NSF Spring/Summer 2012

Southern California label NSF are bringing the straight up wearability with their spring/summer 2012 collection. With a heavy dose of clean and casual American sportswear basics, this presentation is looking spot on. A key note about their collection and denim in particular is the fact that they have acquired Simon Miller (pictured top) as their creative director in the denim department, which is a damn good look for the line. I also really dig the ladies looks, and the beautiful ginger helps with that for sure. Read through for the rest of the lookbook.


Mister Freedom x Sugar Cane MFSC Spring/Summer 2012

Here is a look at a heavyweight collaboration between Mister Freedom and Sugar Cane Co. entitled Men of the Frontier, which takes inspiration from the old western days of early American cultures. “Although inspired by the early American Frontier days, we stayed away from the Hollywood clichés of the “Cowboys and Indians,” as interpreted by early movie studio costumers. Instead, freely incorporating American/Native Indian/Mexican/European elements, we milled original fabrics and designed garments that could plausibly have existed, but stay our own humble addition to today’s attires for discerning gents.” Read through for the rest of the MFSC spring/summer 2012 collection.


Flying Coffin Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

Oh yes its time to unleash the beast, Flying Coffin are back with their newly released spring/summer 2012 collection. Not only is this the most cohesive and put together collection to date but it got rolled out with a brand new online identity with a new look for the FC site. We here at 84/85 have been fans of the line for years now, documenting the line as it grew and we are stoked to see where its at. For ss12 the line has put together an impressive range of outerwear, tees, hoodies, crewnecks sweatshirts and hats, all with an evil twist. Read though for the rest of the lookbook.


NOMA t.d. Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

Tokyo-based label NOMA t.d. here presents their s/s ’12 lookbook, a complete men’s and women’s collection in the same easy casual style they’ve been at since 2009. For the most part I prefer the women’s looks, as the guy’s looks are a bit effeminate for me… the presentation works perfectly for the girl’s pieces though, sun soaked, free flowing and timeless (click to expand images).


The Hill-Side Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook

New York based accessories company The Hill-Side has released this lookbook for the spring/summer 2012 season. They always put together an impressive lookbook boasting some familiar NYC fashion faces and a few hounds for good measure. I am a fan of their simple products and designs, and this season they threw in a few bolder patterns and colors which I can do without but then again I am a simple dude. Read through for the rest of the shoot (via Selectism).

We are always stoked to see when the guys over at Eat Dust are up to something new. This time around they have previewed a few of their new items that are in the works to be released next September. The two images above showcase the items that are in the works; first off is a navy wool 673-W jacket and wool vest, next is the chambray shirt and tie both made from chambray used by the French Navy, and finally their new Chino pant in a heavy Gabardine fabric, which is available now. Looking forward to what else these guys are cooking up over in Eat Dust land.
