Only Wednesday but it’s already been a rough week! Can it be the weekend already? At least, it’s started to be nice and warm in London… I know it probably won’t last but in the meantime it has me longing for some sun. And so I thought I’d share with you Toka Toka‘s new lookbook for their latest collection -since it was shot in sunny Marseille and inspired by Cuba! The collection is called Ambus Mundos. It is an ode to good old Ernest Hemingway, who resided in La Havana from 1932 to 1939. It features light Summer shirts inspired by the island and casual jackets and jerseys. All products are available here. Enjoy.
We recently discovered a Norwegian company called Lustbox (read our feature here). And quite frankly, having never worked with a Norway-based label before, we were pretty curious about the country’s menswear scene. So we asked the entrepreneurs behind the subscription box business to point us in the right direction and they immediately recommended we check out a new watch brand called Berg.
At Le club des douze, we believe that it’s important to own a couple of pieces that will make up your wardrobe. But it’s equally as important to accessorize those properly. And to keep it fresh, you will have to build a library of accessories that you love and are happy to choose from, every day. Of course, it can take time and cost you quite a bit of money. Unless you have a system…
Nope. Our quest to find the coolest watches out there hasn’t yet ended. In fact, we just discovered a new Swedish brand that wereally wanted to feature on the blog this week. So without further ado, we’re telling you today about Ackurat, their sleek timepieces and their crowd-funding campaign.
So, we’re still on our quest to find the coolest watches on the market. After telling you last week about an ancestral European watchmaking maison, we decided to switch things up and tell you about a new brand called Maven, inspired by the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.
I had kind of a revelation earlier today. My daughter (who’s about to turn one!) was playing on the kitchen floor with one of my pocket squares -if you follow us on Instagram (@leclubdesdouze), you might have seen a picture of it in our stories. I’m not sure how she managed to put her hands on it, but she did. And she was happily playing with it, giggling. A part of me thought “alright, let’s put that back where you found it, it’s not a toy” but at the same time, I felt like the fact that she went on a scavenger hunt across the apartment and ended up picking this specific item to play with, deserved to be celebrated. And thus I felt like telling you about a gentleman’s accessories brand that I’m a little bit obsessed with these days, R. Culturi.
