Christophe Lemaire Spring-Summer '15

01

Images

01-02. Monochrome palette.

Words

Unsurprisingly, the Spring–Summer '15 shows have brought a lot of colour and pattern to the runway, but Christophe Lemaire has avoided the least bit of either with his latest offering. Instead, the extremely restrained collection provides plenty of interesting detail through silhouette, fabrication, and the casual structure of its jackets; all of which make for a universally cohesive and wearable selection.

The Strike Gold Heavy Loopwheeled Sweatshirt

01

—01. Four-needle flatlock seams.

Words

The vat dyed indigo colouring of this heavyweight sweatshirt means that while it looks pretty incredible now, it will only get better with age as it loses some of that rich blue hue. The tighter weave of the loopwheeled fabric is durable and tough, but sacrifices no softness with a triple-brushed interior. In short, this classic Japanese-made crew neck, with deep cuffs and waistband, couldn’t look any better, especially when paired with well-worn denim.

Comme des Garçons Homme Patchwork Shirt

—01. 100% Cotton.
—02. Made in Japan.

Words

I searched everywhere for this after seeing it peak out from behind a jacket in an editorial a few months ago. It is one of those rare shirts that utilizes traditional patchwork without conjuring visions of Arnold Palmers and croquet games. I suppose that is due to the use of paisley as opposed to something like seersucker, but whatever the reason, it looks very good to me.

Nica Chromexcel Sandal

—01. White Birkenstock EVA sole.

Words

A pair of sturdy sandals are a necessity during the summer, whether they’re Birkenstock, Teva, or this Horween leather option by Nica. Produced in Maine using hand-tacked copper nails in their construction, they are sure to be one of the most well made, not to mention attractive, versions of this usually less than desirable style.

Leslie Williamson: Handcrafted Modern & Modern Originals

—01. Modern Originals.
—02. Handcrafted Modern.

Words

Having trained as a portraitist at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, the primary focus of Leslie Williamson's more recent work has been the world of interiors. Eschewing the glossy format often associated with this subject, she captures people's homes and the work of iconic designers and architects in a far more artistic way. Her first book published by Rizzoli, Handcrafted Modern, has done exceptionally well, and her second from the same publisher, Modern Originals, was released in April of this year.

—01-03. Prada Spring-Summer '15 by Alfredo Piola.

Words

As the world tour of men's fashion weeks continues, there are few resources better than Style.com and T Magazine for quality updates on the latest collections and behind the scenes imagery. I especially like this series from T Magazine which uses beautiful photography to capture a more intimate look at the clothes and the people wearing them.

Bru Na Boinne Aloha Shirt

01

Image

—01. 55% Rayon, 45% Cotton.

Words

It might not be in the same realm as a hand-painted vintage original, but this Aloha shirt by Japanese brand Bru Na Boinne is the best contemporary version I've seen in a long time. The lightweight fabric, the subtle combination of greys and pinks, and the simplicity of the asymmetrical flamingo pattern – with what looks like a stingray and a diver thrown in for good measure – add up to something very special. I was sold as soon as I laid eyes on it.
