There’s No I In Team

There’s No I In Team

The big news to travel around the Paris showrooms during Mens Fashion Week was the collaborative effort between Adam Kimmel and Carhartt. A new year announcement, it seems to be the must-have collection for next winter according to the gospel of some of boutique buyers. While little detail has emerged by way of collection images, if you’re up-to-date with the blogs this new designer/heritage brand association will be a cross between Kimmel’s own Americana and the workwear style that Carhatt is champion of. Kimmel must already be feeling the Carhartt effect, given his recent Winter 2011 presentation clearly erred on the side of tough guy. Rugged denim, motorcyle leathers and apache style detail, it’s all very masculine and a change to his habitual collections of grandpa style dressing for the wilderness. Perhaps that will make it a good match, though we can only guess until May when it makes its retail debut.

On The Road Again

On The Road Again

Concerned with promotion rather than profit, the planned spontaneity of pop up stores seems more a form of guerilla marketing than a bet on mass consumption. Pop up one day, disappear the next.

Hey, Good Looking

Hey, Good Looking

Finding themselves in Sydney after years of travel, expats Sam Rush and Henry Allum saw a way to inject the local market with a bit of British style. Three seasons young, and Handsom are setting a precedent for unpretentious, classic pieces.
