Stephan Schneider Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

Stephan Schneider Spring/Summer 2012 Men's Collection

We’ve got looks from Stephan Schneider’s Spring 2012 collection which are filled with some clean stylings and fine details to boot. The “Common Ivy” collection is quite different than what we’ve seen from the label in the past but it’s still above the cut of many other menswear designers on the market. Stephan designs all the fabrics himself and splits his time between textiles and designs. Their own Belgian production facilities are utilized to craft the goods, with all the pieces being cut by hand and given plenty of time for the finer details. (via the189)

UNUSED Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

UNUSED Japan Spring/Summer 2012 Men's Collection

From Japanese label UNUSED comes a look at their Spring 2012 offerings. The pieces are shown here in a more relaxed fit. The color palette is a bit more subdued than collections from seasons past but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The pieces are still unique and still feature a strong attention to detail, even through the wash of some of the denims. Look for oversized shorts, sleeveless trenches, drop crotch pants and much more. (via houyhnhnm)
