It’s an awesome feeling to be part of something new — something creative, and inspiring at the same time. You probably remember Project Cobalt from fashion week this year, when I worked with them to cover the Public School show in New York. It is their goal to connect and support young artists of all backgrounds, and five of their young designers, also called the Craft Class, now presented their first collection: Project Cobalt SS15 Collection. Both the polo shirt and the shorts are from the collection, and their timeless, classic look is representative for the entire collection. For the designers it was all about reviving old favorites in a way that appeals to both men and women, thus creating a unisex collection under the supervision of a few more established designers. I love the dress shorts, and the fabric of the polo shirt is fantastic as well. I topped the polo off with the blazer from yesterday’s post (sorry for wearing that twice in a row :P) and put on my athletic suede slip-on derbies for a casual vibe.
