INTERVIEW: TITLE OF WORK

Art and Fashion are intrinsically intertwined. McQueen, Margiela, Rey Kawakubo, Rick Owens, Raf Simons and Craig Green are the first designers to come to mind. The accessory world, on the other hand, has surprisingly little to offer, focusing more on lucrative strategies. Rare are the talents rethinking the medium and...

The men’s collections are back after a break for Pitti Uomo. Milan’s collections, thanks to the exceptional tailors and Italian mills, have renowned for their sharp silhouettes and wonderful fabrics choices. But with London getting a serious momentum, things have changed and designers have clearly felt the pressure to offer...

SHOPPING: ONKLER SS15

SHOPPING: ONKLER SS15

It’s been a while since I’ve found such a bold and avant-garde eyewear brand. While it’s relatively easy to purchase psychedelic or futuristic vintage sunglasses, especially from the 70s and 80s, it’s more challenging to find a collection with the same cohesiveness and dedication. Onkler’s creative mind, Nicolas Jahns, 29, created Onkler to celebrate the people, fictional or real, who have inspired or empowered him. Unlike other...

NOW: JIL SANDER SS15

Since its creation in 1973, Jil Sander (the brand) had quite of a tumultuous journey. Jil (the woman) was, along with a group of young Japanese designers (Rei Kawakubo’s Comme des garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake…) one of the rare brave souls contesting the glorious 80s. The brand took off commercially right before the 90s, helped by...

NOW: NICOMEDE TALAVERA SS15

After studying on a BA Menswear degree, Nicomede worked at 3.1 Philip Lim and Lanvin for a few months before returning the CSM to achieve a Master in fashion. Most students graduating from Central Saint Martins tend to obsess with abstraction and volumes. John Galliano, Alexander McQueen or Hussein Chalayan, just to name a few, are perfect examples of...

SHOPPING: KIRK ORIGINALS

Created in 1992 in London, Kirk Originals became immediately Jetset’s favorite from Brits brand Oasis to Hollywood’s A-List Julia Roberts. Their quirky designs, very unique at that time, helped to establish the brand and revived vintage’s inspired eyewear. Two decades later, the brand is making a welcome comeback with some additional styles and reissues all honoring the brand’s...

NOW: HUNTER GATHER SS15

I lately become obsessed with understated pieces, not that I’m experiencing a certain fatigue but after seeing so many collections conceptualizing too hard, I needed simplicity. It also comes down to a really basic question: “how to be cool without looking like a fool?”. Co-founded by stylist David Bradshaw (ex-Arena Magazine) and designer Chris Bailey (for creative director at Jigsaw Menswear)...

The punk spirit is stronger than ever with this new Dr Martens collection! As always, you’ll find the beautiful classic brogues, all Made in England and using a new shiny Portuguese leather, but it wouldn’t be a proper Dr Martens without a vibrant homage to the American Hardcore scene with these red or blue boots (who...

NOW: JOSEPH SS15

Leather up! According to Mark Thomas (Joseph’s designer since two seasons) summer is officially time to wear leather pants. While it might seem like an anomaly, it actually translates well what this collection’s narrative is about, a growing man. After a darker fall – winter collection, this season explores a different man, more confident, playful, sharp but relaxed, and...

SHOPPING: NIKELAB FREE RIFT SANDAL

Looking in the past to reinvent the future seems to be Nike’s latest mantra. After revisiting a few of its classics (Air Force, Air Max, …), Nike, through its experimental division NikeLab, just reimagined the Rift, a hybrid between a sandal and a sneakers. Launched in 1996, the Rift was initially designed to offer runners flexibility...
