Daniel w. Fletcher and Huntsman are dropping some trustworthy tailoring
Daniel w. Fletcher first premiered his collaboration with Huntsman at London Fashion Week in June this year. The collection saw structured jackets and waistcoats, billowing tailored trousers and dramatic floor-length peacoats, which are all available to purchase now. Alongside hefty tailoring are straight-fitting one-pieces, which make use of contrast stitching to provide contrast. Shirt collars are cut loose and feature bib-like stitching, which extends to the middle of the chest, exemplifying the detail-focused approach applied to the collaboration. The Daniel w. Fletcher x Huntsman collaboration is available to purchase via the Daniel w. Fletcher webstore, with prices starting at £190.

Casablanca drops tennis-inspired “The Court” sneaker
Casablanca’s latest sneaker is inspired by tennis. Aptly named “The Court,” it has been designed in-house by Founder and Creative Director, Charaf Tajer, and Art Director, Steve Grimes. The retro-inspired designs nod to the nostalgia of the ‘80s and ‘90s, seen in the coloured sole in red, blue and green, which contrasts with a classic all-white upper. Casablanca’s playful take on a sporting silhouette is available to shop on the Casablanca webstore and select retailers.

IUTER and ENGINE celebrate the Bōsōzoku subculture
ENGINE Gin has taken the spirit world by storm with its innovative fusion of traditional gin-making with a disruptive visual aesthetic which draws on the visual properties of motor oil containers. It has collaborated with IUTER, to take this imagery to Japan and celebrate the Bōsōzoku culture – an anarchic motorcycle subculture and aesthetic that was born after the Second World War. They would often ride modified motorcycles and wear overalls decorated with custom symbols. The collection comprises T-shirts, caps, socks, and a workwear outfit consisting of a jacket and carpenter pants. The special IUTER x ENGINE clothing collection will be available starting from Nov. 17th exclusively at engine.land and iuter.com, and at IUTER Store (Milan).
