In one more day summer will be over, which means that the days will get shorter, the nights will get longer, and the weather will get colder.  An added benefit of this seasonal change is that we can go back to layering pieces once again.  Don’t take it the wrong way, I love my summer days of wearing absolutely nothing but shorts, but having an oxford with a camel colored crew-neck sweater and a jacket on top makes my heart warm.

As far as jackets go Henri Lloyd has done it again with their Barton Button. What I enjoy about the brand is that obviously fashion is important to them, but so is being practical. The dark navy outer lambswool is the perfect color for fall, but will also keep you warm when you’re running those holiday errands

Check out the Barton Button or more looks at Henri Lloyd.

Lookbook’s should be food for the eyes. Actual Pain knows this and has offered a buffet of looks for their Fall+ Winter 2010 collection. It’s a mix of tank tops, sweaters, t-shirts,  and light weight jackets that are perfect for summer, especially summer in Atlanta.

Nike. Adidas. Converse. For the past decades sneakers have been a staple in American fashion as much as white t-shirts and blue jeans. Just like apple pie, everyone in America had a pair and wore them with pride. The past couple of years have seen an influx of sneakers hitting our closets; partly because of the retro 80’s comeback and partly because the design aspect of creating “high fashion” sneakers have exploded. Although, sneakers will not be leaving the American mindset anytime soon there is a new revolution appearing in the way of dress shoes.

The word “dress shoe” brings to mind boring church services or never ending weddings, but this post is focusing on brogues and wingtips. Brogues are low heeled, leather bound shoes that originate from Ireland. They are often viewed as the country man’s shoes and are less formal than their counterpart: the oxford. Nonetheless compared to sneakers, they are screaming high-class. The colors are often limited to all black, a light chestnut color, and an almost chocolate brown. The name wingtips come from the “W” design that appears on the tip of some brogues.

I think the lookbook and the fashion describes itself.

All brown everything.

The suits are coming! No, I’m not talking about Wall Street “Suits”; I’m talking about formal suits. To follow trends is to be a follower, but to see future trends is to be a trendsetter. It appears that all things are headed to men wearing full blown suits and the great thing is that it doesn’t require an invitation to a wedding. Tom Ford’s Fall+Winter collection shows that suits don’t have to have negative connotations of being snobby. They can be worn playfully with pieces of velvet thrown into the mix.

Fashion label, Nom de Guerre–translates to “war names”–, have taken their name seriously with their Fall and Winter collection. Their lookbook named “Countdown to Violence” has a deep militaristic theme, as well as a slight  “black power” undertone. The collection is filled with form fitting blazers and suits that seems to be paletted in all black.

It’s not everyday that you see fashion being inspired by hunters, but then again, in the age that we live in creativity can be inspired by any and everything. Only the Japanese brand could make the Elmer Fudd’s in the world feel cool. The collection is filled with that forest pattern, skinny jeans, cardigans, oversized sweaters, and mountain boots.

Instead of making two separate posts about the same design, I decided to integrate the two. Y-3 has always been one of my favorite brands. They always seem to be on the curve of fashion, but at the same time not going overboard. The picture above is from the Hayworth Hi Collection and the pictures after the jump is from the Metallic Neo Tech Collection.

I am most impressed by the presentations of the shoes.

Fall is nowhere near, but it’s always inspiring to see new looks. Here is Japanese’s own Original Fake’s lookbook for Fall+Winter. Although the colors aren’t vibrant, which you wouldn’t expect from a fall line, the design is so crisp and clean that it brings light Brian Donnelly’s vision.
