J.Crew presented a collection with strong nautical and workwear inspiration for S/S 11. A denim pea-coat/ blazer and bold patched chinos were the standout items. Tonal and clean reinforcements in indigo, grey and stone provided a modern and forward thinking move for patch-and-repair looks.
Lina Osterman, the brains behind London-based jeans label, Pudel, presents a great denim range playing with skinhead, punk and grunge references. In your face tie-dyed and punky bleached product sits perfectly with clean, utilitarian rigid work shirts – a confident collection.
Edwin seems to capture a slight look of ‘The Selby’ in this relaxed and easy look book. The models are all friends and family, photographed in their natural habitat, allowing for a relaxed and casual vibe to come through. Workwear was a key theme with the military-inspired worker jacket as one of the highlights.
We head down under for our next look book: Bassike has been going since 2006 and, following great success, are now stocked internationally. This season they’ve got the double denim look nicely tied up with some great stonewash laundries. The dropped crotch pant and the loose skate short are our favorite pieces.
Won Hundred’s S/S 11 collection has a very artistic and conceptual starting point. Inspired by a study of long black silhouettes created by different objects that cast a deformed shadow, the collection plays with proportion and scale. Longer-line shorts are key, and the Swedish brand also plays with clean patch-and-repair work, too, making for a strong range of basics with a twist.
