The scorching summer months may be winding, down- but that doesn’t mean we don’t have our eyes on the world’s top designers whose upcoming collections are en fuego. We love the combination of a timeless, treasured timepiece matched with some of the hottest and freshest fashion. This month we take a look at some of our favorite designers and suggest the timepieces that would complement the look perfectly. Prepare to set your fashion game on fire and turn some heads this season.
Needles: Even for those who keep their finger on the fashion pulse, Needles seems to have taken the scene by surprise. While the brand has been around since 1997, it is only recently that the looks of designer Keizo Shimizu have been on the backs of hot DJs and celebrities everywhere. Inspired by classic American looks, Shimizu modelled his designs off of the free look of American fashion and the idea that there should be no rules to looking “cool.” What you can expect from this look is a mix of rugged Americana and Japanese textiles which combine for a ruggedly eccentric sporty feel. We love the look of matching the Patek Philippe with Shimizu’s style. The celebrated style of the Annual Calendar speaks to the classic style Shimizu strives for, but the attention to detail and the luxurious touches will delight the timepiece connoisseur. As Shimizu is a blend between East and West, we feel the Patek Philippe Annual Calendar is a blend between the classic and the creative.
Patagonia: Long regarded as the go-to brand for authentic, well-designed outdoor wear, Patagonia does their thing with little regard for the “noise” that can accompany the fashion world. With a company motto that strives to provide the best product with no unnecessary harm, Patagonia is also deeply invested in the environment. Creating a look that is simple and stylish, Patagonia is good at what they do. With over a billion dollars in sales, it is clear that those who are looking for the best in rugged outdoor wear agree with what Patagonia is doing. Unquestionably, the best match for the man who dons this designer is a timepiece from IWC. Strongly committed to the heritage behind their 150 year history, IWC creates a timepiece that is unmistakably rugged, yet exudes extraordinary precision and craftsmanship. IWC brings the finest technology and meticulous attention to detail to complete the look of the man who explores the outdoors, yet appreciates undeniable quality and luxury.
Lemaire: Super minimal with a nod to German progressive music as inspiration, Lemaire uses natural tones, woven fabrics and supple leather to achieve the iconic look. With a desire to stick to essential, uncompromising simplicity, the quality of Christophe Lemaire’s pieces are lighting up the runways. Striving to create a line of clothing that is spontaneous and free, Lemaire achieves this through unstructured lines and a look that comes across as natural and unforced. Lemaire exudes an every day, “real-life” chic and is a look that appears simple, yet sophisticated. The perfect timepiece for the designer who is able to pleasantly surprise through elevated basics is certainly Jaeger LeCoultre. We love the Jaeger LeCoultre Extreme World Rossi and believe the passion and unequaled craftsmanship and skill evident in every Jaeger LeCoultre timepiece pairs perfectly with the simple, yet progressive style of Lemaire.
