The unexpected things in life often are the most fun things you experience.
At arrival at home I found a big white box addressed to me, something what at first scared me, did I accidentally ordered that McQueen Jacket while I was day dreaming at work? Have I been sleep shopping again? SOON That transformed to curiosity. Was it a gift from the fashion gods for all the hard work I have been doing this fashion season? Was it a gift from H&M for all those loyal years buying there? With all that in mind I quickly opened the box to discover that it was my prise from mentrend.net. I had won the Classic & Contemporary Kit by Close Up and Private for Premium by Jack & Jones. A while ago I had entered the give-away and I was one of the lucky winners! What do you guys think of the kit? One of my favorite items from the kit is the cut off knit tie, I am planning on wearing that tie with several outfits, the possibility's within the kit seem to be endless.
Sergei Sviatchenko, the Danish artist and blogger behind Close Up and Private, collaborated with Premium by Jack & Jones. He gives the modern man a well needed makeover with his new, limited edition capsule collection for , "The Rockrebel / Classic & Contemporary Kit".
Ignoring the cliché of ripped jeans, T-shirt and a leather biker jacket we tend to think of when we imagine a fashionable rock star, Sviatchenko provides a modern revolt into style. The rocker look he channelled is inspired by the mid-60s British Invasion-era, a period that revolutionised menswear.
This kit is a readymade rocker wardrobe, including a tab collar shirt in understated Tattersall check, navy blue wool trousers, a green full-knit cardigan, a brown leather belt, a knit tie in navy blue, a British Military inspired repp tie and ribbed socks.
These 7 items are like a collage of Sergei - all the pieces work well both individually and combined.
