menswear duchamp relaunches menswear ss22 the chic geekThere is a new collaboration between artist and environmentalist Coco Capitan and Belgian ebike brand Cowboy

Left - Coco Capitan X Cowboy T-Shirt - £40

Coco and Cowboy have collaborated on a limited edition T-shirt to celebrate the positive impact the cycling community has on cities. The T-shirt features Coco’s prose in her signature handwritten style, is made from organic cotton and is GOTS, Fairwear and Oeko-tex certified. All sale proceeds will go to Cool Earth, a non-profit organization, working to protect the rainforest and fight the climate crisis by supporting indigenous communities. 

The collaboration started from a very simple observation: when communities around the world come together for a common purpose, we can do good for the earth. The bike has been a symbol (and part) of protest for generations, seen as a remedy for car culture and a better way forward for the environment. As the original connected bike, Cowboy is at the forefront of this movement, having reached the amazing number of 10 million rides since its inception.

Boardies x Liberty SS22 Swimwear

menswear boardies liberty print swim shorts ss22 the chic geekBoardies has teamed up with Liberty to create a limited-edition collection of swim shorts. The unique designs are made from 'Repreve' recycled plastic water bottles, sustainable materials and packaging. Each pair comes with a matching Liberty x Boardies bag. 

Left & Below - Boardies x Liberty - Men's Short - £80

The collection contains four hand drawn graphics: Studio Bohemia, Charleston Posy, Curious Land and Liberty Dazzle. 
 
Studio Bohemia features a kaleidoscopic abstract painted print with rich vibrant colours. It is inspired by a variety of Liberty’s archival 1970s motifs, featuring bold geometrics alongside Art Nouveau-style florals, intricate ikat shapes and detailed paisley prints. 
 
The Charleston Posy short is a classic Liberty floral print, a vibrant motif created with oil pastels to evoke the untamed nature of bohemian gardens, with their abundant beds of wild roses. 
 
The Curious Land short is inspired by the dream-like world that Lewis Carroll imagined in his story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, depicting a magical floral utopia of enchanted flowers and mushrooms. This hand-drawn motif is a visionary celebration of the glory of nature, a whimsical take on Boardies tailored shorts. 
 
The Liberty Dazzle Print short is inspired by the starlike flowers found in the paintings of Gustav Klimt, with an all-over ditsy floral print that twinkles and glimmers like a meadow on a hazy summer’s day. 
 
Available exclusively at Liberty London, Liberty online and Boardies® online

TELFAR x EASTPAK Launches

Telfar Eastpak bag collaboration buy SS22

After a blind pre-sale that sold out in minutes, the TELFAR X EASTPAK collaboration has finally arrived and includes the brand's first ever backpack. In collaboration with Eastpak—purveyor of high quality packs and luggage since 1976 —the two brands have debuted a collection that is both fashionable and functional.

The four-piece lineup consists of TELFAR’s iconic shopping bag in three sizes and a new circle bag reworked with Eastpak’s expertise and emphasis on utility.

Left - TELFAR x EASTPAK - From £70

TheChicGeek says, "The original vegan Telfar tote became a cult accessory almost over night. That encircled T logo was ingrain on people's consciousness long before anybody had even heard of the 'genderless fashion project' founded in 2004 by Telfar Clemens in New York City. Due to its affordability, it quickly an it-bag, a hard task in today's market drowning in product.

Here it gets the Eastpak makeover in its trademark polyester and the signature tote is cleverly turned into a practical backpack. Prices are great too."

Menswear Product Of The Week The Shiny Winter Sandal

Joseph Cheaney Richard Biedul sandal collaboration

Being a geek, it goes without saying that we like a sandal and sock combo. And, we don’t let cold weather stop us when getting our geek footwear on.

Left & Below - Cheaney X Richard Biedul - Vetri - £325

Part of a new capsule collection with English shoemaker, Joseph Cheaney, and, solicitor/model turned artistic director, Richard Biedul, is this elegant 'Vietri' sandal in black rub off hi shine.

This T-Bar sandal, also known as a Gurkha sandal, has something of the jelly and fisherman sandal too and I’m all over it. The high-shine takes it up a notch.

Biedul is a man of good taste and has become one of the most photographed men during London Fashion Week Men’s both on and off the catwalk. This is a man who knows how to rock a suit or Oxford Bag trouser and further proof of his expert eye for detail is seen this new collaboration. I’m sold.

Must Have Schott NYC X Fila AW18 Collaboration

Fila Schott NYC collaboration settanta leather menswear AW18Move over Fendi. Fila has reimagined their classic sports pieces in Schott NYC’s signature leather. Having invented the biker jacket in 1928, Schott NYC, now, joins forces with Fila’s motor-sporting legacies, this time centred around their reign with Ducati which saw the brand support many champions, such as James Toseland and Niel Hodgson.

