The New Originals - J.W Hulme Co.

The words vintage, heritage or classic seem to be attached to a lot of new products these days, but only a few brands are really doing something archival while still being original. J.W. Hulme Co.'s new collection called the Sporting Originals is just that—a new line of historically inspired bags that the century-old Minnesota brand created 35 years ago for outdoor outfitter Gokey. Sparked by demand from their heritage-loving customers, the collection was crafted using materials from the original line (think 10 oz. waterproof canvas, rich full grain leather and matte nickel hardware). The bags are available in two options: A traveled version which has been individually stone-washed to give the luggage a beat up and worn appeal, or "do-it-yourself" types can choose the raw, un-traveled version and give it a more personal patina.

Made for the man on the go, a sense of urgency was felt at the latest show for Lanvin as textures reigned supreme. Dark, light and rushed together, the image of luxury was not a focus as ensembles of great interest and diversity came together. From sheer tops and knit vests to paneled outerwear, the Lanvin man took flight in an eclectic array that was difficult to unravel, but nevertheless engaging. Rounding off with chunky jewelery that possessed a certain ancient quality, designer Lucas Ossendrijver molded one of the best standout collections of the season.
