This years SIHH (SALON INTERNATIONAL DE LA HAUTE HORLOGERIE) is currently in full swing (17th to 21st). Here are the highlights for the Panerai new releases. Some fantastic new time pieces, to say the least!
Moncler releases their Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook and honestly it has some hits and certainly some misses. The collection takes a style and sticks with it. The collection focuses on being colorful with strong reds, blues, greens and oranges.
Industry of All Nations collaborated with a community of traditional millers and manufacturers to produce a collection of all naturally-dyed, hand-loomed, selvage jeans from one hundred percent organic denim.
For the Fall/Winter 2011 collection, Costume National has added more shape, and layering to the clothes. Theres also a strong use of knitwear and subtle colour, generally black except for their use of a golden mustard color.
Uniqlo +J Spring/Summer 2011 gets much more technical than in previous seasons and outerwear offerings are really nice. Of course you also get a nice choice of well-cut shirts, knitwear, pants and accessories. To be released on January 26th.
The Spring Jacket | Barbour Dickens Parka. The Dickens jacket is fitted with a waxed cotton shell which will be perfect for the rainy weather ahead and the Brits sure do know how to protect themselves when the raindrops start falling.
Canadian brand Want Les Essentiels De La Vie has been known to make some outstanding travel items but their Haneda laptop bag is one of their best. This time, they’ve fitted the 13″ laptop bag with an organic denim shell and leather handles and other minute details.
Mt. Rainier Design 60/40 Down Parka. While this jacket’s primary job is to keep you warm, the while leather toggles and multiple pockets add to the functionality but give it some great detailing in the process. [Ed. Note: Sold out, unfortunately.]
Basil Racuk’s Soft Brief may be the perfect companion for your next weekend getaway. Each bag’s handmade by Basil in his northern California studio and it’s worth noting all the materials are sourced locally.
