INCEPTION | Clothes on Film

 It was ALL a DREAM...or was it?!?
Perhaps the most mind-churning mainstream film of recent years, Inception is testament to the power of great costume design. Not only does it look sumptuous, thanks to all those 3 piece suits and silk ties, but because of costume designer Jeffrey Kurland and director Christopher Nolan’s commitment to clothing serving an implicit function, Inception is at least partially decipherable by what the characters wear. The screen is filled with costume clues to interpret.

GRAHAME G. FOWLER | Made In New York

Sartorial but not stuffy...

"A mix of tailored, working, military, function-at-the-junction mélange."

Grahame G. Fowler
W 10 Shop
138 West 10th Street
New York, NY 10014

After working with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, Ralph Lauren and Brioni, and owning stores in the UK and Japan, Grahame Fowler decided to launch his own West Village menswear boutique in August 2009. Formerly occupied by a Chinese dry-cleaning shop, this is by no means any ordinary men's boutique. Fowler's collection of button-down shirts, suits, outerwear, and knitwear are handmade in New York using only the most wonderful fabrics from England, Italy and Japan and tailored with care, achieving a relaxed elegance which neatly balances casual and formal attire. The tenet of the brand seems to be "exclusivity." Amongst the vintage scooters, furniture, and photos, you'll find a collection of finely curated accessories such as, vintage Rolex and Omega Watches, belts, messenger bags made from old quilts or army tents, shoes and hats. My personal favorites in no specific order seem to be the vintage Belstaff and Barbour jackets, Tricker's boots (they have the exclusive in the U.S.), White's boots (made in USA), vintage CWC and Benrus watches, and last but certainly not the least the 1969 Lambretta scooter parked in the corner. If you happen to be visiting New York or live in the city I strongly urge you to stop by. In the great words of my buddy 'Drew this place is "LIFE CHANGING."

Shout out to Max and Chuka for holding it down and making my trip to NYC a memorable one. Diversity is definitely their university due to their impeccable customer service, uncanny product knowledge, generosity and authenticity.  The website will be up very soon. Stay tuned after the jump.

With that said...Grahame G. Fowler x _______. Spring 2011?
