Gant Rugger AW14 Collection
Straying (just enough) from its preppy essence, the label’s upcoming collection delivers a refreshing take focused on layering, plays on length and striking details. Denim aprons and quilted shorts worn over sweatpants were just some of the pieces that evoked elements of a japanese inspired aesthetic.

Play It Fair…
If it’s generally accepted that certain colors have more in common with specific seasons, the same can be applied, although to a lesser degree, to patterns. To name but a few, stripes and gingham are usually sported in Summer whereas argyles, for instance, are more wintery. Even if within a fashion forward universe, this traditional approach is being overlooked, the concept still remains to a large extent. It there’s one such pattern that symbolizes Winter in all its frost white glory, it has to be Fair Isle.
Named after the homonym island located in Northern Scotland, it consists of a local traditional knitting technique where up to five distinct colors are combined in rows, creating a uniquely characteristic mosaic pattern. Originally found only in this island, its visual appeal has captured the heart of designers and stylish individuals alike, earning it a place in runways and shops worldwide. Its recent burst in popularity placed it on most Christmas wishlists and allowed designers to create a never before seen variety of items, in an array of fabrics and shades.
Closing up on Gant Rugger
As I mentioned before, there are few websites I love as much as Close Up and Private. Sergey Sviatchenko single-handedly revolutionized menswear imagery by means of his unique take on photography and composition.
