Coast + Weber + Ahaus

After stumbling upon this 2011 Fall/Winter collection by Italian brand Coast, Weber & Ahaus, I was pleasantly surprised at its caliber of style and sophistication.  I was so impressed that I felt obligated to show some of the women’s pieces even though we focus on men’s clothing. Subsequent to doing some research about the brand I soon came to find out how the clothing was so brilliantly crafted. The brand is made up three different labels. Coast who undertakes the men’s shirts, Weber pants and jackets and Ahaus knit, cut and sewn tops. These three lines cohesively work together in such a genius way to bring their individual looks to create this magnificent style.

CYCLE JEANS 2011 Fall/Winter Collection

It’s amazing how far dreams and aspirations along with some elbow grease can take you throughout your career.  This was the case for founding partners Andrea Bertin and Elena Boaretto beside the help of Gege Schiena (co-founder of Italservices) to make CYCLE  a reality. With professional backgrounds that stemmed from working with Fashion Box (Elena) and Replay (Andrea) to create the perfect formula to produce denim-street wear with a sartorial feel. Originally known for outerwear and knitwear, CYCLE quickly branched into dresses, shirts and leather goods. This Italian brand stands firmly by its philosophy of “Be sure wear pure” reinforcing that quality, passion and research was used to make their clothing. Here is a sneak peek at some of CYCLE’s Fall/Winter 2011 collection. It reminds me of new age hippie movement with great sartorial style.
