Brooks Brothers is back and how! With Micheal Bastian on the helm they present a fresh look on the old time casual sportswear favorites in a modern preppy way. This first collection by Michael Bastian for Brooks Brothers is inspired by the equestrian style of the East Coast of the US. I love the way Michael Bastian layers his models with the collection, as he also did for his own label and the GANT by Michael Bastian collections. He has a great eye for detail. Go Michael Go rock the Brooks Brothers house!
STEPPIN' OUT FLAG STORE @ WESTFIELD MALL OF THE NETHERLANDS
It has been a while since my last post, but the world stood upside down and we had to be focussed on other things instead of writing nice stories with beautiful pictures on Chad's Drygoods. Luckily everything starts coming back to "normal" again.
The last few weeks I have been very busy with the realization of our latest store. We opened a beautiful Flagship store in the Westfield Mall of The Netherlands, Leidschendam.
Steppin' Out started in 1983 in Utrecht as a second-hand store, students easily found the way for a vintage tweed jacket or a nice shirt. Today Steppin' Out has 15 stores in The Netherlands, still a go to heaven for the prepsters around us. Stocked with products from brands like William Lockie, Barbour, Sebago and many more, but also a great collection Steppin' Out shirts, pants, knits etc.
The store concept has the influence of a Long Island beach house combined with an English Estate and a touch of a New York loft. Warm wood, crisp tiles and colors in summer white and denim blue, steel elements and a tin ceiling above the cash desk.
Hope to see you soon in Leidschendam
THE BROOKLYN CIRCUS + CHAMPION FOR TODD SNYDER
Founder of Brooklyn Circus, Ouigi Theodore focuses on urban apparel, hats, and shoes that sport a vintage feel. His clothing gets respect for its quality, and his attention to detail has found him collaborating with brands like New Era, and now Todd Snyder, and Champion for a collection inspired by boxing, and more specifically, Muhammad Ali.
Borrowing from the feeling that must have stirred the air at Fighter’s Heaven, while Ali trained there in the 1970s, Theodore created this boxing inspired collection that show a vintage sportswear feel, and take elements from Ouigi Theodore’s aesthetic like a 1920 logo that speaks to his grandmother’s birth year in tribute to her.
Todd Snyder did it again, he has a great feeling of making the best collaborations in fashion!
