NEEDS&WANTS S/S '16 Lookbook

Segueing from our previous military-inspired capsule, our Spring offering has not, however, detoured from our affinity for sensual sportswear. Instead, our references pivot from the sun-baked adobe to the opalescence-amid-the-sandstone of New Mexico, informing our choice in materials and colour palette. I wanted to get back into the habit of shooting my own stuff this year. I bought a Rolleicord IV last Winter, and this is the first editorial I've shot with it. This was also Jackie's first time modelling.

Suede bombers are updated with zippers; a smooth transition from our button snap closure from previous seasons. Sheep collar suede Blousons—in luxe and midnight—are distinguished by an inverted tone-on-tone left sleeve. This signature characteristic—a statement beyond trademark—has been an emblem for several seasons, and seasons more to come: wherever we are, whatever inspiration strikes.

Although neutral tones are a natural focal point, the stand out piece in this offering is the steel blue suede “Gypsum” bomber, which invokes the tint of calcium sulfate found in the mineral itself. The Sandstone colour way, meanwhile, makes a reappearance—this time as a hooded rendition. The Berber shell—a lighter oversized layer reminiscent of our Fleece Wrap, adds another silhouette not only this delivery, but to the range of our entire collection.

As our themes for each capsule develop, we become a bit more season-less. Our approach becomes more genderless, and the narrative of our overall collection that much more seamless.

The collection is now available, here.
