New Brand Alert: THOM KROM (Germany)

A former trend scout/cool-hunter for international European fashion brands spanning a decade, German-born Thomas Kromik’s constant travels across the world’s fashion metropolises ensured that he developed a great sensitivity for visual influences.

Crafted with minimal avant-garde touches, this range of everyday menswear staples from the Thom Krom Spring 2013 Collection features soft, premium cotton and the textured appearance of unfinished edges.
Team them with slim-fit black jeans and boots to bring laid-back cool into your urban line-up.
(RRP £50 - £60)

Thom Krom is based in Hannover, Germany and is being sold only by exclusive multi-label retailers worldwide, including wondermomo.
