I was over the moon when I discovered Anzevino + Bob Mizer, a capsule collection made in collaboration between Anzevino and the Bob Mizer Foundation. The collection includes an assortment of t-shirts featuring erotic portraiture by Bob Mizer.
Erotic photography is, without doubt, an incredible art, and there’s no doubt that Bob Mizer did it flawlessly. Each image is sublime and, despite not previously being a huge fan of erotic photography when slapped across a t-shirt, the Anzevino + Bob Mizer collection is definitely something I’d like to invest in, and you should probably do the same!

The Spring/Summer 2013 collection from Ukrainian youth clothing brand X’U, founded by designer Ksenia Marchenko, is a cool, playful sight. A fun palette of black, white, yellow, pink, blue, red and metallic adorns numerous sleeveless dresses, with stripes dominating the collection, while printed t-shirts and sweatshirts give the collection a versatile twist.
If you’re young and even slightly cool, you’ve got to get your hands on some pieces from X’U.
You can view and purchase the full collection through Hako.

My most recent contribution towards DressLab is a piece covering last week’s London Collections: Men. The piece highlights five designers who presented their Spring/Summer 2014 collections that exude Britishness, including Shaun Samson and Joseph Turvey, just to name a couple. I’m quite proud of this piece, so it’d be great if you could check it out!
Ksenia Schnaider’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, “Bodywarmer”, as expressed in a previous rambling, is my favourite collection of theirs yet. On that note, I was delighted to see that Ksenia and Anton, the duo behind the brand, decided to put together an enticing presentation that outlines the inspiration behind the collection and what the duo aim to achieve with it. The presentation is then pulled together with some great images from Ksenia Schnaider’s Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign, which was shot by the very talented Yulia Zhdan.
You can view the full presentation through Readymag.

White Tent is a brand known for its functional, versatile designs, as well as its devotion to eco-luxe. This admirable trait continues with this fantastic unisex top, made from Japanese linen and cotton. The design is simple and clean, featuring just a small breast pocket and a boat neck-line with triangular insets at the shoulders, which gives it a structured finished.
If you want to own a piece of White Tent, I think this top’s the perfect investment piece. The colour allows for all-year-round wear and the top can be paired with pretty much anything, from a simple pair of black shorts to a pleated skirt, or even some tailored trousers. White Tent certainly hit the term “unisex” right on the head with this piece!

Graduating from UCA Rochester in 2010, Chelsea Bravo is a London-based menswear designer. Shortly after she graduated, Chelsea interned with menswear designers, Christopher Shannon and Martine Rose before launching her own brand, through which she aims to “articulate a refreshing approach to modern menswear through fusing creative cutting techniques with traditional menswear details and streetwear influences”.
Chelsea’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, “Dysfunction”, was inspired by her desire to create a collection that would show progression. The collection is minimal, sophisticated and subtly futuristic. Other influences come from architecture and geometric shape, as well as from what Chelsea describes as “hidden emotional pain”. Throughout there are light references to Central African and Muslim dress in the silhouette, with a subtle palette of beige, cream, grey, white and metallic coated cotton emphasising this minor influence. The collection is simple but thought provoking, and I can’t wait to see what Chelsea’s next collection will bring!

Words cannot explain my love for this hat from Études‘ Spring/Summer 2013 collection. It’s subtle orange tone and heavy wool structure make my heart beat faster than normal. I’m certain that if I were going to invest in a hat for the summer months, this would definitely be the one!
