A really solid looking canvas backpack will release from the YMC Autumn Winter 2011 Collection. The heritage looking backpack has been a much re-interpreted piece in recent seasons. What we especially like about this one, is the size and the great combination of the orange canvas upper and dark brown leather details. HS
If you’re running out of patience waiting for A.P.C. Winter collection to arrive, here’s the A.P.C. Pre-Fall/Winter 2011 Collection. The collection is a nice mix of casual summer pieces such as T-shirts and shorts, as well as slightly heavier pieces that are insulating enough to keep you warm but not too much.
Nudie Jeans puts their unique spin on the classic khaki pants with the introduction of Nudie Jeans ‘Khakis’ in their Autumn Winter 2011 Collection. Sticking to their roots, their contemporary skinny and slim fit Khakis are a nod to their origins from fishermen on a small island off the Swedish west coast. My favourite fit from any jean brand is Nudies Thinn Finn & Grim Tim so I cant wait to take delivery of these chinos.
The adidas SLVR Fall/Winter 2011 Collection makes for welcoming news, with another clean and minimalistic line of footwear coming to fruition. On par with other sub lines from the renowned sports wear brand, like Y-3 and the O by O lines, the SLVR line provides a fascinating combination of technology and authentic references for a collection of lifestyle products, perhaps witnessed best with the footwear.

It was evident at the show for Jil Sander’s Fall 2011 collection that Belgian designer Raf Simons intends to continue building upon the minimal aesthetic that he has created for the label. Most notable were the ribbed knits and three-buttoned flecked felt suits, both of which were shown in a number of different colors ranging from orange and fuchsia to blue, grey and mustard. More than a few times, the brightly colored pieces found themselves cleverly situated atop of each other as turtlenecks were layered underneath quilted tops and ribbed sweaters were styled over collared shirts. Even the hood of a utilitarian parka was lined with a contrasting pink lining. Evoking a spirit of youth and adventure, it’s safe to say that Jil Sander will be one of the standout menswear collections of the season.
Just when you thought Burberry couldn’t possibly come up with yet another way to redesign its classic outerwear, the ubiquitous British house has updated its traditional, heritage-inspired aesthetic with an approach that’s completely and utterly modern. For Fall 2011, Burberry Prorsum’s creative director Christopher Bailey dug deep into the label’s archives to deliver a truly unique collection of all-weather pieces. Opening with an array of brightly colored, buffalo checked coats, Bailey slowly introduced an interesting cocoon-sleeved silhouette followed by down jackets, camel coats and thick-soled shoes with deep grooves and leather tassels. Things took an unusual turn when, one-by-one, models began appearing on the runway in a slew of fur-covered looks ranging from fur shirts and hats to tweed overcoats with fur accents. The show’s finale was nothing less than theatrical when the models walked out into a mock rainstorm wearing clear slickers. Those of you who can’t wait until autumn to get your hands on these pieces will be pleased to know that Burberry has made every coat available for immediate purchase until January 23 on Burberry.com.
