It has been more than a year since President Obama took office and the world has been scrutinizing and accessing his words, promises and projects tried, failed and succeeded. Perhaps with his latest victory in healthcare reform, President Obama had won the right to keep playing in the game. Another pressing question at hand is the financial crisis. And it has been a year and a half since AIG was bailed out of its formidable debts (the question of whether the bailout was justified will be another issue). No doubt, the financial crisis has affected all walks of life, not just those on Wall Street. This season, STPL revisits the financial crisis and takes its thoughts and work to Wall Street quite literally. For Spring 2010 in terms of both tee and cut and sew, the theme is EconMajor, with Staple Design exploring the meaning of financial crisis and its components through the team’s own perspective. With regards to STPL Spring 2010, the folks heads for a less graphic and more discreet manner in dissecting the subject.
The collection seems to dictate a need for timelessness, wearability and quality. For the STPL man, a flattering fitted oxford shirt topped with a versatile hooded khaki jacket and worn over a good pair of lightweight Japanese selvedge denim is a look that can go a long way. Designs and silhouette are fitted and simple with a new focus on quality. The entire Spring 2010 collection is manufactured in Saitama, Japan with a new found level of dedication to garment making and tailoring.
Keeping in line with the theme, the Spring 2010 Lookbook is shot in Wall Street, which is quite a feat considering the amount of people moving through and working in the area. Check out the lookbook and delivery 1 items which are already available at Reed Space. Count on STPL to bring a new meaning to investment pieces. via: STPL
