CP Company AW19 : Urban Equipment

CP Company AW19 Arrivals

Attention all goggle hood fanatics we’ve just found ourselves in the possession of a fresh batch of CP Company garments. Spanning graphic print t-shirts, overshirts, joggers, hoodies and just about everything else you could wish for, we’re sure this first glance behind the CP Company AW19 curtain will certainly pique your interest for things to come.

Promising more of the same militaristic styling and technical nuance that has propelled the Italian brand into cultural stardom, this first arrival digs its heels deep into the brand’s signature trademarks with plenty of rich garment-dyed colours, complex fabrication and lens detailing up for grabs.

CP Company New Arrivals

To kick proceedings off it would only be right that we get things underway with all things chrome metal. An inherent component of their outerwear offering, thanks to its versatility, functional qualities and dyeing capabilities, the fabric is often seen spread evenly across collections no matter the time of year.

More recently, with the overshirt becoming a more prominent piece in contemporary wardrobes, the nylon-based material has had its moment to shine, lending itself perfectly to the jacket meets shirt combination and compounding with the classic CP design ethos to dazzling effect. Case and point these rather stunning black and blue examples below…

CP Company Overshirt

Taking on a somewhat more traditional silhouette than some of CP’s overshirt output the garments hold the brand’s core values of usability and practicality at their core. Boasting a diverse, almost unfair, the line-up of intrinsic properties that encompass everything from breathability to elemental resistance, the lightweight jackets come imbued with quick-drying qualities and are treated with unique colour processes for a distinctive finish. If that wasn’t enough you can also find both a zip pocket to the chest and sleeve accompanied by the unmistakable lens motif and some handy adjustable cuffs.

Elsewhere CP Company set their experimental sights on more cotton-based endeavours, using their years of clothing expertise to revamp quintessential pieces of casual outfitting. Taking the usual zip hoodie formula to its very limit, this season sees the off-duty piece bolstered out with a google lens buckle secured hood, a partially ribbed hem and two front zip pockets for a more pragmatic approach. Pair it up with the brand’s ever-on-point joggers and you’ve got yourself an ensemble presenting maximum comfort laced with an urban edge.

Sweatshirts, t-shirts and polo shirts have also received some love with not only a quality dusty pink colour on offer but a number of top-notch adaptions of CP Company’s usual callouts present and correct for all of your branded needs. Spanning subtle tonal embroidery, not so subtle argyle style patterning and tasteful patchwork there really is something for everyone to get their teeth stuck into no matter you’re your preferred approach.

With archival inspiration and a desire to innovate fuelling their steadfast sensibilities, CP Company has consistently surpassed expectations, evolving collection to collection in a way that not only pushes the brand into new territories but manages to preserve the very essence that has got them this far. It seems, based upon what we have got our hands on up until now, CP Company AW19 is set to be no different.

Vivienne Westwood New Arrivals

Vivienne Westwood: Elevated Essentials

Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer Collection

There are some garments which every man needs in his wardrobe all year round. A smart shirt, a casual polo, some basic t-shirts and of course a pair of well-fitting trousers. Luckily for those of us who may find themselves missing one or two of these essential components Vivienne Westwood are on hand supplying the goods when it comes to the highest quality bits rammed full of both subtle and not so subtle change ups. Take a look below…

Vivienne Westwood New Arrivals

We challenge you to find us a more perfectly transitional piece for summer than a long sleeve polo shirt. Breathable enough to withstand the blistering daytime heat but with that extra flourish of protection when things begin to cool down, it provides an exceptional top half choice that is easily paired up with shorts and trousers alike. Apart from being extremely easy on the eyes this particular offering from Westwood boasts an elongated two button placket, wide striped collar, soft 100% cotton pique construction and is finished with the classic embroidered orb logo to the chest, signifying the designers dedication to taking tradition into the future. If you’re looking for the social butterfly of top-half attire that’s capable of occasion spanning powers like no other, than look no further.

Vivienne Westwood Polo ShirtVivienne Westwood Spring Summer

Next up we have the polos equally as versatile but slightly smarter cousin the button up shirt. Crafted from a lightweight cotton that is perfect for all year round wear it not only showcases Westwood’s affinity for tailoring but their ability to build upon traditional menswear tropes and deliver something that feels completely unique. Equipped with the orb logo embroidered to the chest, concealed collar button downs and subtle hits of branding the garment comes to a head with a three top button accent, providing a playful twist on a tried and tested silhouette.

Vivienne Westwood Shirt

Bolstering out these looks we have some of Westwood’s timeless basic t-shirts layered below. Available in a range of colours and made from 100% organic cotton they keep things minimal with some slight alterations to fit and the orb logo stamped to the chest for an unmistakable badge of quality.

