Cootie Autumn/Winter 2011

Here is a look at the autumn/winter 2011 collection from Japanese label Cootie. The collection entitled Feed the Fire is all shot on site beside a giant bonfire in the woods. I like the approach to the lookbook, with great photography, with the light from the fire acting as the lighting for the shoot giving everything a warm feel. The line seems to have an overall motorcycle influence, with the focal point of the collection being the outerwear styles. Keep reading for the rest of the catalog from Cootie for the A/W 2011 season.

Snoid Autumn/Winter 2011

Japanese label Snoid are bring the straight up weirdness for the autumn/winter 2011 season and I like it. I stumbled across this line while looking into Japanese motorcycle shops/retailers. The line fuses a mix of classic Americana, workwear, rockabilly and a kooky twist of Japanese humor. The label also has a very unique name, with Snoid meaning a person who gets off on sniffing bike seats and chair bottoms!? (it was also a Robert Crumb character, Mr. Snoid). Really digging the ‘I-love-to-screw’ and ‘I work for a ding-a-ling’ patches, the use of the Quaker guy, and the don’t bug me souvenir style jacket. The rest of the collection after the jump…

London based shop Goodhood keeps the lookbooks rollin’ out for the autumn/winter 2011 season. This time around the shop puts together the Nevermind lookbook, which takes inspiration from the 90′s grunge movement, more directly Nirvana. The looks seen feature lots of stripes, washed denim, flannels and cardigans, all a big part of the grunge style. The shootfeatures pieces from Norse Projects, Junya Wantanabe, Wood Wood, Vans, Perks & Mini, Pendleton and more. Keep reading for the other half of the lookbook…

Norse Projects A/W 2011 Lookbook

The Norse Projects boys have released this official lookbook for their autumn/winter 2011 collection. I thought that they had already done a lookbook for this collection, but the more the merrier with this label.  Shot in a classic studio style, this spread really focuses on the pieces and looks themselves, not the beautiful landscape they are standing in front of or the motorcycle they are sitting on. Another look at this great looking collection from one of our favourite the labels, Norse Projects.

Varde77 A/W 2011 Lookbook

Japanese label Varde77 has released this lookbook for the autumn/winter 2011 season. The brand operates under the concept of ‘Vintage & Future,’ and I feel like that is pretty apparent with these modern infused/retro inspired outdoors looks. I really like the styling with heavy layering as well as all the random beautiful outdoor locations utilized to frame the lookbook. Keep reading for the rest of the collection…

Vulture by Journal Standard A/W 2011



Another look at the offshoot lines from Japanese retailer/brand Journal Standard, with their ‘Vulture’ line shown here. We featured the J.S. Homestead collection a few days ago and it had a bit more of a classic outdoors vibe, this collection from Vulture takes a more modern technical approach to the outdoors thing. I’m really into the product spread and the bag collection, but it’s all good.

Our Legacy ‘Impressions’ Autumn/Winter 2011 Lookbook

The boys over at Our Legacy have put out their lookbook for the autumn/winter 2011 season, entitled Impressions. The collection itself is super classic, wearable as well as versatile. The looks range from light grey wool suits to some next levels, like white cutoffs with leggings and Jordan 5′s. As I mentioned before I am liking the OL approach to presentation, making all their shoots have a real casual feel. Keep reading through for the rest of the looks…

J.S. Homestead Fall/Winter 2011


Journal Standard have released their new autumn/winter 2011 catalogue which not only features the collection itself, but also their offshoot lines such as J.S. Homestead, seen here. Personally I am feeling the offshoot lines more than the main line itself. Maybe its just cause I am really feeling vests right now, but I especially like those looks in particular. Keep reading for the outerwear and bag collaboration with Superior Labour.
