Things are getting back to normal this week. Temperatures have dropped to a more realistic British summertime level, out of office emails of people on holiday are drying up, and the Premier League is back in full swing, and consequently, your weekend has a routine again. One thing that never stands still, though, is our latest category and this week’s it’s been ramped up a fair bit with the latest seasonal releases from YMC, Common Projects and ETQ Amsterdam. So, scroll down to discover the top 5 items to drop this week and check out last week’s Top 5 before it’s too late.
Last week we all began to wear trousers again after months of abstaining. That conservative decision has made us all think about what we will be wearing over the next couple of months, but the answer to that question is likely to be something like this Orange Dean Shirt from YMC. The British brand’s new autumn/winter collection has landed online this week, and this understated pastel adaptation of the long-term favourite, the Dean shirt, returns again. It’s lightweight, has that nice relaxed button-down collar, a comfortably relaxed fit and a simple patch pocket on the chest to boot. Plus, in accordance with the free and easy aesthetic that YMC has become so known for, the Dean Shirt is constructed from a cotton-linen blend and a relaxed, vertical orange stripe design which will be easy to wear in the depths of winter as it will in the final dregs of summer.
We often say that one of the strengths of ETQ Amsterdam is its unpredictability; the fact that you just don’t know where they will step to next. Basically, these new sunglasses sum that analogy up, as they represent ETQ’s first foray into sunglasses. Better still, these ETQ Amsterdam x VIU 02 sunglasses are individually 3D printed layer by layer using specialist 3D printing techniques based on Polyamide powder. The frames are ultra-lightweight, highly-resistant and absolutely sustainable with zero waste manufacturing. Plus, they come with anti-reflective, anti-scratch coating which means they’ll look just as good next summer as they do right now.
Kolla was founded just this year with the ambition of ‘seeing the world differently’ and they encourage you to do this same with a selection of curated high-quality, affordable photographic art. They also collaborate with some of the world’s finest undiscovered photographers to bring a lot of unseen photographs to the fore, including this mesmeric ‘Slow Fast Lane’ snap by Martin Bohm. It’s an image that’s pretty much the epitome of Kolla’s ethos as this contrasting and uncrowded scene goes to show that ‘when you’re seeing the world differently, it’s the seen that can sometimes go unseen, and that’s where the magic lies.’
It’s safe to say sculpture and lighting are becoming one of the same, especially when you look through a few of the latest arrivals from Muuto & FLOS, and the new CS1 Pendant Light from NOOM is another to add to that growing list. Inspired by the geometric works of Kazimir Malevich, the simple geometric structure of the lamp will look like small, considered art objects in the house while the use of pop colour lifts the pendant above a lot of the other alternatives thanks to its warm, ambient glow.
Premium suede uppers, complementing tonal soles and the signature subtle gold stamp to the heel. They look the same, but just better. These all-new Common Projects Achilles Lows in a brushed Olive colour hue will be the perfect complement to any autumn-winter colour palette, from black, khaki, grey and navy, which means you’ll get a lot of wear out of them over the next few months.
