11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi AW13

Spanish based Boris Bidjan Saberi is known for his raw industrial aesthetic. Often BBS garments undergo many unconventional treatments (he’s experiment with ¬†tar, transparent leather and even pig-blood-dyes for example) which set his pieces apart from most men’s brands. The ’11’ line is a more affordable, street-ready version of his trademark vision. The pieces are a standard mix of graphic t-shirts, hoodies, and accessories which come in at a much lower price-point than his mainline and made from hard-wearing durable materials like heavy denim and thick canvas.

Oki-Ni just posted a selection of the goods including a range of phone cases, duffles and backpacks that resulted from a collaboration with German technical fabric specialist Ortlieb. Those guys value utilitarianism in design will want to check out this accessories range in particular. The duffle is made with¬†thick PVC and canvas that is both waterproof and durable.¬†The mountain backpack ¬†features two internal pockets ¬†and has a padded back-piece and shoulder straps, for a comfortable and well ventilated fit .The ‘Safe It’ iPhone holder¬†also crafted from waterproof PVC has one clear side, allowing the wearer to view their phone‚Äôs screen. The holder has a rolled Velcro closure and an adjustable lanyard ¬†that can be worn around the neck.

Oki-Ni Styled by David Hellqvist “Techno Tailor Soldier Spy”

Model: Alamantus at Elite
Grooming: Joshua Gibson at Sassoon

In the latest STYLED feature on Oki-Ni PORT Magazine online editor David Hellqvist puts together looks that combine formal tailoring and technical sportswear. As men’s fashion continues to develop in new directions, men are moving past sartorial rules of the past and combining disparate styles to create their own signiture looks. I strongly identify with the idea of ‘techno tailoring’ which David explains below.

Techno Tailoring is all about fusing the best of both worlds. Look at your life; there’s an element of formal strictness, whether you like it or not. You might subscribe to a casual lifestyle but no doubt you’ll need to dress up from time to time. Instead of hiding the crisp formal shirts and well-tailored coats, move them to the front of your wardrobe. Wear them with technologic sportswear. But the key is finding the balance; no-one dresses in stiff, formal and starched collars seven days a week, just as full-on outfits of innovative high performance gear only makes sense on athletes. Neither of them work as one-way versions of your everyday wardrobe. Techno Tailoring is about mixing sporty details with smart looks, about accessorising clever streetwear with well-made and qualitative bits of Savile Row aesthetic.
