Taking some time to look back at last month’s Jacket Required, we get down to business bringing you our favorite future purchases from the London show. Here, a selection of picks that should offer something for everyone: motorcycle jackets from two famous names, outer space footwear, candles to get you lightheaded and indigo expertise await you in our Buyer’s Guide.
No strangers to collaboration on either side, Barbour and Deus ex Machina just makes sense. For next summer look out for colorful biker-friendly International jackets as well as print layers with a tropical feel.
Metallic Footwear from Soulland
If jazzy is what you’re after look no further than Soulland’s footwear for next year. A brogue and Birkenstock-esque silhouette with silver and blue shine are the prefect way to introduce some space-suit goodness into your wardrobe.
Jersey & Sweats from Eat Dust
Inspired by vintage motorcycle clothing and ’50s/’60s subcultures, Eat Dust impressed with spot-on T-shirts and sweats featuring wide surfer stripes and v-stitch collars. Heavyweight cotton and quality construction, we’re onboard.
Handmade Whisky Scented Candles from Garmsville
Produced in London Town, these handmade candles from label Garmsville come in a range of scents, our personal favorite, whisky, will have you feeling tipsy after one enthusiastic sniff.
Clarks Originals Pastel Shades in Suede
Clarks go for softer pastel colors in their freshest collection. Light blues, greys, mauves and mint greens across iconic models including the Wallabee and Desert boot transform Fall footwear into Spring appropriate steppers.
Hancock Water-Resistant Print Outerwear
Hancock continue to push prints for those who prefer their bonded rainwear with plenty of pattern. Repeat geometric shapes should make sure you’re seen on any overcast day.
Blitz Paris and Edwin build on a longstanding friendship and we’d say Spring 2015 is just about the best collection the duo have produced. Herringbone twill jackets, tough cotton t-shirts and some fantastic patches were our standouts of the line.
Circular Eyewear from Han Kjobenhavn
Han Kjobenhavn are a reliable source of contemporary eyewear season after season. The real winners in their upcoming Summer line are an extensive selection of round frames that should have something to suit every face shape.
Wood Wood Leather Laptop Cases
Wood Wood put out a strong collection for Summer 2015 but it was the range of accessories on offer that really stuck in our minds. These simple tan leather laptop cases with silver W.W. branding are sure to sell out.
Indigo Experimentation from KOI
Kings of Indigo know their way around a vat of blue dye. Here they put their skills to good use with a fantastically uneven print against a quilted shirt jacket, polka dots, stripes and zig-zags all present.
