We Are Handsome is the embodiment of Indhra and Jeremy and everyone else who has a love for the beautiful things in life. Their desire to create, design and share perfection has understandably made them a hit, adopted quickly by the likes of Rihanna or Nicky Minaj, which isn’t a sign of quality but still says it all about the eye-catching designs of the fashion duo. Chack out the Spring Summer 2012 lookbook after the break to assess how sexy you could be wearing one of their swinsuits/legging.

The suits themselves are great. Superb wool quality, very nice clim cut, awesome patterns etc… But I’m pretty intrigued with this lookbook for the upcoming SS 2012 collection. I feel like it’s very american in some ways and somehow outdated too. I mean fairisle ? Shawl collar cardigans ? Fortunately though, I digg the visible ankles, the white pants, the tassel loafers and the bucks. And the suits. What do you think ?

Burberry Prorsum goes African Style for SS 2012: the entire line is available on their website! I tried on the eclectic blue print t shirt (above right) yesterday at Kabuki and just loved it (can’t afford a 300€ tee though…)! But the line is just a blast! Love the way they’ve integrated African traditional patterns in their designs… It even makes me think of Theophilus London retro style!
