On the list #1 - Visvim x Dover Street Market
Due to a series of soon to be released projects, my ‘Xmas wishlist selection has suffered a slight delay. Nonetheless, it’s better late than never, so throughout the week you can expect a steady flow of personal favourites…and what better way to start than leaving you flat broke right off the bat? The debut of Dover Street Market in New York sees a range of exclusive pieces from Visvim, including several boots, jackets, vests and shirts.

"In the late 1800’s, a Scottish weaver created a series of fabrics in a limited edition for the world’s four most prominent universities: Harvard, Yale, Cambridge and Oxford. As a whole, the series of fabrics was quickly forgotten—only Oxford found a place in the modern closet. Similar to poplin, Oxford is based on a plain weave, though it uses double threads in both weave directions for a more distinct texture"

Levi’s Made & Crafted SS14 Pitti Preview
Although coming across new brands and getting in touch with the latest developments is definitely exciting, the warm, welcoming feeling of reuniting with an old time classic is special in its own way. For me, no matter how many alternatives fill the market, Levi’s will forever remain the ultimate choice for time-tested, long-lasting denim. Its premium Made & Crafted line is a reminder that the iconic label is not only here to stay, but also dealing cards when it comes to delivering refreshing and updated takes on classics.
