Julius 09/10 Fall/Winter Lambskin leather gun holster
Julius _7 FW12 preview from H.Lorenzo
Waxed lamb skin funnel collar coat
The wax treatment creates an uneven sheen across the coat which adds such a depth to the leather. I’m very interested to see how this material wears in over time as previous waxed items I’ve owned have always had the most gorgeous aging cycles.

Julius _7 4 pocket leather jacket from Darklands
One detail I’ve always really appreciated from Julius is what they call Gas Mask pockets which can be seen across many of their bags and jackets. It’s seen here in it’s most beautiful iteration which breaks up the usually slim aesthetic of their leathers. This is a piece I’ve lusted over for some time although I see it as being almost too much of a military look for me. The large pockets growing off of the wearers body are accentuated by the gorgeous signature Julius hardware which is another admirable detail from the master Tatsuro Horikawa.
Julius _7 10th Anniversary
A special ring being released for Julius’ 10th anniversary. Available only through certain stores in japan I believe there is an accompanying jewelry line which commemorates the anniversary.
The ring itself looks like it stopped a bullet or was indented during some kind of conflict. Given the aggressive nature it reminds me of past works I’ve seen from the company such as the Tetsuo: The Bullet Man inspired jewelry from past seasons.
Carol Christian Poell high neck gloved cotton Dead End shirt
This is really what I like to see from Carol; subtle alterations to classic garments. What could be a basic button up is extended past what would be the natural fit to encompass both the neck and hands which are usually left bare by such a garment. Besides the obvious aesthetic changes to the garment there are many more hidden details such as the stitching and seams. I’d be really interested to see how the garment feels on the body as that seems to be an integral part of appreciating CCP garments. Dead End has been nothing but top tier Carol from what I’ve seen.
