Our Legacy SS11 Lookbook

Coming from Sweden, Our Legacy is fast becoming a staple brand in the new wave of contemporary menswear. Here is what they are up to for Spring/Summer 2011 with their “Observations” collection. I could begin to explain the collection and inspirations so here what the guys themselves said about the collection.

A persons work indeed reflects a lot upon its personality. By observing the behaviour and appearance of an individual you can take a good guess on what they are occupied with most of their time. Fore some people it is very important what your profession is and for some it doesn ?t matter that much. One thing is sure though, what you wear and how you wear it, is a reflection of your work and the other way around. Some trades require a strict dress code and leaves only small, yet very important details to play with, while some professions have developed their own subcultures with focus on style.

Maison Martin Margiela ‘Wooden’ Shoes

The last time a wood-inspired shoe caught our attention was five years ago, with Michael Lau’s Nike Dunk SB Low. That certainly wasn’t the last time, but these oxfords over here have piqued our interest.  After releasing the ultra chic ladies’ patent wooden print pumps for Winter 2010, Maison Martin Margiela continues his unconventional designs with wood effect shoes for men. Made from nappa leather and featuring a cap toe.

 

Adidas O by O James Bond for David Beckham SS11

This has suprised a few people. Thanks to the design of UNDFTD’s James Bond and the global visibility of David Beckham, here’s a look into the adidas Originals by Originals range for Spring/Summer 2011. The collection maintains a certain cool and easy-going aesthetic with several timeless elements throughout. Graphics are largely kept to a minimum and are exemplified by clean lines. Look for the collection at select retailers in the very near future.
