Drawing on a softer colour palette, Schneider incorporates a mix of beiges, navys and greys. Fabrics this season are of lightweight cottons and jerseys, juxtaposed on the same garment. The designer also utilizes cotton-linen blends on his jackets. Look for grid graphics and gradients as well as oversized check prints.

Inventory Magazine's latest instalment, Issue 11 - FW14, is a step in a new and exciting direction for the Vancouver-based publication. The cover features two low contrast juxtaposed images of none other than visvim's Hiroki Nakamura, shot by Volume Four cover star Mark Borthwick. The magazine's cohesive layout design update provides a fresh, new format for their editorial content. Highlights include an insightful conversation with Hirofumi Kurino, the creative director of United Arrows, a minimalistic, yet striking editorial by Vienna-based photographer Hanna Putz, as well as an interview with John Gluckow, owner of NYC-based showroom Strongarm Clothing & Supply Co. Issue 11 is available now to purchase in store and online.
A very telling and in-depth article with Christophe Lemaire and his design/life partner Sarah-Linh. They discuss life after Hermes, designing as a tandem, defiance of seasonal trends and their idea of true luxury, among many other tidbits. A definite must read.
