ACNE (Sweden) Tailored Blazer

Cool clothing with an attitude: That’s ACNE, defined. Swedish design house ACNE’s creations have been charming the fashion circles since 1996 thanks to their inspired Scandinavian style – minimalist, utilitarian, limited colour palette, not-trying-too-hard.
A relaxed take on a classic menswear tailoring, this light-weight sky-blue denim-effect blazer is a perfect illustration of the ACNE aesthetic. Wear it to the office - and beyond - with a lace tank and skinny pants.
(RRP US$570 / £360)

New Brand Alert: SILVANO SASSETTI Footwear (Made In Italy)

A common misconception is that established brands - even world-famous ones - make their own shoes. Well, wrong. On the contrary, most brands have anonymous factories manufacture their shoes for them. Silvano Sassetti happens to be one such shoe-maker -- one of the finest in the whole of Italy, who has been producing shoes for the biggest names around the world (example: Gucci) since the mid-90s.
Having learned shoe-making  from master craftsmen at the tender age of 13, founder Silvano Sassetti graduated from apprentice to small workshop-owner in 1977. (The place eventually grew into the present shoe factory in Monte San Pietrangeli in 1996.) Today, using only premium leather material and unparalleled processing skills, Sassetti wields the art of shoemaking like no other, and his namesake line has been described as ‘the summit of class’. Favoloso!

Whoop! is an official stockist of Silvano Sassetti.

The success of Silvano Sassetti’s creations lies in the flawless craftsmanship and sleek classic design. Made in Italy with a full leather construction, these handsome shoes will make the perfect, confident foundation to your repertoire.
Sure to suit the dress code for a host of occasions, they can be dressed up with a refined tailored suit for an instantly sharp finish, or more casually with dark selvedge jeans/chinos.
(RRP €329.00 - 349.00)
