Blood Brother Autumn Winter 15 | FROGMAN

Blood Brother AW15 | The Style Raconteur

Blood Brother retun for Autumn Winter 2015 with their best collection to date as far as I am concerned. This season shows Blood Brother’s continued push towards luxury with a mature leather and outerwear offering. Leather flight jackets with shearling detachable collars, Shearling jackets and heat sealed Trench coats using waterproof Limonta fabric stand out from the range. The streamlined theme continues in the shirt offering with a unique use of magnets to create a buttonless over the head shirt, giving a smarter look to this season for the brand.

Blood Brother have taken inspiration from underwater military intelligence units most notably the ‘SBS’ or special boat service. The collection interprets the same underwater shadowy realm as some of these combatants have to operate.  The Sun Tzu idea of deception is notable throughout, with a dark almost dull colour pallete helping to minimize visibility with exception to the glow pieces which radiate light when charged, deceiving the eye. Multiple pockets, heat sealing and unique patterns creating hidden seams push the message of stealth….Take a peek at the look below styled and photographed by fellow northerners Jordan Scheider & Ben Benoliel.

Pitti Uomo Spring Summer 2014, Florence Street Style

The style raconteur pitti

Once again it is June, also known as menswear month in the fashion calendar. A few days ago, London Collections succesfully kicked off the global menswear circuit, followed by Florence, Milan and last but not least, Paris. The summer buying season is always a favourite of mine and Pitti Uomo being my favourite show. The Italians just know how to ‘do it’ …. so I am curently enjoying (and mostly not enjoying, way too hot for work) 40 degrees of sunshine in Florence.

Style Style outside and inside of the show is big business for the hundreds of photographers of fashion blogs and the internet fame hungry visitors some of which I swear rock fancy dress just to get a picture taken! Anyway check out a round up of some of the amazing dressed people (and a few not so amazing!)
