Smith-Wykes Spring/Summer 2014 collection

July 17, 2013

With the influence of “an outsiders perspective on Japanese design as seen through 1960‘s film, fashion and architecture'”, comes the latest collection from Smith-Wykes. I love the way this label does things and this is their best collection to date.

Whereas the upcoming Autumn/Winter collection is a display of dusty pinks and various tones of green, this one has golden hues at its core. These are contrasted with light grey and navy blue, plus an array of geometric prints, created with the help of London’s Studio Small and inspired by Japanese hand-carved woodblock prints and kimono stitch-craft.

Fabrication is as beautiful as ever, with a mix of slub cotton and linen used in shirts and tailored trousers, raw denim jeans, technical nylons utilised in lightweight outerwear and fine wools present in textured crew neck jumpers. And it’s these sharply cut staples that these guys do so well – simple lines, great detailing and perfect construction.

For more information on the brand and to see their soon to be released collection for Autumn/Winter 2013, go to their website here: Smith-Wykes.

    Their stuff looks really decent, I see they used Hemmingway Hush Puppy shoes too.
