Paris Highlights

Last weekend we went to Paris to check out the (capsule) & MAN fashion fairs. As usual we had a great and inspirational time. Here's a look at some of the highlights from the shows

Momotaro & Japan Blue was looking great as usual

Awesome suiting from Mr Mark Mcnairy

Levi's Vintage Clothing showed us some amazing jersey knits

The Master-Piece bags are always a favourite

This was something I found really interesting. Enviromentally conscious brand TWOTHIRDS have put together water soluble plastic bags that they wrap their clothing in. After only a day the plastic completely breaks down & dissolves.

British/Japanese denim brand Allevol had some great collaborations going on with Japanese shirt makers Sunny Sports & accesory brand The Superior Labor

Kitsuné Tee is evolving nicely, continuing the collaboration with Swedish/French grafitti-artist André & also working together with New Era on a couple of really cool hats. Personally I really love the shoes too!

Perks And Mini was a little less loud than usual yet still maintaining the typical PAM look. I particularily liked the flannels & the New Zealandic wool knitwear 

Next stop is Copenhagen, check back soon for a blog on what we've seen there!

Pitti Uomo - A peek at the goods

Following our post on the well dressed men of Pitti Uomo, we wanted to give you a sneek peek at some of the shows most inspiring pieces & brands. 

President's is a fairly new Italian brands that deals only in the finest materials, such as Loro Piana, Harris Tweed, Cashmere, Japanese flannel & Vachetta leathers, all put together into beautiful updates on rugged work- & military wear by artisans in Tuscany.

Rocky Mountain Featherbed was looking extremely good (as always) and gave us a preview of their anticipated collaboration with Clark's Originals!

Japanese brand The Superior Labor has gained a lot of well deserved international attention lately, we can assure you that their bags & fine accesories definetly live up to all the hype. TSL's booth was shared with Riding High, another Japanese brand that focusses on recreating classic sports apparel. Intensely well made, Riding High was one of my absolute favourites of the show! 

Another super inspiring part of Pitti was the "Versus Tokyo - Tokyo Fashion Week In Italy" floor which featured brands like Terrem, Habanos & Whiz to name a few. I particularily fell in love with the Terrem shoes, Habanos shirts & the beautiful patchwork type 1 jacket from Whiz.

Just as last time Monitaly showed an extremely impressive set up. My favourites this season were the waxed & the rip stop mountain parkas & the fantastic woolen camo pieces

Tokyo based brand Minotaur showed some beautiful shirtwear woven & dyed in a traditional Japanese way

One of Diemme's newer shoe styles. I dig!

Superfine quality wool from Sunspel's vintage line.

Dual-Ism Project is a new line from classic Japanese ski-wear brand Descente. Dual-Ism is built around an idea of having two different uses for one product. This means the styling is very urban, yet the product still maintains the Hi-Tech nature ready quality associated with Descente. A cool piece from Dual-Ism was the weather proof wool parka, competed with a hi tech membrane.

Belgian brands Bellerose & Howlin' By Morrison looked really good with lots of fresh an inspiring colors.

Amazing footwear from Needles

Waxed goodness by Ally Capellino.

Stay tuned as we get ready for our trip to this years edition of the Capsule show in Paris!
