DISCOVER JUNE 2019’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
So, June has been a bit of a wash out but let’s stay positive chaps. Have you seen the forecast for next week? You’ll be complaining that it’s too hot in no time. With all this rain I’ve had more time than usual to seek out the coolest drops and this month we have cricket inspired jumpers, socks with a lifetime guarantee and two celebrity collabs. So, following on from my May roundup, I’ve compiled a list of my favourite products and releases for the month of June 2019 – enjoy.
Burton AW19 Collection
The Burton ‘Sartorial Club’ AW19 collection modernises the traditional dandy look. A contemporary mix of smart and casual that can be styled together for an effortless winter look. Influences are drawn from gentleman’s sporting clubs which inspire the smart preppy look through a wave of new classics and a twist on traditional sartorial fabrics and detailing. The new dress code is produced through the friction of styles between equestrian and sportswear – ornate heraldic team badging, vertical club stripes and pattern are key. The casual side of the collection offers a masculine outdoors feeling through remixing traditional patterns contemporised with pop colours and used on unexpected technical fabrics.
Darn Tough Socks
Darn Tough Vermont is an American manufacturer of premium, all-weather outdoor and lifestyle socks backed up by the industry’s only lifetime guarantee. The company offers both Specialty and Tactical product lines. Darn Tough Vermont’s Specialty line of socks includes Lifestyle, Hike, Running, Endurance, Vertical Ski/Ride, Bike, Hunt, Work and Juniors’ styles. So confident are they in the quality of their socks - they offer an unconditional lifetime guarantee. If their socks are not the most comfortable, durable and best fitting socks you have ever owned, you can return them for another pair.
MG Rivers Jumpers
British knitwear brand MG Rivers have launched a line of Extra fine merino V-necks, inspired by the British classic cricket jumper. These jumpers are super light but very warm and the fabric has a natural loft that traps heat very efficiently between the fibres. They’re also good warmer days too because Merino is really good at regulating your body temperature. Available in select colours which include Mustard which is sharp, piquant and tangy, and Olive Green which evokes space, wisdom, and compassion for humanity.
Duke + Dexter x Snoop Dogg
British footwear brand Duke + Dexter is joining forces with iconic American rapper, Snoop Dogg, to create a footwear collection available exclusively at Selfridges. The collaboration is inspired by the ‘pool to party’ lifestyle and is made up of 18 bold and eye catching Duke + Dexter styles. These include the Duke loafers, Reed mules and Dexter slides, adorned with Snoop Dogg motifs. The Snoop Dogg collaboration, will be a limited edition run of just 1,000 pairs that are numbered individually to mark their exclusivity.
Leica x Lenny Kravitz
Leica and Kravitz Design have collaborated on a camera built for rock n’ roll nomads who can be found on either side of the lens. The look of the Leica M Monochrom ‘Drifter’ has been created by Grammy-winning musician, actor and artist Lenny Kravitz, who is no stranger to bold style and individual expression. The result is an attention-commanding and soulful Leica camera made for global touring. The name is inspired by how Kravitz sees himself, “I’m a drifter. That has been my life since I was 15-years-old; I’m always on the road.” This limited-edition camera is designed with an eye-catching ‘synthetic python’ snakeskin covering, made from premium-quality vegan leather which looks straight out of the rockstar’s wardrobe.
Mulberry Introduces Urban Ranges for Men
Mulberry has launched a new range of bags and small leather goods for men. Three collections have been designed with modern lifestyles and functionality in mind: Zipped, Urban and City. A versatile, everyday practicality is explored with the new materials, styles and colours palettes tailored to the needs of men today. The overarching silhouette is relaxed but athletic; the small leather goods include soft pouches with exposed zips hanging from lanyards or snap hooks and studded wallets on metal chains. The bags cover all the demands of modern life - from every day to weekends away - with Urban belt bags and backpacks, Zipped reporter bags and weekenders, and updated City iterations of briefcases and messenger bags.
Bamford London launch the Mayfair Sport
The Mayfair Sport is the third timepiece in Bamford London’s signature Mayfair range, and is available in an eclectic range of brightly coloured designs, making it the perfect accessory for summer. Whilst fashionable in design, the Mayfair Sport is water-resistant to 10ATM, making it ideal for outdoor sports. It comes on a rubber strap with a unique wickerway function, and the LumiNova indices mean you can see the timepiece at any time of the day. Built around a steel core, the high impact polymer case and bezel come in a number of different colour options with a brand-new dial and dial configuration, providing wearers with the opportunity to express their personal style and taste.
