British clothing company Firetrap has released a spring/summer 2012 lookbook to accompany their latest clothing collection.
For this particular collection, the brand drew inspiration from the diverse culture of a city that is at the heart of Firetrap’s heritage – London. The result is a widely varied and extremely effortless collection, which is also very wearable.
From the new preview collection released this week – and especially through browsing the lookbook – the items that really caught our attention here at the FashionBeans office were the graphic tees and check shirts.
The range of check shirts immediately stood out because they don’t conform to the traditional (over-popular) styles that are on the market at the moment – this is due to Firetrap’s experimental use of textures, shapes and styles. One particular piece that we loved was the large plaid shirt, which has incorporated denim detailing to the collar and front pocket pouch – this manipulation of fabrics not only adds a sense of depth and character to the shirt, but is also right on trend with the whole industry focussing on texture throughout autumn/winter and progressing into spring/summer.
Perfect for a more relaxed weekend look, you can team this shirt with chinos, tailored shorts or even your favourite pair of jeans. Through innovative design touches and attention to detail such as this, you can stand out from the masses effortlessly this season.
The graphic t-shirts give a good insight into Firetrap’s playful side, incorporating imperial images mixed with hand drawn elements such as British Bulldogs and Skeleton prints.
