Common Projects Spring Summer 2013

20130130-091745.jpg

When founders Prathan Poopat and Flavio Girolami started Common Projects, their mission was to create minimalist, comfortable sneakers, made in Italy using only the finest materials. In addition to a utilitarian design, the shoes were virtually anonymous, with exterior branding limited to the article number and shoe size, factory-stamped in gold foil near the heel. The brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection is largely an extension of that original mission statement, with new slip-on sneakers, tennis shoes and crepe-soled loafers joining reliable standbys like the Achilles and Tournament, finished in new colours and materials for spring.

T by Alexander Wang Autumn Winter 2013

taw1-560x420

 

In the majority I prefer T than Alexander Wang’s mainline. It’s more relaxed and wearable. The Autumn Winter 13 collection stays true to past collection colour pallets with dark toned greens, black, greys  and more on contemporary outerwear and pants. This Winter offers new pieces like stylish hooded sweatshirts that cover the neck, soft button-down cardigans and long coats, while returned options include rich leather jackets and multiple sweatpants.

Made in the UK from suede and wool, small detailing like the waxed rounded laces and pull heel tab provides a nice touch while the leather lining, red colored stormwelt and vibram sole completes a great design. Will be buying as soon as I finish this post

The latest from Gucci is a reinterpretation of the classic biker jacket. Sporting a worn-in aesthetic, it’s leather composition exhibits a unique distressed detailing for added character, merging vintage elements perfectly with its modern craftsmanship of luxurious Italian heavyweight material.

Comprised of a slate blue finish, silver accents are applied for the buttons and zippers for a contrasting touch, a nice alterative to the traditional black versions.
