Look: Ready for Summer

01

Words

The sun finally came out in Vancouver on the first official day of summer. It's still not entirely hot out however, so a jacket might be good to keep with you, say in your back pack? The colors here feel nice and summery, casual and easy to mix around together. Comfort is definitely key, so whether you need a little added layering, or the hot weather haven of a madras shirt, whatever the climate, you'll be set.

Words

We don't normally post that much runway imagery, but the Missoni Spring-Summer '12 collection warrants the attention. Styled by our friend, and regular Inventory contributor, Stephen Mann, the show featured lots of simple light layering and considered combinations of pattern and colour. The collection merges elements of sportswear and technical detailing with neat cuts and Missoni's iconic knitwear resulting in something inventive and modern, yet equally wearable. Click on the link below to view the show in its entirety.

The North Face Purple Label Trail Shorts

—01. Brown.
—02. Navy.

Words

There's some great patterned shorts on offer this season, particularly those by Post Overalls, but these might just be the best of the bunch. The duck print is definitely pretty bold and won't be to everyone's taste, but in my mind a pair of shorts is always the perfect place for a pattern like this.

Here's the last few snaps from Florence this summer.

—01. Made in Japan.

This pop-over shirt has a moderately shiny satin fabric which plays into the military inspired garment. The dark brown cat eye buttons enhance the fine sense of detail and texture. The final product evokes strong vintage reference through its classic tones and simple fabric.

Over the weekend Mark McNairy and WP Lavori took the Woolrich Woolen Mills collection to Milan for the brands official presentation. It was one of my favorite collections in Florence, so its nice to see a preview of the pieces in a slightly different light here. With the use of some cotton twills, chambray, mesh and some great prints, the collection is well rounded, offering a unique twist on the Americana classics, while injecting a fresh feel and an opportunity to buy the collection in a few different ways - sadly, not in Canada though.

Mr. Bathing Ape Camo Jacket

—01. Front.
—02. Back.

Words

I'm not sure how this piece passed me by, but its definitely one of my favorites from the Mr. BATHING Ape collection. While the prices for the pieces are not cheap, Present have just gone into their summer sale, so the jacket is slightly more attainable, yet I might still be waiting for another drop.
