True to the spirit of the times, Staple has labeled its Fall 2012 collection “American History ______,” a nod to the running theme of the dichotomy between the haves and have nots that exists throughout the history of the nation. Two particular epochs that serve as primary inspirations are the “Insurgent Era,” giving nod to the American history of warfare, and the “Native Era,” which pays tribute to the original Native American inhabitants of the land. Also contained in the range is the “Staple Icon” series, a subcollection that harks back to the New York City origins of the brand. The lookbook, shot by Anna Sian at The New Design High School in the Lower East Side, features assorted wardrobe essentials, highlighted by a varsity jacket, oxford button-downs, hoodies, denim and assorted snapbacks and tees.
