The Kooples

How to layer for winter? Good question, because more clothes = more decisions. For inspiration and guidance, we asked Senior Stylist Jodi Taylor to dress model musician Ryan Neighbors and give us a note on her thought process. This is outfit one of four.

For being out in the elements:

Try a combination of textures with a subtle print while staying in a subdued color palette. In this case a rubbery jacket, chunky sweater and plaid shirt offer a diversity of feels while being tied together by colors you would find in a forest.

Few things call to mind the fleeting nature of summer quite like the sudden arrival of fall designer collections. Yesterday, the weather officially turned warm here at our Seattle HQ; today, we’re staring down buffalo plaid shirts, Fair Isle sweaters and leather jackets from brands like The Kooples.

The Paris-based label tapped Grammy-winning directors Fred&Nick to set the tone for the coming season. The resulting short film, titled Today, Tonight, is inspired by London’s fabled Ace Cafe—a 24-hour hole-in-the-wall where rival motorcyclists in the 1950s and ’60s congregated to fight over girls, hear jukebox tunes that radio stations wouldn’t play, swill tea with milk and sugar, and settle disputes on the road in 100-mph races.

Check out the teaser clip above, then keep reading to watch the full-length version, update your Fall wardrobe for day and night—and see how The Kooples can help you find your soul mate.
