Soulland Fall Men’s Collection 2011: Civilized

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 25, 2011 by James Field

One of my absolute menswear brands, Soulland showed their Fall 2011 collection during Paris Men’s Fashion Week to rave reviews. Inspired by the American Civil War, the collection boasted amazing outer wearpieces, fantastic suit separates and great footwear.

 Here’s designer Silas Adler about the collection:
“For the autumn/winter 2011 collection we studied the uniforms of the soldiers who fought the civil war and the flags  they served under. We were particularly inspired by the portraits of the time and the sense of honor in the soldiers that comes across in the portraits”.
“For the collection we also studied the details of the soldiers’ pockets and collars, and without making uniforms we worked to convert the details into modern menswear. There were many different levels of status in the troops and their clothing showed where in society they belonged. We especially looked at the hobo soldiers, their layering has served as a great inspiration throughout the development of the collection”.

 

Special thanks to Lisa and all the great people at Soulland!

Phillip Lim Fall 2011 Men’s Collection

Re affirming my belief that he is one of the most talented menswear designers in recent years, Phillip Lim has just released his Fall 2011 menswear collection for the first time in Paris. One of the reasons I adore his work so much, is because of his ability to blend seamless tailoring with modern silhouettes and shapes for. This collection was no failure in that department, the elastic ankle pants, slim fit suits and some the best layering techniques I have ever seen. The accessories and shoes were incredible as well, proving his talents do not just end at the clothing construction, but also the add ons. Congrats Phillip, and BRAVO!

In my option one of the best collections yet from Paris.  (Now just waiting on my Tim Hamilton to show and I will be complete!)
