For Spring Eric Hart fantasized about a love between Ian Curtis and Jane Birkin on a cruise to Africa. In this collection he incorporated striking colors and African prints into his mostly grey-scale pallet. Bermuda shorts (which I think are quite stylish and neat for men and something Ian would have worn on a cruise) are kept casual and cool with kooky, creepy t-shirts (possessed Ziggy Stardust anyone?)
Even though I've only seen pictures of Ian Curtis wearing a button down and trousers I could see him wearing most of this collection. I think he would have been into the jackets and bermuda shorts combination. The accessories would have been great for him too. I love the Ray Bans and fedoras but I don't really dig the silver bag. I prefer men with a briefcase or messenger bag.
This season I love Lad Musician's line of Rolling Stones t-shirts with the quintessential tongue as well as the Stones in action. For the main collection "Sunshine and Shadow" they strayed from their usual rock n' roll feel and created something nostalgic like old photos of Bob Dylan. Some people see this collection as a disappointment. The simple suit looks are, well, simple and the preppy schoolboy ensembles are classic (think Dead Poet's Society) but I like the '50s feel of other looks collection. Denim shirts are light while jeans are mostly dark. A green sweater with navy trousers can be boring but the bandanna around the neck with a pair of trusty ray bans tucked into the collar brings forth a James Dean coolness. One of my favorite looks is the grey trouser shorts and dandy shoes thrown off by a screen printed t-shirt.
