Everyone is heading back to school, nights are slowly getting chillier and the afternoons are not as scorching as they used to! Only one thing we can put this on, which is the rise of Fall. My utmost favourite time of the year. Not only because I hate the heat but the style is given a chance to breathe and express its in a more articulate way. North Face is known to be the go to brand when wanting to pic up gear for the F/W season it never fails you know it I know it it’s a given. However take the North Face brand and give it a face that is more slim, more tonal, more experimental, and overall different taste in aesthetic. And what you get is North Face Purple Label. Their F/W 2014 looks are killer and if you don’t believe me take a peak for yourself.
Father’s day is a few days away, and I bet you probably didn’t even know it. Pft I know I didn’t! But really it’s never too late to try and get your father a little something on his special day. There so much hoopla and rubbish on todays market its harder to really find the small gems that can make a great gift. Go with a classic style / silhouette is what I always recommend with just about everything. You really can never go wrong.
The Derek Cardigan Sunglasses have the real classic silhouette and feel that any father can pull off. What’s great about these glasses / giveaway is the Clearly Contacts will add a prescription to the winner of these sunglasses if need be. So if you’re blind as a bat and would like a pair, we have a solution.

The title should say it all on how I’m feeling about Sawa Takai’s F/W 2013 lookbook. Sawa is a designer based in New York, she studied at F.I.T and graduated in 2010. Her garments are all produced in Japan, it is evident that designs are heavily influenced by menswear. Coincidentally enough when I came across her F/W collection it reminded me a lot of Engineered garments, specifically their F/W collection that I shared at the top of the season. See the influence? It turns out that Sawa has past work experiences with Engineered Garments in New York (good eye Spencer good eye).
Her pieces show a great attention to detailing and reinforcement techniques while working with Engineered Garments. Sawa Takai is a designer to keep your eye on without a doubt.
Sawa Takai explores deliberate layering through addition and subtraction. Engineered melton wool double-paneling functions as protective sheaths symbolizing strength and concealment. These heavy layers are contrasted by removed panels and split seams in soft flannel revealing interior linings and representing vulnerability and exposure. Together these themes play on Takai’s reflections on metropolitan women who must preserve their inner tenderness while projecting strength to the world to survive.
