Beams Autumn/Winter 2009-10 Catalog

Beams Autumn/Winter 2009-10 Catalog

We want what we cannot have. It’s simple human nature, but it especially holds true for the fine items in Beams’ A/W ’09 catalog. A wonder display of the best the Japanese have to offer, the lookbook gives us a sense of all the things we’re doing wrong and how we can correct them. Beams+ has always done a wonderful job with styling and presentation, something the A/W ’09 catalog doesn’t lack.

Autumn/Winter 2009: Burberry Black Label Lookbook

Autumn/Winter 2009: Burberry Black Label Lookbook

Burberry Black Label is another we’re oh so jealous of the boys on the other side of the World. The line is exclusive to Japan and as photos of the Autumn/Winter ’09 collection have been released, we thought it was only right we turn you to the goods. Entitled ‘A Portrait in Black’, the latest lineup is as fulfilling and elegant of those from seasons past. Hypebeast states, “Whilst the aesthetic is generally formal, there are a few more casual jackets, no more so than the pink quilted number. As always, despite the British tone to the collection, its release will be limited to Japan.”

Spring/Summer 2010: Red Collar Project Lookbook [Great Expectations]

Spring/Summer 2010: Red Collar Project Lookbook [Great Expectations]Spring/Summer 2010: Red Collar Project Lookbook [Great Expectations]

Charles Dickens’ masterpiece Great Expectations was the inspiration behind Red Collar Project’s S/S 2010 collection. If not familiar, the story is about Pip, a young orphan boy who’s raised by his abusive sister and her husband. At this point, he lacked much motivation but when an anonymous benefactor offers him wealth on the condition that he leave for London, he agrees. In London, his lifestyle changes as he is groomed to be a Genteman, rather than a slacker as he once was. Red Collar Project brings influence from both aspects of Pip’s life, showing us bright colors and free spirit design mixed with dapper layers of conservative design.

Fall + Winter 2009: J.Lindeberg

For the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons, J.Lindeberg’s blessing us with one amazing collection. Selectism tells us “Inspiration for J.Lindeberg’s AW09 collection came from a combination of Serge Gainsbourg, and Yves Klein.  It’s about quintessential French masculinity and an approach to life when you don’t save your best for special occasions but celebrate them every day.”

Zara Fall + Winter 2009 Lookbook

Zara Fall + Winter 2009

Model Andres Velencoso Segura presents to us Zara’s lineup for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons. Expect warm fabrics and one well-fitted double-breasted suit in a black finish. The Spanish label’s definitely pleased the masses with their recession-friendly prices and moda fits.

I’ve had the pleasure of checking out a hand-full of their locations in the Tri-State area and the one thing they don’t lack is consistency. Their retail shops are seldom out of stock on a particular item so we shouldn’t have any trouble grabbing that fur lined work jacket for around $200. Now, if they could get their factories to up their quality a bit without pressing the inflation button.
