Introducing Burton Menswear SS16

Introducing Burton Menswear SS16

For SS16 Burton has created the ultimate spring collection. Essential wardrobe builders and timeless pieces designed for the unpretentious, uncomplicated yet stylish man. The story begins with tailoring. For summer occasion or summer business, Burton suiting is second to none. Three super 100 Italian weave suits in navy, grey and slate showcase the luxury offering in their formal line. Light to the touch, the high quality natural fabric offers the perfect antidote to office days spent in the summer sun. For weekends and events, a pale blue suit worn tieless with a yellow shirt and a range of linen suiting in natural hues creates further relaxed options.

Off-duty sophistication comes via the fresh and minimal ‘Loft’ trend. Contemporary and smart, the range comes with clean Scandinavian lines and airy simplicity. A light-infused colour palette of powder blue, rosewood, light grey and white add to the feeling of ease. Hero items such as a textured white t-shirt, lightweight waffle knit jumper and a dove grey bomber jacket provide the dress-down options. Whilst blazer separates in sand, chambray and the occasional darker hue of slate and navy are more work-day friendly. Coordinate dressing is key, a charcoal marl safari jacket comes with matching trousers and shorts, with an option in navy blue providing the colour block version.

Utility sets the scene for casualwear where classic design meets colour and print creating an effortless and wearable aesthetic. Here we find the staples of menswear such as the Harrington, navy utility jacket and longline fleck knit presented in stone, coco and khaki with shots of moss, indigo and red spice. Layering and print clash adds interest; a checked shirt is worn over an all-over print t-shirt, whilst a dark chambray leaf print shirt is worn with a short-sleeved grandad tee.

Is Hedi Slimane Leaving Saint Laurent for Dior or Chanel?

Visit the original post to see all 1 images from this gallery.

As usual Paris Fashion Week was not only busy due to all the shows, but the rumor mill also kept press, designers and other spectators on their toes. Next to Raf Simons making a possible move to Calvin Klein in the near future, rumors about a possible departure of Hedi Slimane from Saint Laurent were among the most talked about. Why the designer would be leaving Saint Laurent after having so successfully turned the brand around is not clear, but the main reason for the rumors to come up in the first place was the cancelation of the Saint Laurent show in Paris and the announcement that it would take place in Los Angeles instead.

If Slimane would leave YSL, then only for something better or bigger. What else is there? Raf Simons just left Dior, that could be an interesting move for Slimane. He has pretty much single handedly build up Dior Homme over a decade ago and would return to take over the entire brand. The other big speculation is Chanel. Of course Karl Lagerfeld is not going anywhere for now, but he is not the youngest anymore and he will for sure be looking around already for a suitable successor. It is known that Lagerfeld has a lot of respect for Slimane, so this could be an interesting move as well.

None of the brands has commented on any of these rumors yet, but with the women’s shows just around the corner, Dior and Lanvin will certainly need to announce something. Hopefully we know more soon.

Designer Phillip Lim attempts to imagine a world where men embody modern luxury with a Fall/Winter 2016 collection dubbed “Global Citizen.” The evocative range is chock-full of urban silhouettes that exude poise. From quilted MA-1 jackets adorned with knitted motifs to leopard-print overcoats, Lim’s new offerings combine wit and humor with a steadfast attention to detail.

Describing his new collection as “youthful elegance,” Lim proves he can cater to any and all demographics, making items that find a balance between overly playful and excessively sophisticated.

To get a better idea of his aesthetic, take a tour of Lim’s New York City loft.

Watch These Surfers Take on the Freezing Cold Waters of Iceland

Generally when thinking of surfing, our minds are directed to warm, tropical locations with sandy beaches and the sun shining down on us. Recently, however, O’Neill Benelux team rider Dominga Valde and four of the best Dutch and Belgian surfers aimed at getting away from such overcrowded and more popular surfing areas and trying something a bit different.

For this, the team set off for Iceland and its freezing cold waters to find perfection. With wet-suits on their backs, the above video showcases just how much fun this collective of surfers had while taking on Iceland’s frigid temperatures.

For some other great surfing footage, check out Nic von Rupp and company recently shredding waves in Portugal, Ireland and the Canaries.
