Recently, I visited the Paltò Italia showroom, a coat is a base of each wardrobe. Paltò, which means in Italian “a coat”, brings tradition, heritage, detailing and craftsmenship to reality. Designed by Luca Paganelli and inspired by some icons like the Duke of Windsor, James Dean and Jean Paul Belmondo, the collections is packed with Tweeds, Herringbone and Checked overcoats in a broad range of styles and lengths. I loved the nylon vest in yellow with wool details.
Beams Plus has unveiled its Spring/Summer 2015 lookbook; and for this season , the Japanese brand has infused its signature Americana style with military influences.
Titled “Plus Spec,” the new collection draws inspiration from mid-century innovations, specifically the technological developments by the U.S. armed forces and the muted color palette they are commonly associated with.
The collection has that typical Beams Plus look with pieces which are unmistakably American Prep. Like you have the plaid shorts, knitted green cable sweaters, button-down shirts and seersucker suits.
It's an open door if I tell you that I have a weakness for Filson. Two weeks ago on my trip to London I finally had the change to visit the first European Store of Filson, located in the heart of SoHo, London. In the Newburgh street store you will find jackets, small leather goods, bags, and luggage all inspired by outdoor pursuits. There is also an assortment of authentic special edition worn-in Filson luggage.
The Inspiration for the J.Crew Men's Fall/Winter 2015 was found in a trip Frank Muytjens made to a vintage Army & Navy show in the south of England. As you can see the color palette is on green, khaki and navy blues, with military details such as wool cargo pants. I love those pop-over shirts in camel and navy.
