Although we have a great selection of brands online, we do have a whole list of in store exclusives which often don't get enough attention on our blog. This week we decided to give you a better glimpse at some of our in store exclusive brands and new items for Spring 2016. We will be covering Hugo by Hugo Boss (also known as Red Label), premium European jean maker Denham, and Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto's collaborative line Y-3. Our Spring 2016 inventory started rolling in so we'll give you a look at some of the new styles from this season.
'Hugo' By Hugo Boss
If you've ever bough a piece from German luxury fashion brand Hugo Boss, you may have noticed their various different labels. Each one of these sub-labels speak to a different audience and offers varying price points. Hugo Black features a lot of very classic pieces, while the Selection line is more formal. Hugo Boss Orange label is their leisure line featuring printed t-shirts, casual jeans, as well as less formal jackets. The Hugo Boss Green label is dedicated to the sportswear lifestyle. This label includes items such as lightweight jackets, track tops/bottoms, and athletic sneakers.
The label which we are going to focus on today is Hugo by Hugo Boss. This is their most fashion-forward label which overall targets a younger demographic. Looking at the red label compared to Hugo Boss Black for example, you will notice the much slimmer fits, shorter rise on the pants, higher armholes on suiting, as well as less conservative fabrications and styles. The interesting thing about the Hugo Red label is that designs can drastically change from season to season, so you can always expect to see something new and refreshing.
One of our favourite pieces from the Hugo collection is their skinny fit Moto jean. This all black pair of jeans is constructed from premium Japanese denim and features unique zipper and paneling details. This piece is an example of the HUGO label interpreting relevant fashion trends and making it their own under the Red Label.
Another standout piece from the Red label is their premium leather jacket. Taking on a similar theme as the biker denim, this jacket features plenty of zipper detailing, all of which add even more character to the jacket. The outer layer is constructed from 100% lambskin leather, making this jacket a great layering piece during the winter months.
This is another one of our in store exclusive brands which deserves some attention. This modest jean maker is perhaps, in our opinion, one of the best at combining the finest quality fabrics with premium manufacturing. Denham was founded back in 2008 by Jason Denham along with a small team of likeminded people who were passionate about denim. Their take on the industry is to 'Worship tradition; Destroy Convention'.
Denham's devotion to premium materials takes clothing production to the next level. They use the highest quality long-fibre yarns which result in a soft and durable product. They've partnered up with some of Italy's most talented weavers who create a product which utilizes hybrid weaving processes and provides modern performance. Denham features a lot of signature details in their products. The most noticeable one is their Denham Scissor logo which is sewn on using 691 stitches. Other notable details include their premium copper hardware and printed interior yoke panels.
Our new Spring 2016 collection of Denham includes pairs of their 'Razor' slim fit pants in a grey and blue wash. The Razor is a slim fit jean which represents Denham's contemporary take on the staple 5-pocket jean. These jeans are soft to the touch and ooze quality from thread to thread. Denham's signature detailing can be found all around on the inside of the denim, while the outside represents carefully calculated fading.
Other items which we recently stocked include their high quality faded crew necks. This premium crew neck is constructed from soft cotton and is perfect if you're going for a vintage look.
Y-3 is the combination of German sportswear giant Adidas and Japanese high fashion genius Yohji Yamamoto. Adidas blends sports functionality with Yohji's signature high fashion style to create effortlessly cool pieces with every collection. The fashion infused sportswear label introduced a pair of high quality basic t-shirts, sporting the Y-3 logo in tonal colours on the chest.
Y-3 Qasa High in Black/White
Other items from the new Spring 2016 arrivals include the Y-3 Qasa high top sneaker which we talked about last week. This is a new take on an old model. Subtle changes include black on black materials rather than contrasting ones from previous models. but we also received several wardrobe basics from the collaborative label.
The black Y-3 hoodie is a well constructed everyday piece. It features a large, black on black Y-3 logo on the back of the garment. Add this versatile piece to your everyday outfits for some extra layering and comfort.
