If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram you may know I attended last Tuesday the launch of Bound Amsterdam. It is an new Dutch clothing brand based in Amsterdam. Bound Amsterdam covers clean ready-to-wear clothing with a minimalist look for the contemporary man. The collection presents neutral colors and subtle textures. Think about: a lot of black and white. That you can combine over and over again. The entire collection is made in Italy. So hello new menswear brand in Amsterdam.
What I like about the SS16 collection is all the items are minimalism and unisex. So of course it’s an menswear brand but also girls can wear these items. Think about the grey sweater, how cool is that for girls a little oversized and you are good to go. Bound Amsterdam is very unique in choosing their fabrics. It’s not just simple cotton, they added some twists to it.
This print in the picture here above is inspired from tattoo art from Indonesia. Where Maras (designer Bound Amsterdam) is born. Also if you see the FW15 collection the SS16 is more improving. But also I liked the color palette from that collection. Of course it’s not a cheap brand. Because of the fabrics and it’s made in Italy (no children involved) you pay something more. Think of the sweater is around €200,-!
I really like to discover new fashion brands, definitely when it’s an new menswear brand. You’ve to keep an eye on Bound Amsterdam, a lot of bloggers and fashion minded people are gonna love this brand.
So let me hear what you think of Bound Amsterdam in a comment below.
