45rpm Fall '11 Lookbook

01

Images

—01 & 02. Looks from the Fall '11 men's collection.

Words

45rpm lookbooks are always very well executed, but this season's is particularly good. Although location usually plays an important role, the Fall '11 edition is shot entirely in the studio, divided into sections by different backdrops - a simple approach, but one that works really well and maintains a strong focus on the people and the clothing. As always, there's lots of smiles and jovial poses, and an array of great looking new pieces. View the lookbook in full by clicking on the link below.

Shaggy Dog for Present

—01. Purple.
—02. Navy.

Words

Present have just received a selection of Shaggy Dog sweaters. These combed Shetland classics have been a staple at J.Press since the late 60s, but it's great to see them in London and in five different colours too. I like a mohair sweater in the winter, but these are an altogether warmer option, and a little less itchy which is always good.

White Mountaineering Nordic Pullover

—01. Green.
—02. Red.

Words

There's no shortage of patterned knitwear around this season, but very little of it offers anything better or more interesting than that produced by traditional manufacturers for decades. This, however, is one of the exceptions. White Mountaineering have been making these sweaters for a few seasons now and not only are they incredibly good quality, but the intricacy of the pattern, particularly in circling the yoke, elevates them far beyond the run of the mill.

Le Labo Santal 26 for Neighbour

—01. Le Labo Santal 26.

Words

Another nice scented candle option, this time made by Le Labo for Neighbour. Poured by hand in New York using soy wax, Santal 26 is an "aristocratic scent that gives off a gentle, smokey, and leathery fragrance."

South 2 West 8 Caramel Jacket

01

Info

—01. Available in four colors.

Words

Fall/Winter collections have been hitting the blogosphere as of late, but this restock of the caramel jacket for spring/summer is a great option for either season. Made with 60% cotton and 40% nylon, the lightweight design and subtle detailing lend well to the shape of the jacket. These won't be around for too much longer so if red isn't your color, choose one from four available color-ways.

The Makers Project: Joya

01

Info

—01. Brooklyn, NY.

Words

Only a couple of weeks ago we were in this space, watching this process take place. However, it was on the hottest day in New York in some 30 years, so hot it was difficult for the candles to set properly even. The atmosphere was great and the setting was really nice. Although we got to discover some of the hidden gems of Joya's operations, its almost a more pleasant visit viewing these great photos from a comfortable desk, a window open with a gentle breezing flowing in.
