Buyer's Guide SS17 Oki-Ni

Christopher Fisher, Head Buyer, oki-ni

Floral shirt Junya Watanabe The Chic Geek"Oversized floral prints on short-sleeve lightweight shirts are a staple forsummer – relaxed beachwear from the catwalks was heavily influenced by the 90s, with references including Baz Luhrmann’s iconic Romeo and Juliet. Junya Watanabe is one of the new brands joining oki-ni this season and his pieces carry much kudos for their wearer!" 

Left - Junya Watanabe - Black Flower-Print Short-Sleeved Shirt - £320

White trainers sneakers Common Projects"Every guy should own a pair of crisp white low-top sneakers – the term versatile is an understatement. Common Projects has been the go-to luxury brand for many a season now. The ‘Achilles’ Low has a clean, minimal silhouette and is crafted in Italy from the finest leather". 

Left - Common Projects - White Premium Achilles Low Sneakers - £248

Wide Leg Trousers Menswear Maison Margiela The Chic Geek"Wide-legged, loose fit trousers are not going anywhere soon. This pair from Maison Margiela are a prefect starter pair – not too oversized, they have a neat turn-up that will rest nicely on a pair of sneakers". 

Left - Maison Margiela - Natural Wide-Leg Cotton Trousers - £410

Sweatshirt Kolor Okini menswear The Chic Geek"Let’s face it – it’s still freezing outside. Layering is the key to getting through this cold snap. This panelled sweatshirt from kolor is perfect for now, but will also take you nicely into spring when paired with some wide-leg navy shorts (see Marni)".

Left - Kolor - Grey Panelled Sweatshirt - £389

 

 

 

 

"I am a keen runner, so I was really excited to bring Satisfy to oki-ni, this season. Satisfy is a brand for both serious and not-so-serious runners –their products are designed, prototyped and tested in their studio in Paris. The technical fabrications used are insane and not one detail is overlooked (The product looks super-slick too)".