Vivienne Westwood New Collection

But of course we can’t focus solely on the waist up especially not when sporting a pair of trousers as top notch as the ones pictured above. Using a contrasting mixture of a relaxed drawstring waist and a sharp tailored cut these legwear titans cleverly manage to merge the worlds of razor sharp sophistication with optimum comfort. Boasting a tapered cut that not only compliments the flowy blend material on offer, but finishes at a raw, exposed hem, the trousers bring a fresh perspective to a vital bit of menswear kit injecting the everyday black trouser with lashings of personality.

Vivienne Westwood SweatshirtVivienne Westwood New Arrivals

Dipping our toe into the Vivienne Westwood’s more runaway influenced pieces this sweatshirt from the Spring Summer collection holds no punches when it comes to bold printed design. Making nods to the designers strong political stance and undeniable punk influences that ran central to many of her early collections, it utilises traditional Chinese ink line drawings fragmented by vocal messaging for a piece that not only makes a first impression but has the depth to back it up. Decked out with ribbing to the neck, hem and cuffs for a defined shape the sweatshirt can be paired up with the matching, equally as loud, shorts for a two-piece ensemble that will almost definitely steal some looks this summer.

Stone Island

How To Take Your Stone Island Sweatshirt From Day To Night

You might be wondering how you can get the most out of your Stone Island sweatshirt. If so, keep reading for the ultimate style guidance.

The Stone Island sweatshirt is a versatile piece that can be transformed to fit in with a low-key or smart outfit. This season we have a range of different colour-ways available in the sweatshirt, so it’s worth investing in a few of them to add classic style to your wardrobe.

Dress down

Stone Island Sweatshirt

It’s easy to give your sweatshirt a casual look with the garment being quite relaxed. We’ve decided to style the sweatshirt with a pair of Stussy joggers for a neutral contrast of colour combined with ultimate comfort. When looking for trainers to go with the look, you have two choices. Stick with some textile/sporty styles such as Nike or New Balance. If you want to give your casual outfit a luxe feel, add a pair of Maison Margiela leather Replica trainers.

Dress up

If you thought you couldn’t dress up a sweatshirt for a night out, think again. There are many ways for you to make the sweatshirt a smart essential. In this case, the sweatshirt is enough to make a statement with the iconic Stone Island detachable badge. For a contemporary look, pair with some chino style trousers from Folk. The chinos combined with the sweatshirt create a relaxed silhouette, but still, give that smart element. When it comes to shoes, the Sneaker 1 in white by Grenson will complete the outfit perfectly with a full leather upper and casual lace-up fastening.

The North Face’s New SS18 Apparel Channels Classic Streetwear at its Finest

With a proven track record for making outerwear that’s as suited to the streets as it is to the mountains, it should come as no surprise that The North Face also create fantastic apparel that’s aimed more at the relaxed end of the market.

The ‘Fine’ range of jersey basics displays the same eye for vintage colour and detailing that’s made their jackets a success with tastemakers across the streetwear spectrum: excellent fabric choices like brushed cotton jersey and interlock sweat that feel both sturdy and luxuriously soft; comfort-oriented details like dropped hems, articulated elbows and underarm ventilation eyelets; and that iconic Half Dome box logo displayed to the sleeve in a way that’s distinctive yet inobtrusive.

The colour scheme also swerves the usual whites and navies, with Dark Teal and Vintage White proving just as versatile, yet different enough to stand out. Overall, it’s just very good stuff.

Consisting of long- and short-sleeved tees, a crewneck sweatshirt and a colour-blocked hoodie, The North Face ‘Fine’ apparel is all available from Aphrodite Clothing.

Stone Island Sweatshirts – Layer Up This Season

Stone Island Sweatshirts

Crafted by one of the world’s most iconic fashion houses, Stone Island Sweatshirts  have set the benchmark for quality and design in a contemporary and laid back look. With an illustrious history that chronicles one of the fashion industry’s greatest visionaries, Stone Island have become known as a key instigator in the development of fabrics, dying processes and design thanks to one man- Massimo Osti.

Stone Island Sweatshirt

Osti was widely viewed in the fashionable community as a garment engineer rather than a clothes designer, due to his view that his creations should be practical as well as stylish. His approach to making high fashion serviceable was completely unique- and resulted in the invention of crafting techniques, which at their time were considered outlandish, but now- thanks to his persistence and vision, are the norm.

From designing new materials that would ultimately give Stone Island the reputation as one of the most technically advanced brands on the planet, to overdyeing garments to give them a truly unparalleled colour effect, Stone Island transformed the way designers approached their products.

The spirit of modernism that Osti first instilled into Stone Island still lives on today; as the label continues its dominance in the field of men’s casual wear. With the renowned label delivering its promise of unassailable quality and durability under the banner of the iconic Stone Island compass badge, it is with the likes of Stone Island sweaters that the Italian born fashion house has mastered its craft, turning simple clean designs into instantly recognizable icons of their genre.
