Libertine-Libertine



Libertine-Libertine effortlessly blends streetwear and high fashion with a skate vibe for the savvy, modern man. Creating a new sense of sophisticated hedonism, the spring/summer 2015 collection mixes tailoring with a subtle sense of utilitarianism and colour block to form a modern-classic hybrid of sleek constructed shapes and relaxed streetwear, inspired by the late 70s LA skate scene.
 
A collection for the grown-up skaters, a predominant bright white and deep navy colour palette is submerged with injections of red and bursts of patterns, creating a sense of vitality. Classic shapes are remixed, employing a variety of textures and sport-tech fabrics, as seen within a reinvention of the bomber and top-coat shapes with printed shorts and shirt sets, cropped jersey loungewear and woven tees designed with Danish detail.


Todd Snyder x Champion



Having learned at an early age that an interest in fashion was a good way to get attention from girls – unable to play the guitar, Todd Snyder decided the secret was that he would dress better than everyone else. And for this Iowa native, that’s how it all started. Having spent the last two decades honing skills as a designer in NYC, Todd Snyder has worked for some of the very best names across menswear – including designing outerwear at Polo Ralph Lauren and as SVP at J. Crew, where collaborations with Timex, Red Wing, Thomas Mason, and Alden re-energised its menswear offering.
 
In 2011 Todd Snyder launched his namesake label and developed a fervent following in both the United States and Japan. With an unrivalled ability to spot and revive classic labels, he has now turned his attention to collaborating with American sportswear brand Champion. Smart and unpretentious, the line mixes military and vintage in a modern, relevant, fresh way, with pieces including everything from knits to tailored clothing. High-quality jersey sportswear is given a modern edge, as the collection centres on Champion’s patented classic reverse weave sweatshirt, capturing the iconic history of the brand whilst utilising Snyder’s expert eye for fit and contemporary silhouette.


Garment Project



Designer Kent Madsen's personal Scandinavian style combines with a refined trend-focused aesthetic to create Garment Project. The spring/summer 2015 range resonates within a neutral colour scheme, introducing a new marble sole, shapes and fabric mixes to the collection.
 
Madsen integrates experience and technical knowledge gained from time spent in the industry working at Nike, placing emphasis on the construction of every shoe, never losing sight of the goal to achieve maximum comfort and wearability. With a broad assortment of colours, leather and sole options, a tailor made collection can be made for each individual, allowing a completely unique experience with Garment Project. 


Still Good



French designer Clement Taverniti launched his up-and-coming line Still Good in 2012. Believing he has just always been living in this fashion world, Taverniti has been involved within the fashion industry since childhood, with his father having designed his own eponymous in Southern France.
 
Inspired by an alumni of brands, after stints at Kitsune, Dries Van Noten and Homecore, Still Good passionately creates clothes that are made to be casually worn, while providing a sense of style and self-confidence. Mixing urban and luxury culture, the collection doesn't buy into trends, but instead embraces the idea that you should wear what you want, simply because you like it. For spring/summer 2015, the fledgling label is both sophisticated and relaxed in design – street and high-end, luxury culture combine, channelling a refreshing approach with an astute attention to detail, placing Still Good at the top of emerging brands.


Trophy Athletics


Trophy Athletics is not a statement. The brand is not trying to revive the American economy or wave a flag of patriotism. It’s not attempting to subscribe to any doctrine of pride or nostalgia, but declare itself as an American brand with global appeal. Recognising the value of American manufacturing, Trophy Athletics chooses to source from its own backyard, with the knowledge America still incubates entrepreneurialism, quality and creativity and in turn becomes a product of that spirit. The brand sources premium cotton from its native North Carolina, creating garments in local factories to ensure the highest levels of quality control and superior production. This effort is literally woven into every garment.

As a devout believer in American athletic apparel and the shoulders of champions garments have been carried upon, Trophy Athletics offers exceptional apparel, with no expense spared, American sportswear of yesterday, revisited with tradition echoing through the halls of today.
