This week's dose of inspiration for upcoming spring and summer comes from England - by one of my persona favorite brands Drake's London.
For the season Drake's has come up with a look book that features all together 12 classical sketches made by Tokyo based illustrator, Akira Sorimachi.
The illustrations are all loosely assembled around the idea of €˜travel and relaxation'. All the pieces featured in these sketches can also be found in spring and summer €˜15 collection by the company - including new models of Alden loafers, cotton slacks in two different colors, Drake's - made in Italy - light weight and relaxed tailored jackets, high-quality shirting and, naturally, ties, pocket squares and scarves. Even though one can not see the textures or materials - these illustrations are once again a really good way to practice and learn about color combining and how to easily create a look that is classic yet modern and most of all aesthetically pleasing.
