I don't usually blog about menswear, but Native Son is a new collection that I am loving!!!
I discovered the brand at the Guild show in Las Vegas last Feb. and was impressed with it's quality and refined look. And, of course, I had to interview designer Kyle Fitzgibbons on the spot to feature it in the Apparel News' New Resources guide. The idea behind the line is to create investment pieces that can be worn five to 10 years from now - all with a high fashion twist. For Spring 2010 Fitzgibbons, a former assistant at Band Of Outsiders, has added some amazing new fabrics including the striped suiting featured above. The collection is produced in the some of the same factories as Rodarte, Rag & Bone and Band of Outsiders. The exclusive launch kicks off in Japan at Beams International Gallery in two weeks and was just picked up by Opening Ceremony for Spring.
Expect to see more from this bright new talent!