TheChicGeek says, "This is Fila's signature shapes, and you know I've been a fan of Fila bringing back its back catalogue for a while, but in the softest lambskin. This is pimped sportswear and the prices aren't ridiculous. I'm tempted to get the full Settanta leather tracksuit".

Buy Now Johnstons of Elgin X Private White V.C.

Best Menswear Collab Johnstons of Elgin Private White VC waxed jacketQuite possibly the collab. of the season. One of the finest mills in Scotland, Johnstons of Elgin, has been trying to move into the ready-to-wear menswear market for a few seasons, now. They have the finest cloth and it makes sense to want to control the final product. Scotland’s answer to Zegna, maybe?

Best Menswear Collab Johnstons of Elgin Private White VC waxed jacket

Finding the skills to manufacturers garments to the high standards these fabrics deserve isn’t easy in the UK, so it’s great to see they’ve teamed up with one of the best coat manufacturers, Private White V.C. in Manchester.

Left & Right - Black Single Breasted Ventile Men’s Trench Coat & Gilet - £1795

The new collection features two jackets: a single-breasted trench coat featuring a seam sealed waterproof external fabric with a detachable quilted gilet complete with a contrasting lambswool tartan lining and cashmere knit collar and the waxed country jacket using a 1402 Halley Stevenson premium wax fabric boasting weatherproof and thornproof qualities. Lined with Johnstons of Elgin 100% cashmere velour, it features details of punched leather elbow patches and trim on the collar. Both jackets feature Johnstons of Elgin’s 100% cashmere velour.

We are very excited to showcase and celebrate the best of British quality garment manufacturing and specialist cashmere textiles all made entirely in the U.K. We value the unique expertise and authenticity that Private White embody and for helping to bring our cloth to life. Our parallel stories and family owned history create the perfect partnership.”

James Eden, Brand Director at Private White V.C said: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with one of the most esteemed cashmere manufacturers in the world; Johnstons of Elgin. Together we have struck the perfect blend of luxurious fabrics and quality craftsmanship- these are pieces of outerwear that have been made to last a lifetime and I believe they will be cherished by whoever is lucky enough to wear them for just as long.”

The only negative, these jackets are crazy expensive and I almost wish they were bursting with more Johnstons’ fabrics. If you do want a beautiful Johnstons of Elgin blanket type coat look at Gieves & Hawkes’ new AW18 collection.

ChicGeek Comment HM X Erdem The Verdict

Menswear Erdem H&M expert verdict The Chic Geek

Arguably the biggest fashion collaboration of the year, every year, H&M are masters of creating hype and buzz with whomever they choose to tie-up with. This year was the turn of British/Canadian designer, Erdem Moralioglu, just don’t ask me to say his full name, so they stuck to just “Erdem”, luckily, and they approached things differently.

Left - Short Sleeved Shirt - £69.99

Usually you don’t get to see the full collection with prices before the big reveal, and often the collection is a seen as a “greatest hits” type homage to the brand rather than bang-on-the-fashion of the season or what customers are currently buying.

H&M held a preview fashion show in L.A. a couple of weeks ago to selected press, they released images and prices of the full collection and they held a preview shopping evening for press and the public the evening before it hits stores, this week, at the glamourous and spookily beautiful Freemasons' Hall in Covent Garden.

Menswear Erdem H&M

Erdem has never sold menswear before so it was a first, and his floral signature is definitely in vogue, ATM, thanks to Gucci. This collection is basically H&M’s nod to Gucci’s current aesthetic and hedges their bets with a public who may not know the Erdem name or care.

The queues for Freemasons' Hall was full of London’s fashion folk. Once inside it was a frenetic grab for items people came specifically to buy. There was no time for browsing.

Right - If you missed or couldn’t afford the Burberry Tudor ruffle neck white shirt, here’s Erdem’s version - £49.99 

When you see designer, Christopher Kane, amongst the hubbub of rails and elbows, you feel it won’t take much for his name to be in the running for next year’s collab. (Which would be very good BTW).

Menswear Erdem H&M expert verdict The Chic Geek

After the initial buying panic, the coats and tailoring didn’t seem to be very popular. It was the silk and floral pieces that people wanted and they quickly disappeared. Silk pieces seem to be very much in demand right now - See my favourite from Pretty Green - here - and checking on H&M's UK website you can’t even view the Erdem, page.

This is the right collection at the right time. People are going to be bored of this Gucci look pretty soon, so they’ve timed this collaboration right. The florals aren’t particularly standout, so don’t scream "Erdem X HM". They’re not that memorable which will work in their favour and, let's be really honest, men can never have enough floral silk pyjama sets!
