There is a special place in heaven for designers Masaya Kuroki and Gildas Loaëc for ruling the world season after season. While their music label is nowadays criticized for beeing too easy-listening or soft-electro, I feel like the fashion half of the French label Kitsuné goes the opposite way. For Spring/Summer 2012, the Hamptons inspiration is still there but the go-to-hell colors turned pastel and the 20s have replaced the 50s-60s. The collection is full of American style staples, from Ivy to Manhattan’s Mad Men. Pleated chinos in khaki or white, light cardigans and v-neck sweaters and the always impeccable button-down oxfords. I’m glad to see that they use my newly-acquired dual-tone suede loafers for the lookbook ! Rich Grandpa style that works properly for dressed-up summers. I love Kitsuné.
