It took us a while but the 2nd entry of the Beyond Fabric movie series is now up! Shot once again at our hometown of Figueira da Foz, Portugal, the focus is on a polished yet relaxed Summery attire, with Driftwood Collective’s brand new shop as background. Two distinct universes come together through our mutual love of beautiful things and creative concepts, but overall our friendship and brotherhood.

Much has been said about Spring blues, as distinct garments in different shades of this iconic menswear staple continue to drop from all sorts of labels. From the timeless navy to the season’s pale and baby blues, this is an invaluable option to consider for your Summery wardrobe. Inspired by some recent purchases, namely the shirt and chinos, I decided to put together a monochromatic attire to honor it. Pulling off unique a color from head to toe definitely poses a challenge and requires some pattern, texture and hue matching skills. However, if done right, the result is a strikingly polished look few others can outmatch…

I’m celebrating my 28th birthday today and although I didn’t take the day off, I’ll be styling the latest drops from Adam Kimmel SS12 so it’s a gift in its own way…even more so since some of those outstanding pieces are likely to become future purchases: Hawaiian Camo Pants anyone?
Here’s a glimpse of what I’m talking about…
There’s no denying that our mood is strongly influenced by the weather, be it in a positive or negative manner. Usually, when waking up to a sun-shiny day, you brighten up, put a smile on your face and feel an urge to dress accordingly: no wonder color makes an appearance this time of the year…
This look is all about celebrating those days through color and bold pieces. The thing I love the most about it, besides the color scheme and refined, yet relaxed feel, is the fact that it blends several statement items in a balanced, sophisticated outcome. When going for louder items such as this multicolored stripe shirt, I usually advise caution and toning the rest of the outfit down a notch; however, if you’re willing to risk it, adding yet another strong piece to the mix may elevate a look to the next level.
Although the idea of mixing stripes and polka dots may seem daunting at first, the matching tones and differentiated scale of the patterns work perfectly together. To smooth things down, a two button navy unstructured sportscoat with a twist: the peak lapel, adding an Italian vibe. Light, fitted and presenting brilliant details such as the satin applications on the flap pockets, this has definitely become one of my favourites. Rolled up white jeans and suede espadrilles further emphasize the summery, relaxed feel.
