I have always been a major fan of Selected Homme and up until they started selling in the likes of Brown Thomas I used to shop pieces online. They now have a store in Dundrum and all I can say is my bank card is working over time
I love this Scandinavian brand because it’s so stylish and fashion forward! I feel it has been so underrated as a brand and that it doesn’t get enough attention it’s so affordable and yet they haven’t compromised on the superb quality! From longline jumpers to biker jackets to suits they have it all. Today I viewed the new collab with Antonio Banderas and I gotta say the guy knows his stuff.
The pieces that he has collaborated on are impeccable! I love the detail on the leather jackets and that gold zip was specifically chosen by Banderas to do away with the conventional silver zip. Its a great little detail that makes the jacket look way more expensive than it really is and it puts the jacket in a league of its own!
He collaborated with selected because he felt it really suited his sense of style and vision. The flag logos that are on all the pieces represent the name Banderas because “Banderas” in English translates to “flag”. I felt this was a nice touch.
There are a lot of indigo and blue colours in the collection and this is to remind himself of his Mediterranean roots.We also watched a little teaser video which you can find on my instagram @lawsofstyle_ and I could have listened to this guy talk all day, it was inspirational to say the least. The pieces are very minimalistic and relaxed he purposely chose those looks as he tried to convey his own personality. There will be two collections that will be released, one in August 2016 and the other the date is yet to be confirmed. The pieces range from €49 up to €399, they are affordable without compromising on quality! Keep an eye on the Selected website and Instagram page to get any updates on the new collection.
I took a few photos of the range.. have a look at some of the pieces that I have to say were my personal favourites!
Thanks for dropping by guys…
