FIRST LOOK / KAPITAL GOES DOWN UNDER

Lets talk about the new Kapital Spring Summer 16 collection, "Denim Perth, Land Loves Indigo", an Australian story about the land and the sun. It’s a celebration of strangeness, and about a community of people who take life by the blue tongue’s tail.

TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY ANTIQUE FRENCH LINEN / MEL, TOKYO.

TURN-OF-THE-CENTURY ANTIQUE FRENCH LINEN / MEL, TOKYO.

As a not-so-well-known destination on the vintage route in Tokyo, Mel Antique deserves every bit of recognition for its exquisite collection of French cotton and linen, ranging from 1830 to 1950. Owner Takatoshi Tanaka is no understatement to the term ’passionate’, and his spirit is rooted in France where he spends long digging trips around the countryside - looking for these incredible pieces from old barn houses and warehouses.

THE SEA IS PARTING: OUR THOUGHTS ON MATTHEW DOLAN’S COLLECTION AT NYFW

We just want to say that Matthew Dolan’s work made our week in New York. As he did with his first collection, (that we must have raved on about a minute ago) workwear was given a new form. His poetic approach to creation and construction, was spun into thread and woven into realness, was alliterative and continuative, which sets a steady pace for the future of his label. This collection felt a little more consumable, which was a smart move. We like smarty pants who think about these things, it hints a little about what we can imagine the creativity taking us.

KAPITAL ROUTE E10 LAPPLAND / FALL WINTER 2015

KAPITAL ROUTE E10 LAPPLAND / FALL WINTER 2015

Sweden. The place that Ponytail readers would want to visit before they die, and the sort of epic destination one would choose to shoot a Fall/Winter catalogue, which is of course what our friends at Kapital rightly did this season. This time, the elements of greatness like clothes that reek of badassery and a cast and crew who all stand up as rad people in their own right. This book is to be released tomorrow and marks photographer Eric Kvatek’s 33rd book shot for the ultimate denim nerd’s psychedelic dreamland.
HOW ALASDAIR MCLELLAN + MARGARET HOWELL MELTED US THIS FALL.

HOW ALASDAIR MCLELLAN + MARGARET HOWELL MELTED US THIS FALL.

We love the direction that style is going in, trends are soon a thing of the past, and we are inspired by the past and present in moving forward. Margaret Howell’s Autumn Winter look book this year is so much of that timeless goodness that speaks to greatness through history, with her romantic poetry that’s woven through every scene. Alasdair McLellan has yet again communicated her exquisite fictional world that we can’t help but think about stories of audacity during war time. Watch the film unfold, the narrative is yours to finish.
