A new label that’s just come on board the Circus van is the rather enigmatic (Google’s not yielding much…) Made For You By Arms. A self-professed purveyor of clothes for hands-on people, the label is minimalist but not in that so stark and aloof manner. Rather, one envisages that post-putting-on there’s a general feeling of wholesomeness and comfort. Casual staples form the framework of the AW09 collection: crew-neck sweats and tees, and button-ups with pin-pricks of colour, all in a palette that’s totally laid-back while still being interesting enough to catch the eye.
Earlier today I answered a few questions from the Fashionoclast on menswear. Unlike the nature of womenswear, not much has changed in a matter of hours and my opinion remains the same – menswear is founded upon subtle flourishes which combine to define a man’s style. Surely this is it in action.
