Nom de Guerre , meaning name of war in English, was founded in New York City in 2003. The brand’s S/S 09 collection, “Sturm und Drang” (Storm and Stress), takes inspiration from its own name and early European cavalry units to present a line of uniform-like pieces in light blues and various shades of grey.
“Sturm und Drang” investigates expression of youth and freedom alongside military ideologiesâ€”and the outcome? Slightly regimental yet boyishly casual looks pulled together by khaki Tank Jacket and Cadet Shorts, topped off black silk Uniform Tie.
With refined engineering and functionality in mind, the Detachable Parka from this collection is knee length with a zip-off bottom panel; its sleeves can also be converted to 3/4 length. This breathable, waterproof nylon number has a structured cut and fully taped seams. You should be able to weather the unpredictability of spring skies in Nom de Guerre’s new pieces regardless of what you might be doing; sadly, you might have to supply your own pistol if needed.
