L.B.M 1911 S/S 2014

When it comes to the L.B.M. 1911 spring and summer collection by Italian Lubiam, the company remains committed to its high quality standards and continues to be innovative in its ongoing research of new fabrics and treatments. As seen in the look book, blazers and sport coats for this season come in a variety of fabrics, dying treatments and patterns. The collection skillfully combines elegance and sophistication and as the look book proves, the collection also provides perfect balance between smart, chic and casual. And as usual, everything is very softly tailored, keeping the construction as light as possible. The collection also features lots of bold patterns (as also typical for the brand). There’s floral and geometric motifs printed on the reverse...

Loro Piana S/S 2014

Lasts summer the news was that Italian Loro Piana had decided to sell a majority stake in the business to Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton LVMH and the sale was finally completed last December. Another breaking news regarding the brand was published in December when it was announced that Mr Sergio Loro Piana, one of two brothers that took over the business after their father in the 1970s, and who continued to develop the brand and really expanded it into the luxury retail markets, had passed away at the age of 65. S/S ´14 I’ve said it before, personally I'm a big fan of the company and their overall aesthetics, but especially fond of their look books featuring beautiful and most inspiring illustrations. Field jackets, suede...
