BAND OF OUTSIDERS

may 018

London based clothing label Band of Outsiders founded in Los Angeles has grown from a tiny operation designing men’s shirts and ties to now producing full men’s line.

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-by-jessie-lilly-adams-for-Band-of-Outsiders-spring-summer-2018-collection-model-Adam-Holden-3.jpg
 

A favourite among A-List celebrities and influencers such as: Chadwick Boseman, Dave Franco, and Fabian Lück more. Americana-inspired brand provides ‘classics with a twist’
generating a cult following for their impeccably cut trousers and unique prints.

The brand is now stocked at iconic stockists worldwide such as: Le Bon Marche in Paris, Fred Segal in LA and KaDeWe in Berlin.

For s+s 018 the brand have continued their nonchalant tailoring but reworking the brand’s new cropped take on classic staples for this collection. Key inspirations in the collections are workwear, maritime and the films of Jacques Tati.

The collection brings together a complete wardrobe, playfully embracing this season’s themes, with rough cotton twills, iconic Breton stripes and Tati’s ‘droll’ attitude. Details include triple stitched seams and slanted patch pockets. Naval prints feature heavily, from ‘the wave’ to the ‘killer shark’ and the ‘smelly cat’.

Ship-life concept pieces, such as lifejackets and parkas, are redesigned for every day wear. This season Band of Outsiders are delighted to work with Woolmark's newest innovation ‘Lightweight Denim Wool’, that further accentuates the collection’s workwear feel in texture and wearability.

 a play on the anatomy of tailoring


may 018

Composed of actual blazers and trousers, the AW/18 shoe collection truly embodies tailoring materials and forms. Blazer patterns are highly recognisable in the sleeves boots where the original shoulder now hides the knee.

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-A.F.Vandevorst-AutumnWinter-2018-Shoe-Campaign_16.jpg
 

Trousers patterns can be found in motor and army trousers high boots and lined dinner trousers boots. Other ‘sleeve’ boots are made from Japanese Sukajan jackets, with unique embroidered patches.

The collection’s sneaker further explores the theme of dissection - consciously cut up and re-ensembled. And per A.F.Vandevorst tradition, the marriage of opposites returns in multiple pairings, such as the delicately woven jacquard boot with its masculine shape and the fragile semi-naked heel with its solid frame.

LIP
a new movement has taken form


may 018

LIP stands for Live in the Present: A philosophy at the core of all existence, one we know and feel. Merging the now with art and design, a constant reminder to experience every moment as if it is your last. 

 
Le-Mile-Magazine-LIP-Label-Shoes-Sneakers-2018-1.jpg
 

Constructed with an edge, yet rooted in subtlety. LIP design for those who are inspired by existence, “Being present-minded takes away some of that self-evaluation and getting lost in your mind—and in the mind is where we make the evaluations that beat us up [...] When people are mindful, they’re more likely to experience themselves as part of humanity, as part of a greater universe.

LIP stands for contemporary sneakers dressed in premium Italian leather. The clean lines and neutral colors promise wearing an extra touch of luxury and comfort with each step you take.

'With this chapter in the series I want the world to know that there are two families, both that mean the world to me – two sides to my story. So that’s what this is – a message of love and pride to my family and the people of Ghana.’

Burberry reveals the third portfolio in a series of images by Adwoa Aboah and Juergen Teller. To date, Adwoa has been photographed in London, where she was born, and in New York, where she currently lives, capturing candid moments with her family and friends. The third chapter, shot in Ghana, marks the continuation of this journey and celebrates Adwoa’s West African heritage. Adwoa art-directed the shoot and cast her friend British model Sonny Hall to feature alongside her in the campaign, shot on location around her family home in Accra, Ghana.

I tried very hard not to be too emotional about this trip, but it’s so special for everyone to see where the story started. To be in Ghana means coming home. I’ve been able to bring close friends of mine here, and my grandma and my family have had a taste of what the other part of my life is like’, says Adwoa Aboah. 

The images introduce Burberry’s Autumn Winter 2018 Pre-Collection featuring layered silhouettes, a vibrant
collision of prints, graffiti scribbles, checks and colours across knitwear, coats, suits and accessories.
Also featured are new styles of The Belt Bag introduced in canvas, new colours and a smaller size. Medium and
small-sized bags can now be personalised with a variety of interchangeable belts in six new colors. 

