Filippa K‘s spring collection is casually relaxed dressing at its finest. There’s a balance of classic tailoring and modern styling, where the pieces are well cut and the presentation’s tremendous. New basics range from modern fit polos and chinos to a nylon jacket and car coat.

Kapital Fall/Winter 2009 Lookbook

Kapital Fall/Winter 2009 Lookbook

There are very few things I’d be willing to travel across the world for and the menswear lines coming out of (or actually staying in) Japan rest atop this list. The scene is definitely one to envy. The future men’s fashion capital of the world is lead by labels that challenge their designers’ creative ambitions and break away from structured design philosophies all-while leaving us, the consumer, stunned. Kapital‘s collections are flawless, with pieces as well-crafted and timeless as we’d want them. Items on display for this season are made of thick fabrics to keep us warm and fitted with artful styling details. If I’m ending this statement pre-maturely it’s because I’m at a loss for words. I hope that we get to see more Japan’s hidden gems in the near future.

Opening Ceremony Fall 2010 Part II [British Invasion]

Opening Ceremony Fall 2010 Part II [British Invasion]

For part deuce of their men’s line for the fall, Opening Ceremony imagined an English counterpart to our young Frenchman: a long lost brother born and raised across the channel. More structured Savile Row-inspired tailoring offers a contrast to the softer suits of first delivery. In addition to nods toward traditional English style like tweed hunting gear, waxed jackets, and British military uniforms, the second delivery references a spectrum of Brit youth subcultures including suits in glam rock colors, Mod-inspired parkas for layering over slim jackets and trousers, subtle punk references like pyramid stud buttons, and skinhead fit jeans. Camel cashmere, military-grade wool, waxed twill, high dimension corduroy, fluorescent Fair Isle knits, and other Anglo-centric fabrics comprise the collection.

Expect the second men’s delivery to drop a little later in the fall with plenty of warm weather essentials, including an oversized, long nylon military bomber jacket.

Vancouver-based Wings + Horns has dropped looks at their Spring 2010 collection, and presents it in two distinct sub-collections. Items from the Archive collection are made of the same quality and standards the label was built on. Research takes a look into the future and attempts to give us a look at what the label could be. Experimenting is never a bad thing and Wings + Horns has done a pretty solid job this time around.

Look for the collection to drop in fine retailers like Blackbird in the coming months.

Umit Benan “Cuba” Spring/Summer 2010

Umit Benan "Cuba" Spring/Summer 2010

We’ve appreciated Umit Benan‘s approach and vision since the first time we laid eyes on their pieces some seasons ago. For SS ’10, Umit Benan takes inspiration from Tony Montana and his homeland of Cuba. As Umit sees his men as stylish and with strong personalities, they have the confidence to challenge themselves with some of the more feminine details and ideas he has incorporated into this collection such as – exaggerated pleated pants, draped t-shirts, over size ruffled shirt and attached shirt-ties. Through all the novel details and silhouettes, they still maintain their sense of masculinity, confidence and self respect.
