Label To Know Harago

menswear labels to know harago matchesfashion indian embroideryIndia is famed for its embroidery and hand-work. European designers such as Dries van Noten and Jupe by Jackie have long championed the skills and imagination of Indian craftspeople, tailoring the designs and quirky graphics to appeal to western eyes.

But, a new homegrown, Jaipur-based brand, specialising in Indian embroidery, has hit the menswear scene. HARAGO was launched by Harsh Agarwal in 2019 to showcase and support the artisanal heritage of his native India. Stocked at Matchesfashion and SSENSE, the trained economist, who worked on solar energy projects, and completed an internship at the UN in New York, finds inspiration in the diverse expressions of traditional craftsmanship seen across his country. From block printing, handloom weaving and tie-dyeing to chikankari, ikat and more, the label’s designs are cut from up-cycled, locally woven, or vintage textiles.

menswear met gala 2022 schiaparelli get the look gold thom browneThe stylish reinvention of the surrealist Schiaparelli has made it the hottest label in fashion right now.

Actor Louisa Jacobson - left - wore the couture label, designed by the American designer Daniel Roseberry, to the Gilded Age themed Met Gala, last night.

While actor, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II - far left - was wearing Thom Browne, it clearly fits the Schiaparelli gilded theme with its beautiful gold decoration.

To get the look, look for embroidered gold badges and stylish scatter pin them across your outfits. More the merrier. The gold looks particularly good against black. Search on eBay for budget options.

Menswear Label To Know VOYLOK

menswear labels to know Voylok unisex wellies wool bootsVOYLOK boots are made with wool and hot water - that’s it. No seams or stitches, no dyes, no chemicals, no waste.  A British sustainable footwear brand, one pair of boots will take you anywhere you want and if you slip off the natural rubber overshoe you can even wear them at home.  Because they are so easily separated, it makes end of life solutions simple: the wool boot goes in your garden or compost, and the rubber overshoe goes in the recycling.  It’s that simple.

VOYLOK boots come in a reusable RePack bag - no tissue paper or cardboard boxes in sight and all 22 kgCO2e of carbon is offset via certified rewilding projects.

For every pair of boots bought,  VOYLOK plant a native tree on our customers’ behalf - such as alder, birch, rowan or willow.  They are planted in deforested areas of the UK helping to turn open hillsides and glades into healthy, diverse and meaningfully wild forest areas.

VOYLOK is run by a collective of individuals who are all passionate about spending more time in nature.   They come from varied backgrounds with experience spanning Burberry, lululemon, Heist, PANGAIA and even Coca-Cola. They live all over Europe but have each found their truest, wildest selves in the outdoors, and believe the world will be a better place if more people spend more time in nature.

menswear product of the week bode camp collar patchwork shirt mr porter buyI always like to camp it up this time of year - with a camp collar shirt, of course! - and there is nothing camper than this patchwork shirt from Bode. Emily Adams Bode is a New York based designer using vintage fabrics and techniques to produce an eclectic men’s label known for its unique feeling and style. The prices aren’t crazy for ‘designer’ either, especially when you consider some of the hand-work.

Like a classic American quilt, this handmade shirt is cut in a boxy shaped  individually patchworked, so no two are exactly the same. It will be quickly become an antique-like piece in your wardrobe.

Wear with generous shorts, coloured sports socks - Keith Haring, anyone?! - and plimsolls.
