although summer is still ahead of us, it isn't a bad idea to plan ahead. and that includes style options. canadian contemporary men's label wings + horns presents its a/w 2014 collection, one that takes cues from home turf. the design process was guided by the utilitarian mentality required in northern environments, and this has resulted in a range of pieces hallmarked by durability and simplicity, and using warm, weather-ready fabrics. adding an exotic touch are two custom japanese fabrics: cabin fleece and dusk stripe terry. while the first has been used to create a hoodie, crewneck and sweatpants, the latter appears in a blazer, shirt jacket and the lining of a suede bomber with wool rib. equally inspired by long winter nights, the palette includes natural hues such as evergreen, charcoal and petroleum blue. it's the second collection that commemorates wings + horns' 10th anniversary, and a number of key styles reference pieces from the brand's archival collections. shown here are five looks that we particularly like. the wings + horns a/w 2014 collection is available at select stores across the planet, including roden gray [vancouver], steven alan [new york], present [london], aegis [shanghai] and international gallery beams [tokyo].
