When talented artists, musicians, film makers and designers unite, working together can be somewhat tricky. As for the boys and girls over at Uniforms for the Dedicated, things couldn’t be more simple.
As we all know, the Swedish are admired for projecting prideful innovation and contemporary designs into their work. The new ‘A Flock of Garments’ AW12 collection lives up to the name. A personal contribution from each artist, when combined, consists a blend of tradition, colour, fine detail and party Scandinavian hipster. Their stand alone work fits alongside the brand’s clothing perfectly.
The AW12 range possesses slouchy knitwear, drop crotch trousers and tough outerwear – products which are all too familiar with it’s Scandinavian designers. A combination of today’s gentlemen and Swedish heritage makes the collection as diverse and catchy as Uniform’s (Gothenburg producer Ram Di Dam) track A Play of Nonsense. The brand’s website hosts a variety of music and film, which gives each piece of clothing that extra appeal.
It was no where near a short process when finding our favourite piece in the collection here at FashionBeans. The Seducer Blue Snowflake Shirt is strikingly cool with it’s washed finish. On par was the Old Boy Blue Brown Sweat, with it’s traditional Japanese handcraft detail and general snugness.
The unstructured design of the Midlake Blackish Grey Jacket made this item a firm favourite. This particular design is suitable for both casual everyday wear (when combined with slim jeans) and evening events (when paired with black chinos and brogues).
These warming North European threads will prevent you from staying under the covers all the way through to March. See the full collection at Coggles.
