The Danes' range of accomplishments boggles the mind -- they inspired whimsical creativity with Lego, terror with the Vikings, and, with their cartoons, whimsical creativity and terror. Now, here comes the new drop from the astonishingly versatile designers at Wood Wood.
Straight out of Copenhagen, Wood churns out everything from subtly altered classic contemporary to borderline-silly streetwear, all envisioned by a trio of Danes who also busy themselves with graphic design, music, and even their own bicycle racing team (their clothes sell fine, so they could totally affjord a car). Highlights from the latest collection include:
The Watson Jacket This short, sports-tailored, wool/nylon/poly navy overcoat is all about pocket variety, arranged with eye-catchingly imperfect symmetry: one button-patch, two red zips, and two slashes edged with leather, but not Edge with leather, because at his age he should really be wearing tweed.
Jackson Shirt Available in everything from blue/white pinstripe to red/green check, this casual dress shirt boasts a single contrasting button down at the waist, taking eyes away from your package and onto your placket. Just kidding, people are still staring at your penis.
Chapman AA Sweater Neatly cut, with a slight elasticated waist, this white-stripes-on-blue cotton jumper features a clubs-symbol, above which dangles an upside-down "AA"; there's also a covert zip-pocket in the side seam, because even right-side-up, AA isn't for everyone.
The line's rounded out with black/khaki "mini twill" (finer weave) Eland 103 Chinos, and tees like the eerily eyeballed white maple leaf dubbed "Ghost" -- the fear of becoming which had Danish cartoonists sh*tting (building) bricks.
