Libertine-Libertine, a Danish brand I keep hearing about of late. They’re really making waves around the male clothing scene. Even though they only launched in 2009 they have built a strong reputation for their simple and clean apparels. Through searching Europe for the best mills they have managed to build a brand based on quality, class and timelessness.
Their Autumn/Winter ’16 lookbook really displays their brand image whilst also ensuring they keep up with the most current trends making waves in the male fashion space.
Set on an autumnal backdrop of rusty brown; they really give focus to their clean cut garments. They’ve shown how to classically and casually layer that Autumn Winter wardrobe.
This ‘Pinnacle Boucle Overshirt Jacket’ or Shacket (shirt jacket) is great for those days where the mornings are cold and you can you see your own breath but then by dinner time, you can dine al-fresco (well, sort of). As you can see from the lookbook image it’s paired nicely with the same off-black trousers and some platform-esque trainers; not forgetting the denim shirt which does subtle but great job of breaking up the dark colours.
Is winter really winter without a new mac? I always opt for a dark coat, whether it navy, black or a dark khaki. Last year saw the rise of the camel coloured over coat but after weeks of searching I couldn’t find one that was very me; they were either oversized and too casual or they were slightly too old looking and suited a much more mature gent. This however is right up my street; it’s classic enough to be smart but could definitely be paired with a crisp white tee, some knee-ripped light denim jeans and a clean pair of white trainers.
My love affair with bomber jackets continues. This wool-blend jacket is really perfect for these autumn months. It’s clean, it’s modern yet almost timeless really feeding into the clean and minimalistic brand values. The neutral/stone colourway allows for unlimited pairing options thus making it an essential staple in any guys wardrobe. I’d personally pair it will a similarly light tee and combine the light colouring of the top half with a more dark bottom half, most probabaly with a pair of navy denim jeans.
All these items and so many more are available through the John Lewis website – well that’s where I found them anyway!
