Everyone needs a pair of classic black sunglasses in their summer rotation, and we recommend these Black Jimmy Sunglasses from You Must Create. Part of the brand’s new sunglasses collection – which has arrived just this week at OPUMO – the Jimmy is one of the widest unisex frames in the YMC collection, and they come with a square frame a slight 50’s ‘upsweep’ on the temple edge to give this vintage design a modern fit.
If there is one thing you can guarantee with every season, unlike the weather, is that military styles and silhouettes will influence what we wear in some way, shape or form. The Field Jacket – first used as a layering piece during World War Two – is a case in point, as it remains one of the most stylish outerwear options for the current spring-slash-summer crossover. Complete with a neat stowable hood and a signature patch pocket, this Timothy Everest Black Field Jacket is a stand-out choice courtesy of its semi-tailored fit and treated cotton outer that offers both wind and water resistance.
The Sweatshirt has been the subject of numerous high-fashion reinterpretations of late, yet this modern adaptation from Maison Kitsune takes inspiration from contemporary streetwear; woven with a sprinkling of Parisian flair in the form of the statement print on the front, alongside its long raglan sleeves, round neck and ribbed cuff and hem.
Classic straight leg trousers have crept into nearly every collection this spring, but there is still a danger of looking like you’re wearing old hand-me-downs if you over-indulge in the shape and fit of the straight-leg trouser. These loose-fitting 8oz denim ED-30 jeans from Edwin are the perfect fit as they include elastic fibres for added comfort and a high rise cropped leg that is designed to sit above the ankle – ideal for showing off your favourite pair of white sneakers.
New Balance continue to represent the best of US-UK relations with these M997 Sneakers that have been designed in the USA before heading to Britain for manufacturing. The classic 997 has been given a futuristic update for 2017, as the rich black premium suede uppers are matched with flecks of white, mesh and reflective accents for a crisp finish.
