On June 29th 2012, menswear designer Jan-Jan Van Essche will launch his annual wardrobe COLLECTION#3 - ‘IN AWE’.
This collection brings discrete elements of oriental nostalgia and tranquility into the wearer’s wardrobe. 
Each garment is carefully and intentionally constructed to maintain its own independence,
while sharp-cut volumes are delicately layered to flow into one another, emphasizing the contrasts in textures of fabrics.
The natural yet bright indigo blends in, overwhelms and deepens the silhouettes, obstructing a monotone color palette.

"Desertion" ▏Eastpak by Wood Wood Collection

Finally the Eastpak x Wood Wood collection lookbook arrived. The collection is designed in style to the Wood Wood spring/summer collection and incarnates the flair of a hot desert with a mix of natural materials, ethnic motives and soft colors.
Natural materials with a weather-beaten and crumpled look are the main character of the collection.

Toon Kympers, Product Director of Eastpak:" At the first view, the Eastpak x Wood Wood collection is contrary to the typical Eastpak vision, but if you take a closer look on the collection you can see that this collection is representing an universal sensibility. The drive to be present, explore, discover without any limits, without fear and without expectations. All in all, you can find Eastpak in every little detail in the collection.

Brian SS Jensen, Co-Founder/ Designer of Wood Wood:" It´s been a awesome experience, working together with Eastpak for this project. During the process, we´ve been open for new and it´s been a great collaboration between both brands. Our primary thoughts and concepts have been moved perfectly into the collection we are proud of."

The Eastpak x Wood Wood Collection includes ten styles, from backpack over weekender to sac and accessories, I think, I will take the weekender and the sac :). The collection will be available in selected stores from June 2012, prices from € 40 - € 220.

 "U.S. Import hold a unique place in the market, especially within Copenhagen with the store also playing as a flagship store, for the lack of better words, for Soulland while complimenting the label with a selection of other well established labels. Having known Silas Adler, designer and founder of Soulland and one half of U.S. Import for sometime I been able to really understand his design philosophy over the years and see him grown into one of the leading creative's in the scene. We worked together on U.S. Import High Summer, along with a team of very astute people to compile an editorial of mass proportions. Below, Adler puts it in his own words about the idea behind the piece." 

"The U.S. Import High Summer showcases a hand picked  selection of the brands we have in the store in a graphic and color full setting. The styling in the shoot reflects a bold, vibrant look in the shop for the season with patterns and color, surf shorts and varsity jackets, yellow shirts and beige capes all essential to the aesthetic. All parts of a strong summer look!"