Accompanying the campaign is a set of intimate images of Adwoa with her Ghanaian relatives including her grandmother Gladys Aboah, great-auntie Mary Asare, cousin Kensemaa Aboah and her auntie Tina (Ernestina Aboah), who also designed one-off outfits made from the Burberry Vintage check especially for this occasion.

MARVAIS
moved by passion


may 018

Marvais is founded by the two best friends Marie Libeert and Valérie Vanermen, who left their jobs to devote themselves to their passion. After, respectively, a career as brand manager and interior designer, Marie and Valerie decided it was time for them to start their own project. Launching their very own handbag label MARVAIS, resulting from a lack of timeless models with a surprising nod.  

 
LE-MILE-Magazine-MARVAIS_spring-summer-2018-collection-2.jpg
 

Elegant and discreet with a surprising yet subtle touch. This is how one could describe the Marvais style. At Marvais, everything originates from the fabric and then evolves into a timeless cut with an original touch. With this first collection, the designer duo wishes to offer timeless bags made of high quality leather that embellishes with age. The starting point for this first collection is unworked, natural leather, tanned and coloured to suit each individual design.

After one year and half of research, Marie and Valerie arrived at a renowned tannery working for famous houses like Louis Vuitton and Delvaux. The collection was built around a top-quality vegetable tanned calfskin leather, which gets an original patina over time. Smooth, high-quality calfskin leather is subjected to a 100% vegetable process without chromium. The leather is then dyed in a colour developed by Marvais. This process takes six weeks, until the leather is finished and ready to be assembled into a bag. Each piece is then manufactured by hand in a renowned atelier in Tunisia. The bag interiors comprise a suede finish in contrasting colour.

Marie and Valerie conceive their creations hand-in-hand, without following current trends. They need little words to understand each other. Their designs start from a visceral feeling. Each design grows organically, and each bag is a decision made by mutual agreement. The collection and the brand strives for timeless models with a surprising yet modest touch. No unnecessary fringes, opaque details or prominent logo but a sophisticated collection that can fit with any wardrobe.

COS TO PRESENT SOMA, A CAPSULE MENSWEAR COLLECTION AND PERFORMANCE CHOREOGRAPHED BY WAYNE McGREGOR AT PITTI UOMO 94.

COS, the London-based fashion brand, is pleased to announce that it will present Soma, a capsule collection of menswear essentials in the form of choreographed art at the 94th edition of Pitti Uomo this June.

Known for its modern and functional garments inspired by the worlds of art and design, the COS x Pitti Uomo event will take shape by way of a choreographed performance conceived by British choreographer Wayne McGregor, in celebration of the capsule collection’s form and function. ‘For COS, Pitti Uomo celebrates creativity, craftsmanship and forward-thinking menswear. It is an honour to present Soma in Florence and we are equally excited to be able to share the work with a wider audience internationally online’, stated Karin Gustafsson, COS Creative Director. 

Soma will encapsulate the core COS aesthetic and values, using traditional methods and new techniques to form an understated collection that celebrates timeless everyday pieces. Christophe Copin, newly appointed COS Head of Menswear explained, ‘Soma really explores what essential menswear means for us at COS and every detail has been designed with the movement of the wearer in mind.  

We are delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with Wayne McGregor and his company of dancers to bring the directional movement and fluidity of the menswear collection and its inspirations to life’. 

Wayne McGregor will put the collection into movement by focusing on the routine subtle gestures associated with menswear. ‘Playfully exploring the COS collection with a mindfulness and fresh awareness of the wearer, we will create a specifically commissioned work by subverting these everyday gestures alongside the designs. We will appropriate everyday movement and transform it into new fictions, as Company Wayne McGregor dancers inhabit the COS collection infused by their own individual physical signatures’, McGregor explained. ‘We are happy that COS, an icon of style and model of high quality accessibility, has chosen Pitti Uomo 94 for the launching of its new men’s project’, declares Raffaello Napoleone, Pitti Immagine CEO. ‘Florence has once again demonstrated itself to be the ideal stage for international events of great impact’. 

The performance will be livestreamed on cosstores.com. Following which, the collection will be available to buy in the COS Florence store at Via della Spada, 1 and online internationally on all COS ecommerce sites in Europe, USA and South Korea. COS has an established legacy of artistic collaborations, but Soma marks its first foray into dance or choreographed art.
