Spring/Summer stock is starting to roll in to BBlessing‘s online store. Known for stocking hot US brands like Patrick Ervell, Adam Kimmel and Rag and Bone, BBlessing’s own line is definitely worth checking out. Attention to detail is always spot on and the quality of the garments needs to be experienced to really appreciate their unique take on streetwear meets formality.
The latest BBlessing collection inspired (with typical obscurity) by ‘the mythology surrounding the legend of plane-hijacker DB Cooper’ comes in a rich colour palette of blues, greens, washed greys and tans, more tangibly ‘inspired by the textures and tones of the Pacific Northwest’.
Stand-out pieces include the selvedge denim jacket – made formal by being lined – and these beautiful, pleated linen shorts.
The physical store with it’s crack-pipe chandeliers and American Gothic aesthetic is a must-see stop-off if you really want to experience the excitement of the menswear scene in New York. Right in the heart of the hipster-centric Lower East Side it doesn’t get any better, though their website offers a great taster and a good shopping experience in itself.
