FALL/WINTER 2014 BOOMERANG WEEKEND HIDEAWAY





In the Autumn ´14 Womens- and Mens collections Boomerang have chosen to set classic

against modern influences. Well behaved cuts in rebel colours and smart

high-tech fabrics next to traditional natural fabrics.

 

The women's collection includes luxury mohair- shirts and quilted lumber jackets, sailing sweaters in merino wool, maxi cardigans in bouclé and classic white shirts. Featuring sporty crewnecks appearing on dresses, shirts and knits, and a wealth of luxury, tailored jersey garments, mixed with simple, comfortable family favourites. Inspired by the classic ski resorts of Gstaad and St: Moritz: offering a timeless sporty elegance, interpreted for the here and now!

 

On the men's side they see checked shirts in twill and wool roll-necks. The updated down parka and grey denim, finds the excitement lies in the contrast, the unexpected and tantalizing. Colours range from creamy panna cotta and smoky blue to a bold bright red and sober midnight blue.

 

The silhouette is slim-tailored, accessorised and accented with leather gloves and sweeping scarves in soft wool. But Boomerang is not just about the exterior. When they started almost 40 years ago, they understood understated fashion, creating impact through quality materials and raw materials, elaborate details and a sort of natural simplicity. As part of the same philosophy, ‘The Boomerang Effect’ was, and still remains about sustainability and the eternal cycle. ‘The Effect’ means that you can give older Boomerang garments back to their stores.

 

In return this provides discount on new garments - which then after years of use are given the chance to live on through Boomerang Vintage , or perhaps re-used in the Boomerang Home Collection.  The Boomerang Effect is genuine validation of the high quality and durability in their products.

 

Boomerang’s first UK Store is at 7 West Street, Farnham, Surrey. Tel: 01252 725200

 



4 OF THE BEST PEACOATS ....

For me every man should have a peacoat in his wardrobe .... why? they are future classics, future vintage and future everything... they are one piece of clothing that never dates if the right one is bought ... I'm in the market for one as the one I had from Ungaro was taken by mistake in a cloakroom by someone else otherwise it would still be going strong.... here's a look of a few of my favourites which I believe will stand the test of time


1) Balmain


Number one had to be Balmain its the stylish option ... A bit more pricey but for the ultimate Fashionisto ... It's a wool blend with leather trim and a quilted cotton lining

Priced at £1,760

2) PS by Paul Smith

A bit more practical and and pocket friendly coming in at £430 also a wool blend which contains a touch of cashmere

Priced at £595

Burberry London Slim-Fit Wool-Blend Peacoat

4) Valentino

This is the show off, great Italian Craftmanship and how a peacoat should look ...The gold anchor buttons on this Valentino sets it apart from the others .... as Italians would say this is Stupendo! (amazing)

Priced at £1,490


Valentino Double-Breasted Wool Peacoat

Petit Bateau's Christmas collaboration




THE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN
PETIT BATEAU AND CÉDRIC CHARLIER

Petit Bateau is always enthusiastic about enriching 
its collections through exclusive partnerships.
For the end of the year, the brand has lined up 
a collaborative project that brings together 
its legendary sailor stripes and the imagination 
of Belgian designer Cédric Charlier.

Using the iconic sailor stripes as a canvas for his creations,
Cédric Charlier has designed a capsule collection for men,
women and children that is perfectly in tune with the times.
Its contemporary style, underpinned by the meticulousness 
and cuts Charlier is known for, is apparent in soft, comfortable
pieces that break up the classic lines with collages and shake 
up traditional designs by using bold colours.
Painted lines jostle perfectly straight stripes and the usual
horizontal stripes share the spotlight with their vertical peers,
both in a new range of widths.

Photographer Alfredo Piola has captured the lively collection 
and its celebration of movement in a “zero gravity” photo 
shoot that features dancers executing a variety of daring acrobatic feats.
