BLK DNM Blazer 15

Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld has inherited his mother's eye for quality clothing that defies the passing of trends, pictured below wearing Blazer 15 from BLK DNM at their flagship store at 237 Lafayette Street in New York. BLK DNM by Johan Lindeberg rejects the typical tenets of the fashion world, choosing to focus on a few timeless basics rather than doggedly following the changing seasons of fashion. Centered primarily around denim in black, white, grey, or blue, this androgynous line is noted for its minimalism and its anonymity — the emphasis is on the person, not the garment or the label. Prior to launching BLK DNM, Lindeberg worked with Diesel and William Rast in addition to his own label, J. Lindeberg.

Vladimir's choice, Blazer 15, is a six-button double-breasted jacket created in Croatia using two-ply Italian wool in charcoal grey for the outer layer and Bemberg cotton for the inner lining. The meticulous attention to detail can be seen in the cut, the stitching, and the small touches such as the six corozo buttons and the functioning cuffs. Not everyone can work this six-button look but thankfully Vlad has the torso to carry the jacket with ease. Now I would like to see him in one of BLK DNM's custom leather jackets tailored to that torso...
