As a plethora of new menswear items drop every week, what can we do except add more and more of the latest in fashion to our wishlists? (Or in the most fortunate of cases, to our shopping lists). Here are my personal top ten standout pieces of the week, five under £100 and five over.
Aaron baseball cap with A.P.C. logo, A.P.C.
This cap from Parisien label A.P.C. (Atelier de Production et de Création) looks like it could have come straight out of the middle of the 20th century. Sure to add some continental cool to your spring/summer wardrobe, it comes in both off white and black.
£80 via A.P.C.
Rose Logo Tee, Kenzo
Usually known for its loud, colourful designs, Kenzo seems to have broken their formula with this simplistic t-shirt. The embroidered rose and logo contrast beautifully in racing green against black cotton.
£99 via END.
Ireina Techno Belt Bag, Sergio Tacchini
A brand initially created by the eponymous Italian tennis player to give whitewashed tennis clothes a splash of creativity and colour, Sergio Tacchini has seen a revival in recent years. This understated belt bag bears the label’s iconic logo across the front and on the zippers.
£47 via Luisa Via Roma
X Off-White Tuxedo Cotton T-Shirt, Nike
After the success of their first collaboration, ‘The Ten’, one could argue when Nike and Off-White join forces, they form one of the greatest fashion collaborations of all time. This tuxedo t-shirt is perfect to cosplay Jason from ‘Us’, in the most stylish way possible.
£65 via Browns
Heaven & Hell L/S T-shirt, Maharishi
With designs on the arms created from prints by the Romanticist artist and poet, William Blake, this long sleeve t-shirt from London-based label Maharishi quite strikingly explores the concept of duality.
£65 via Harvey Nichols
Logo-Print PVC Tote Bag, Maison Margiela
A brand well known for its unconventional accessories, Maison Margiela joins the likes of Céline and Raf Simons in designing a PVC transparent tote bag. A slight upgrade from your usual plastic shopping bag, no doubt.
£350 via Mr Porter
Plaid cotton-blend flannel shirt, Amiri
If we look past the fact that Amiri seems to be a brand based entirely off SS16 Saint Laurent, with an added splash of colour here and there, we can appreciate that many of the LA label’s designs are actually refreshingly cool, like this multicolour flannel shirt.
£570 via Matchesfashion
Velvet-Trimmed Zebra-Print Stretch-Silk Satin Boxer Shorts, Tom Ford
Tom Ford has just released a range of silk accessories including ties, pocket squares, and underwear. However, nothing quite takes the cake like these pink tiger print velvet lined, silken boxer shorts; surely the epitome of luxury?
£250 via Mr Porter
Brown Convertible Deer Print Backpack, Burberry
Believe it or not, these two images are of the very same bag, albeit in its two forms, hence the ‘convertible’ in its name. There’s a handy picture of a deer at the top of the bag in its backpack form, in case you couldn’t tell which animal lends its likeness to the nylon twill outer.
£615 via SSENSE
Monogram Print Baseball Cap, Burberry
Covered all over in Ricardo Tisci’s new TB monogram for Burberry, This baseball cap doesn’t have a strap at the back like most, but instead a pretty bow, making it wonderfully unique.
£341 via HBX
