From Pitti 2011 comes this in-depth look at Adam Kimmel’s forthcoming collaboration with Carhartt. The collection launches this coming fall for F/W 2011 seasons and these looks give us a glimpse into what the duo will offer up for next spring. “The upcoming SS12 line plays mostly with black, beige and of course the signature blue tones of the New York designer. Made up of t-shirts, crewneck sweaters, jackets, blazers, as well as some mesh caps, it would not be a Kimmel collection without a couple of reversible pieces as well. ” (via highsnobiety)

Surely the highlight of this year’s Pitti Uomo, Scott Sternberg and Co. at Band of Outsiders really swung for the fences with their Spring/Summer 2012 presentation as they payed homage to West Side Story. The presentation was Broadway-esque with modern American clothing featured on models and real dancers. The gear itself looked amazing as well as we’ll be in for a treat come next spring. There’s plenty of lightweight cottons being utilized throughout the line and the outerwear and suiting are definitely atop the list of recipients.

The famed designer’s Spring 2012 collection is on display this week at Pitti and there’s a lot to anticipate. The footwear is looking promising once again with a full range of styles being offered including a dark suede brogue that sits atop a wooden sole and Goodyear construction. Some of the styles come with some choice words engraved on the bottom of the shoe (see image below).

Haversack has released shots from its S/S 2012 lookbook ahead of the Pitti Uomo preview, but we’re sure that will only increase the floods of people checking out the Japanese label’s goods in person. The styling of the pieces is very forward as we’re seeing slim-fitting blazers with relaxed trousers but the showcased product is still tremendous. (via WATM)
