The crispness of autumnal air has been known to invoke a bit of self-reflection and a keenness for outdoor adventure that is often times remiss from our urban lifestyle.
Fortunately the Master-Piece – Fall/Winter 2013 Collection Lookbook encourages a formative relationship with nature with its fur-trimmed coats, thick, wooly pants, subdued, long-sleeved shirts, and head-warming beanies that make it easier to transition from your weekday corporate life to your weekend camping trip with only a few tweaks to your wardrobe. The apparel appropriately suits the season’s recreational activities as the muted colors of navy blue, matte red, forest green, soft beige, and dusty brown channel autumn’s maturing foliage while still making you to look like a GQ cover model. Throughout the campaign, men are captured in moments of intense contemplation and bouts of aimless wandering amidst the woodsy outdoors.
However, as attractive as the pieces are, the core of the collection still remains in the finely made bags. Emulating the clothing’s aesthetic, the accessories carry a very organic feel in their tweed, leather, and canvas constructions. Expect to find rucksacks fashioned out of a Mexican wool pattern, messenger bags with a dark brown camouflage print, and even tote bags covered in scenic images of deers in the woods.
