Having already cleared sweatpants’ name of an unfair accomplice of sloth, California’s En Noir is riding the leather wave it helped create with a comprehensive collection of jumpsuits, kilts, jackets & shirts for this season.
Rob Garcia, the brand’s unflinching visionary, shot the Spring 2013 lookbook on Willy Carter. In addition to being Frank Ocean’s maybe-boyfriend, Carter has a vagabond-meets-Aragorn aesthetic that brings the understated elegance of the line’s risky seams, quilted leathers, and angled sleeves into handsome relief.
We’re not going to sit here and tell you that everyone needs to go out and cop this stuff — it’s expensive, and radical. But if you’re on some Kanye/Flacko flow, and you want the game to be done kilt, En Noir Spring 2013 is a good option.
