McNasty x C Store SS14 Collection
Filson Limited Edition Collection
In a celebration of its trademark Cruiser Shirt, originally worn by brave adventurers during the Klondike Gold Rush and patented in 1914, Filson is releasing a limited edition of 222 pieces along with its 1922 Sleeve Vest. The garments come in an exclusive wooden box accompanied by historical documents about their origins.
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.
Add-On ties now live at the store! Presenting a 7cm width and made from soft cotton and oxford fabric, the ties come in two unique versions: a variation on the timeless blackwatch plaid and a beautiful striped pattern. Check them here!
Along with the previous deliveries of pocket squares and the upcoming handmade bowties, Add-on offers a wide range of menswear accessories perfect for all styles and a great alternative for ‘Xmas.
Tommy Hilfiger x George Esquível Limited Edition Loafers
Following their first encounter in 2009 during the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award, Tommy Hilfiger and George Esquível have recently joined forces to create a limited edition footwear collection. Coming from two of America’s most renowned designers, the collection takes Hilfiger’s preppy universe and twists it with Esquível’s signature detailing, delivering a unique piece of American history.
Inspired by a vintage aesthetic, the collection is comprised by a loafer and brogue for both men and women: four distinct models made from locally sourced premium leathers and featuring artisanal details such as antique leather washing, hand-punched perforations and hand-appliqued logos using a hot branding iron. Each pair comes with its own limited edition number, customized dust bag and box.
I was lucky enough to receive a pair of the exclusive two-toned loafer created for the collection. The combination of the navy uppers and contrast burgundy applications works beautifully, with the highlights going to the outstanding handcrafted perforations and detailing, which definitely takes them to another level. The last, a bit rounder than the ones I’m used to, was actually a pleasant surprise as its classic nature is evenly balanced by the overall modern take on the loafer.
