This week, we have a collection of goods from De Bonne Facture, Reigning Champ, and Studio D’Artisan that express an understated elegance through modern, casual styles made with traditional craftsmanship and soul. As we re-organize and settle into a hectic world that is becoming increasingly remote, it’s crucial to have tangible connections while finding comfort in garments that allow us to embrace life. As old challenges dissolve and new tests present themselves, a minimalist style cuts the noise and allows an individual’s dynamic character to be brought to the fore, enabling us to meet the day with fortitude. While we are always looking for ways to enhance, there is something to be said for editing garments down to a brilliant, clean, and classic aesthetic that meets our needs from work to leisure with sophisticated simplicity.
Always honored to work with Deborah Neuberg of De Bonne Facture, we hallmark a project from last year with two core collaborations that are iconic, sartorial, simple, modern, and hyper functional for all-season utility in today’s lifestyle. As sourcing all natural fibers and transparent production are at the core identity of the DBF process, the Work Jacket and our City Parka utilize a completely PFC-free Ventile® made from organic cotton, with an environmentally conscious finish that performs remarkably in the rain while evolving and casually draping to the wearer as a waterproof, breathable, durable, and dynamically stylish staple.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a proper Reigning Champ release and for all your lounge to active lifestyle needs, we bring a barrage of core classics with several new seasonal colors. Dialed in with precision using their signature French terry, the Full Zip Hoodie and Crewneck Sweater use complex patterns to result in clean cuts and premium details, while the Slim and Cuffed Sweatpants have a comfortable, contemporary silhouette. Either to be used as daily staple separates or full sweatsuits, these pieces blur the lines between fashion and lifestyle with a casual luxury that reads effortlessly stylish.
While Studio D’Artisan often represents our purist penchants for loomstate denim, we also have a deep appreciation for artisan distressed and washed jeans that are immediately comfortable, stylish, and truly special. Perfectly timed for warmer weather with a worn-in feel and an accommodative and modern fit, the SDA Relaxed Tapered Ivy D1826US in Washed Indigo and Washed Black are back. These hand finished, wearable collectables are essential for an elevated modern wardrobe, staying true to all the principles around longevity and style we hold near and dear.
