Goodmorning! It’s Sunday! We’re staying indoors for some recovery shopping. To be more specific: The collection for fall/winter 2012; ‘Recover’ by YOUASME.COM is on top of our list.
“Now more than ever we are looking for special products that tell a story so we can actually relate to them.
Things that we can cherish, that warm us and embrace us, give us shelter, inspired by the way vagabonds carry with them everything they need.” Youasme, 2012. ‘Recover’ Collection fall/winter 2012 Photography: Blommers/Schumm Styling: Lidewij Merckx Models: Anine @ Paparazzi, Vic @ Ulla Models
Since Summer won’t break through in The Netherlands it’s time to focus on Fall 2012. In particular the menswear collections. Our favorite are the boys from Watanabe, or rather the clothing they wear. (The cutest guy is the Woolrich model, for sure! *_*.) For Summer 2012 Watanabe already promised us men in worker(manual labor)clothes. Actually, in the Netherlands they can’t be found, but that’s probably because we don’t have Summer as such in this country. Okay, enough chit-chat about the weather: This, Fall 2013, season more designers visualize manual-labor-worker-looks in some sort of form.
Pockets at Watanabe and at Woolrich Woolen Mills.
Grey tweed with contrasting brown, Watanabe andat Carven.
More Watanabe because it’s so perfect.

The dandies come along for this season as well. In different forms. The plain ones in the immaculate suit (no photo’s, you know the drill, you’ll find out about the silhouette, we know you can!) The dandy at Comme des Garcons, a sloane rebel. And we have the dandy from the non-western cultures.
At Kenzo and Comme des Garcons

Damir Doma. With stars at Givenchy.
A little sidestep: No Dandies, nor tribal but with stars (and nose-ring) at Givenchy and Vivienne Westwood. Spotlights at Bottega Veneta and Sapeurs at Walter van Beirendonck.
We’re sure there are many more, retro or other usual suspected trends. For us, these were the most interesting. As they should be for you!
