Thom Browne AW13 Lookbook
Stepping down from the overwhelming runway shows, the american designer presents a more toned down and, in my opinion, wearable collection, that manages to stay true to his roots and trademark elements such as padded shoulders, plaid patterns and high cropped pants.
Salvatore Piccolo SS14 Pitti Preview
Embodying its Neapolitan heritage, Salvatore Piccolo brings us a collection focused on tailored garments in beautiful shades and patterns, perfectly complemented by an array of sartorial accessories. The traditional navy blazer gives place to a vast color palette including orange, mauve and brown, while incorporating paisley and plaids into the mix. Look no further if you’re looking to update your wardrobe to a more polished summery feel.

Mackintosh AW13 Pitti Preview
British outerwear at its best…
” - Who are you?
- Who? Who is but the form following the function of what and what I am is a man in a mask.
- Well I can see that.
- Of course you can. I’m not questioning your powers of observation; I’m merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is”

Spring Check in
It seems lately everything is about patterns: stripes, florals, surf inspired motifs or even wilder prints such as the ones from Gitman and Our Legacy latest drops, there’s a hype about which one is trendiest and what garments to sport them in. Although I’m a sucker for many of this season’s offerings I have to admit that checks still do, and have done so for me ever since their popularity boom about 3/4 years ago. There’s just something about a well balanced checked patterned that makes it both timeless and up to date, granting it a place in everyone’s wardrobe for years to come. This shirt by Our Legacy was love at first sight and has become the only short sleeve version in my wardrobe so far; the brilliant color scheme makes it perfect with denim and khakis while its casual feel allows to sport it over a tee. The polka dot pocket square on the trucker jacket opposes its relaxed nature and adds yet another pattern to the mix…
