection, while the double-breasted coat adds the final layer of elegance to any look. More than just a sartorial statement, it is a vibrant, signature aesthetic that perfectly reflects the unique flavor and little eccentricities in all of us.

Anonymous asked:

Do you have any idea where I might find that beautiful Isaia jacket? I've been hunting for one for a while now to no avail.

Hey,

It’s real beauty but it’s from an earlier season so it’s hard to find. I would recommend to look at Ebay, Styleforum and Yoox.

Yoox has one without the patch pockets for 1070 EUR in size 48 (it actually has the same fabric composition too). If you’ll wait for their sale you would probably get a 20-30% discount anytime soon. 

Best,

Robin

Belvest SS15 Pitti Uomo 86

Founded 1964 at Piazzola sul Brenta in Italy, the company celebrates a history of more than 45 years of today. All this experience has led to one of the best industry standards for cutting and production and is today producing quality garments under their own label and for other brands. In 1996 Belvest made a collection called “Jacket in the Box”, a collection of jackets that didn’t have any kind of lining and with a light construction. Some says that this was the start of the ongoing trend that we can see today with the unlined and unconstructed jackets. 

Belvest delivers a lot of wardrobe staples and classics but still with a focus on a lightweight construction. Grey, blue, white are well represented in the new collection but also some wisely chosen patterns that stands out just that perfect way that only Italians can do.

Eleventy SS15

Eleventy is a fairly new brand that started 2006 by Marco Baldassari and Paul Zuntini. The brand produces exclusively in Italy and is therefore able to withhold high quality garments with the today well known label “Made in Italy”. Eleventy is represented in 5 flagship stores in Italy as well as over 105 multibrand stores all around the world. 

Some would call Eleventy an more affordable alternative for the exclusive brand Brunello Cucinelli and I think that’s a great reputation for a young brand like Eleventy to have. The brand started strong with polo shirts but quickly expanded and today they’re offering everything from socks to suits.

Eleventy SS15 offers a great selection of garments that will fit perfectly in the classic wardrobe with earthy colors that’s easy to match with other garments. Washed sport coats, classic suits, sneakers and sport influenced garments are only a few of them. 

As always the brand focuses a lot on the details and this includes mother of pearl buttons, suede lining for the collars and functional buttons holes for the jackets. My personal favorites for this collection are the green suede jacket and the beige suede vest.
