Isar coated canvas bag, £102.50

2. Thierry Lasry
Sobriety 995 sunglasses, £132

“Thierry Lasry is a new brand to our showroom for spring 15 but we have been admirers for a long time. The Sobriety style speaks for itself, with Thierry’s contemporary take on a classic retro silhouette, only using acetate from Mazzucchelli, an Italian factory, and hand-crafted in Paris. Thierry is already working with the likes of Dover Street Market, Liberty, Net-a-Porter and Matchesfashion.com.”

3. Natural Selection
Livingstone jacket, £55.50

“Natural Selection has really found its own aesthetic for spring 15. Not only creating authentic jeans but now married with a modern, contemporary
collection, it is having a great season in the showroom. This piece embodies Natural Selection’s brand message, given the intricate detail and pattern,
which is understated. It reworks a staple denim jacket shape into a new classic.”

4. Stutterheim
Stockholm charcoal rubberised raincoat, £80

“Stutterheim is pure craftsmanship with commerciality and effortless style. The Stockholm jacket in charcoal is a new colour and has had a great reaction. After a successful 2013, it’s not a secret that Stutterheim produces one of the best raincoats on the market.”

5. The White Briefs
Woody bomber jacket, £55.50

“The White Briefs is really starting to create waves, having already been picked up by the likes of Harvey Nichols, Start London, The Shop at Bluebird and Trunk. This piece sums up The White Briefs: using a beautiful organic reverse terry worked into an elongated classic bomber.”

6. Natural Selection
No Evil Jean 13, £112

“This denim is particularly special as the jean is constructed and washed authentically in Italy. The jean is made using a unique fabric created by Kurabo, a Japanese denim factory, specially for Natural Selection. The result is striking and, for the price, one of the best pairs of jeans available.”
