Common Projects are the latest brand to fulfil my current fetish for plain trainers. We’ve featured a pair of their trainers before, but it’s only fair to give the whole brand the once over. Common Projects is the brainchild of Prathan Poopat, former art director for V and Visionaire magazine, and Flavio Girolami, a consultant for several Italian brands.

Their outlook towards the footwear and marketing is one of minimalism as they avoid advertising or complicating their designs. This allows their trainers a timeless appeal which allows them to look regardless of what time of year it is. If you want your trainers to simply complete your outfit instead being the best part of it, Common Projects are the way to go. You can get some of their new range on Oki-Ni, with prices starting from £159.

John Smedley Polo shirt

So, you’ve decided to go nautical this season – good choice. Most of the pieces are pretty timeless on their own and together it’s a look that won’t be copied by many, allowing you some individuality. The absolute best thing about the nautical look is that you’re spoilt for choice from the waist down. Finding the perfect top to finish off your look can be a quite a challenge but John Smedley aim to make the task easier with this Polo
shirt
.

The only way this top could be any more nautical is if it came with a sailor’s cap and keys to a boat. And at £122 you could say that it ought to come with these extras as standard. If the price doesn’t put you off, then you can get it from the official John Smedley website.
