Japanese outdoor label Snow Peak presents their latest lookbook for spring/summer 2016, effortlessly blending functional outdoor wear with late back home essentials. The lookbook gives us a glimpse into the daily routines of New Yorker and Tokyo citizens, which essentially describes the brands effort to merge their outdoor range with urban streetwear. The collection features utilitarian workwear pieces, waxed fabrics and transitional camo prints. Watch out for Snow Peak’s SS16 collection dropping soon online and at selected retailers.
With warmer days ahead the danish mainstay Norse Projects presents yet another great lookbook filled with understated menswear piece adding their usual sense of pure Scandinavian minimalism. The 2016 Spring/Summer collection consists of military-inspired garments complemented with floral patterned detailing united for a line of durable silhouettes. With a strong focus on clean cuts and functional fabrics, the brand showcases a range of lightweight twills, over-dyed weaves and durable nylon ripstop finished in a muted color palette. Drawing inspiration from the nautical culture up to some Asian influences the line is emphasised with tones of orange, green, and blue as well as earthy muted tones, like green, fungi, clay and birch. Get ready for summer and head over to Norse Projects and shop the collection.
Haven´s buyer team is giving us a glimpse into visvim’s FW16 showroom during their latest trip to Paris for Mens Fashion Week. Highlights included classic visvim mountaineering and western influences with naturally dyed nylon jackets as well as various renditions of traditional Japanese style Doterra’s and Sanjuro’s utilized in traditional western textiles such as Harris Tweed to create an odd, albeit appealing juxtaposition.
You can already catch the summer vibe with Our Legacy´s latest lookbook for their Spring/Summer 16 collection entitled 'Syndrome‘. The Swedish brand plays with different ideas: a fleeting attraction to a certain piece of clothing while traveling. The contrast between casual wear and uniform, how they intersect; and the mix of extreme utilitarian detailing on light ‘soft’ styles that bear a borderline feminine aesthetic.
As a true advocate of his penchant for the Americana and Western-inspired style, Hiroki Nakamura continues to showcase visvim´s high-quality pieces for the upcoming warmer days. The Japanese designer presents a full range of diverse and colorful pieces combining Americana, workwear, and traditional Japanese silhouettes.
Copenhagen`s Norse Projects delivers another clean and minimal range of menswear piece for this upcoming fall/winter season. Stephen Mann styled the looks which were shot by Justin Chung and photographer Luke Norman in the workshop of Scandinavian design house Fritz Hansen, which offers the perfect background to highlight this clean and functional collection. Inspired Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershøi, the pieces feature a muted color palette with rosin green, mustard yellow, navy and grey tones.
