" Selected Hommes AW 2011 "

Everyone that knows me, know im a BIG fan of Selected Hommes. The new AW11 Collection is exquisite, its a wardrobe staples with classic styled pieces and opt for this fine stripe Pine shirt from Selected/Homme. A refined choice both day or night this contemporary classic is a great foundation piece you’ll wear time and again. Tuck into tailored trousers to add instant polish to on-duty looks.






Selected Homme / Themodernist
Autumn’s inspiration comes from a guy described as The Modernist.
 He prefers to build up his wardrobe taking into account
timeless menswear classics, rather than following every latest
fashion trend.  He prides himself on the old fashion values of
menswear, but interprets it in a contemporary way.  Clean lines,
beautifully cut pieces in rich and timeless colours in luxurious
feel fabrics are the key to this modern man.  Selected Homme
takes this guy for autumn and adds a twist.  He becomes more
individual with quirky details such as colinings and contrast button stitches.

The Colours:
Classic pieces call for classic base colours.  The palette for
July is built up with black, white, grey and blue.  Of course,
a rich and luxurious camel colour is added to the palette to
emphasise the classic nature of this gentleman.  These beauti-
ful timeless shades have wide appeal.  To add some excitement to
the palette, splashes of a bright mustard colour are used along
with a hint of red. 

The Collection:
For autumn 2011, the Selected Homme guy mixes timeless classics
with retro styles to create a sharp and unique look.  He is 
concerned with high quality garments with precision cuts to combine
with his existing wardrobe.  Taking reference from London’s 50s
and 60s mod culture, he is sharply dressed, individual and confi-
dent with his own style.  Significant elements of the mod subcul-
ture include tailor-made suits, pop music and African American
Soul.  The formal universe takes on a cleaner interpretation of
this look.  Inspired by London’s Saville Row bespoke tailors;
think back to the good old values of men’s tailoring.
Think slim, tapered, neatly pressed trousers and a crisp button
down shirt mixed with a sharp blazer and a duffel coat; updated
timeless classics with ageless appeal….

The Jeans:
The jeans collection is inspired by the American Old West. In
July think western cuts on shirts and even on a blazer, west-
ern shirt pockets and push buttons.  Tobacco stitching, checked
shirts, denim shirts and multi-functional pockets are all promi-
nent here.  In August there is a focus on work and utility wear
and the look is heavier. Stitch and repair, red stitching, large
pockets, garment over dyes, heavy washes, and bleaching effects
all make for a true American work-wear inspired collection.
