“A Story for Tomorrow” – Introducing T.Lipop For Spring/Summer 2014

Founders of  T.Lipop, Tom Lipop and business partner Eser Aydemir, set out to create menswear with a single ethos, ‘Cut is Everything.’ Launched in 2011,  the label was subsequently selected as one of Selfridges’s Bright Young Things with Dazed & Confused and are the latest to collaborate with high street chain River Island. This fresh collection for Spring/Summer 2014 carries a distinct laid-back vibe, Tom Lipop describes “chilin’ in the Spanish Riviera by the pool sipping on your margarita and puffing away on a cigar.” For those of you who have never engaged in such activities, we’re told the appropriate attire includes slim fit, pocket-less suits, linen shirts and jersey tees coated with a “Nano bloc” water-repellent finish and ventile cotton sports jackets. Mixing ’80s slickness with modern technical fabrics and cutting techniques, details are key and include raw edges, hidden embroideries, leather covered buttons, laser cut pockets and bonded zips. With stockists including  Assembly NY, Odenn, Anma Group, Mahani and Gr8, get to know the brand in our gallery.
