CP Company Goggle Jacket

A Look Through the Lens: CP Company SS’19

It’s barely over a week into 2019 and CP Company are already firing on all cylinders with their latest collection of urban sportswear. Boasting a plethora of details inspired by archival militaria from around the world (see: a lot of interesting pockets), the latest collection adds a futuristic utilitarian flair with asymmetrical detailing and technical fabrics galore. We took to the streets to show off some of our favourite bits from the first drop of the season.

CP Company Soft Shell Jacket Red

The soft shell Goggle Jacket is always a favourite; versatile enough to wear all year around, this season’s version comes in a fiery red shade that’s the ideal contrast to the rest of the collection’s navys and olives.

CP Company Overshirt Chrome Lens Detail

We’re big fans of layering around this time of year, and CP Company always deliver the goods. Case in point: this classic nylon overshirt combined with an asymmetrical hoodie as an insulating layer. The contrast of lengths and fabrics really marks this as something special. Teamed with the amazing Lens Backpack and you’ve got a complete package that’s sure to tackle whatever the urban jungle can throw at you.

CP Company Hooded Overshirt

It’s as strong of a start to the season as you could want, but we’ve no doubt that CP Company can keep up this momentum throughout 2019. Keep your eye on our social media channels for more news on the latest drops from CP Company and other top menswear brands.

Canada Goose SS18 drops at Aphrodite

Canada Goose was our saviour in winter, with styles such as the Chilliwack, Hybridge and Chateau parka being bestsellers throughout the colder months with their insulating properties. The brand for premium outerwear has just dropped their SS18 collection, introducing a range of slimline bomber jackets and lightweight pieces which will be ideal for the unpredictable weather.

Canada Goose SS18

The Faber bomber jacket is a prime example of what Canada Goose stand for; premium outerwear which always looks impeccable. Presented in a distinctive sandstorm camo colour-way, it has to be said that after seasons of block coloured garments, you would look twice after seeing the Canada Goose badge. The Faber, which is also available to buy in black, is the lightweight version of the Chilliwack bomber jacket. A two-way zip decorates the front, covered with a storm flap to conceal the fastening for a sleeker look. The abstract print alone is set to make this jacket turn heads. Not only oozing contemporary style, the Faber is durable and wind resistant without the excess weight. Crafted from Dura-Force nylon fabric which gives the jacket these properties without making the garment too heavy during the warmer days. Pockets are featured on the hips, with a military-style pocket to the sleeve. Of course, the Canada Goose logo sits on the sleeve, pride of place for an iconic finish.

Canada Goose Blue Jacket

The Dunham jacket is a similar style to the Faber, but holds a slightly slimmer fit. The casual padded bomber in permafrost grey features a high neckline which is crafted from ribbed cotton, making it comfortable and ensuring a great fit around the neck. Elasticated panelling is subtly boasted across the middle of the sleeves for movement and detail, co-ordinating with the black cotton cuffs which also have a stretch ability. Contrasting quilted panelling throughout the jacket gives a flattering, modern look which boasts timeless style. Choose from either the permafrost grey or black colour-way in this style.

Canada Goose Grey Jacket

Offering strategically placed down baffles to lock in warmth where you need it most, the hoody also has ribbed accents to the cuffs and hem for extra fit and comfort. One feature that makes this jacket so practical is the interior straps, enabling the wearer to take off the jacket and carry it on their shoulders if needed.

Stutterheim Brand Guide

The History of Stutterheim

It is highly unusual for a brand to align itself with the concept of ‘melancholy’, but that is exactly what Swedish raincoat masters Stutterheim proclaim: ‘Swedish Melancholy At Its Driest’. Rather than putting forth a sullen brand image, however, they use the idea of melancholy to project a sense of dissatisfaction with the status quo, with standing still, and a desire to innovate and change.

A relatively new brand, Stutterheim was conceived when the brand’s founder, Alexander Stutterheim, found his grandfather’s old raincoat in an abandoned barn on an island in the Stockholm peninsula. Admiring the workmanship and quality, Alexander resolved to craft a modern interpretation, and had 200 raincoats handmade in a factory in Sweden, selling them online from his living room. Seven years — and co-signs from Kanye West, Jay-Z and many others — later, Stutterheim raincoats are sold at select shops around the world, and are still handmade to exacting specifications.

Stutterheim Raincoats

Their most famous style, the Stockholm, is the original that was based on Alexander’s grandfather’s coat. Crafted in rubberised cotton, left unlined and with riveted stress points, the seams are double-welded to ensure water tightness. The work is all done by hand, and quality controlled by the same seamstresses to ensure consistency. They’ve also expanded their range to encompass different styles, such as mountain parkas and bomber jackets, while still utilising their rainproof fabrics and minimal designs to create a truly unique niche for themselves. All styles share the same level of quality assurance and waterproof tooling, while some, like the Stenhamra parka, use lighter weight, bonded waterproof materials to cut the weight and improve breathability.
