Camoshita SS15 Pitti Preview
Yet another outstanding selection from one of my favourite designers and style inspirations. Yasuto Kamoshita keeps on delivering perfectly balanced collections that combine tailored and casual elements with unique sophistication. A representation of his personal style, the collection merges a variety of influences that translate into a brilliant mix of colours, patterns, textures and luxurious fabrics. Apart from the inherent visual appeal, the pieces on display just screamed to be experienced in person: bouclé effects, open weave knits, seersucker suits and blazers, lightweight cottons or brushed jerseys create a distinct universe where even the simplest of garments is on another level.

Mifland AW14 “Weathered Patina” Collection
Journal Standard AW14 Lookbook
J.S. has slowly become one of my favourite Japanese labels out there. The ongoing flow of well constructed, quality menswear staples, is combined with fit, attention to detail and of course, the trademark technical twist Japanese brands are known for.

Buttero SS15 Pitti Preview
By now, Buttero needs no introduction… universally praised as one the best sneaker manufacturers around, the Tuscan-based family brand has elevated its models to new standards. As one of their biggest fans and supporters, I’m constantly showcasing their other footwear alternatives, namely boat shoes, loafers, derbies and the exclusive boots dating back to the brand’s origins.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the SS15 collection places a heavy bet on more casual models, including a variety of sneakers, slip-ons and sandals, without forgetting some more classic alternatives. Making use of some of the best vegetable tanned leather and suede out there, the result is an amazing mix of materials in both subtle and bright shades, along with beautiful craftsmanship as seen in the braided leather versions. New additions include a lightweight construction making use of cork-based soles with vibram layering. Their AW14 collection is now online at the official website.

Feelflows Surfboards x Lightning Bolt Editorial
I’ve mentioned my brother’s project as a shaper quite a few times before…Similarly to myself, he too changed his life course to pursue his passions and hence Feelflows was born.
His unique creative mindset and refined aesthetic have led to exclusive surfboard designs. This one is a personal favourite and a perfect example of how fabrics can transcend the fashion realm into different areas: in a collaboration with Lightning Bolt, he incorporated a fabric inlay from their SS14 collection onto this 6’0”Hullico. The result is nothing short of outstanding…
