If there is to be one person responsible for raising the bar for men’s collections this week, then we take our hat’s off to designer Phillip Lim. He has taken traditional elements of clothing for men and created comfort-wear with an immense sense of style. This collection is definitely for men seeking style and originality. We are so digging the rockabilly twist to this collection! The beauty of this collection is that you can tap into your existing wardrobe and mix and match as you see fit.

Nothing new to the catwalk but the texture, colours and design just look funky, edgy and damn right cool. Team it with an existing black top from your wardrobe and you have an up to dated look for 2013.
From a bomber style to large or fitted jackets. One thing is for sure; it’s all in the detail. The angular cuts and usage of zips is why these jackets are going to fly off the shelf. Very wearable indeed and oozes comfort.
Loving the shoes
Whether you choose the bold, black and white or the subtle blues, you’ll start a trend for breaking the boundaries of casual wear for the high street. Again just choose a complimentary top or bottom to balance the look.
This is taking the traditional gorgeous fabric to a whole new level. The detail in these jackets states pure elegance and would look great with anything including; chinos, jeans and cuff trousers.
How wicked are these trousers? I’m thinking the stylish rider would look awesome in these.
