This new drop from Legends of Copenhagen is the kind of coat that you’ve had your eye on for quite some time – or a coat very similar to this – because its classic silhouette and beautifully warm camel colour hue is essentially timeless. Tailored from a considerable rich wool blend, the Legends Pier Coat also benefits from a fitted shape that will suit any structure. As you can easily layer it up with shirts and t-shirts in slightly milder climates and heavy layers such as technical zip ups, knits and hoodies in the deeper depths of winter, too.
There’s a multitude of new watch brands out there but none have made quite the start to its life than About Vintage – the Scandinavian watchmakers who blend the best vintage designs with the finest modern components. This 1815 Chronograph Watch takes its name from the year 1815 – the year the chronograph technique was first invented - and its made entirely unique with its individual number engraved on the reverse of the case. Not to mention the sapphire glass and beautiful royal blue details that give the chronograph a more refined appearance.
“The way men are seen in photography, in fashion, and the way that men look at pictures of themselves has changed in recent years. It is a subject that has come into focus: The masculine image, a man's personal style, changing attitudes to the male face and body,”— Mario Testino. Inspired by those words, this brand-new book published by TASCHEN selects Testino’s finest male portraiture from the past 30 years. As costume, gender play, photojournalism, and fashion collide, this book is testimony to Testino’s unfailing eye for immediacy and elegancy, and the evolution of male self-expression over the past three decades. Well worth a read.
A couple of years ago ETQ Amsterdam launched its debut Chelsea Boot to great success. Now, two years on, it’s safe to say that ETQ have refined the recipe to create the all-new Cognac CB 01 Chelsea Boot. ETQ Amsterdam’s luxurious interpretation features handcrafted Italian suede uppers, elasticated side panels and a slim-line crepe sole for added durability. In actual fact, the crepe sole is the secret to it all. The sole offers a comfortable rebellion against the polished aesthetic of so many Chelsea Boots to add a little bit more flexibility and to ensure that the boots will work with just about anything in your wardrobe.
Neutrale is making its way in the world and building its name as a sustainable essentials studio, so it’s only fitting that the Madrid-based label would apply the same attention to detail to its every-expanding range of accessories. Made with natural and biodegradable vegetable wax – a clean and renewable source of energy – this candle offers a light and refreshing green tea scent that will be sure to enliven any living space.
