A/W12 ORIGINAL PENGUIN COLLECTION

The summer is officially over, and at PAUSE our attention has turned to the autumn / winter season, and the styles that will keep us warm through to the new year.

Something that we have been anticipating since its first showing during Paris Fashion Week back in January is the collaboration between Lee Jeans and Belgian menswear designer Kris Van Assche.

Between overseeing design in his role as creative director at Dior Homme and running his eponymous label KRISVANASSCHE, it’s a wonder the designer found the time to work with Lee to reinterpret a series of classic denim workwear staples; including jackets, trousers and shirts.

The collection works within a basic colour palette of navy blues and dark browns, and reflects the designers clear passion for menswear that is stylish, functional and masculine.

The block colour looks are bold yet refined, and are sure to make you stand out this season.

The collection is now available in select Lee and KRISVANASSCHE stores, as well as online at Hypebeast.

The unique American brand Original Penguin, created in the 1950’s, took huge inspiration from this era for their S/S collection.

But now, PAUSE gets a good look at their A/W12 collection, this time the label aiming their focus more on the grungier gritty side of the 50’s period.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic Marlon Brando movie ‘On the Waterfront’ (1954), the collection is designed for the never resting hard working man.

Men used their clothing as shields from the cold as they worked on docks, which worked hand in hand with their aggressive pride and rugged appearance.

This harder, tougher edge is what Original Penguin are aiming to bring back this A/W season.

The speckled crew-neck jumpers bring style and a difference to your wardrobe; directly referencing heritage docker clothing, and the khaki military styled shoulders and elbow patches give a tainted, worn effect.

Legwear comes in a range of fits and colours this season.
From straight and carrot leg fitting and colours like charcoal, navy, teal blue and royal purple colours that are very popular this A/W!
