sjaak hullekes fall winter 2010

this is the first time i am featuring dutch designer sjaak hullekes, but i have a feeling this will not be the last. here are a few preview pics from his upcoming fall winter 2010 collection, entitled "small town boy". the designer wanted to give this collection all the positive and nostalgic feelings a small town can bring, to escape from the daily reality and rush of the city.

i thought the construction and styling were impeccable. i am really excited about their choice of fabrics, very lush. i sense a tiny bit of bottega veneta's influences, but sjaak is his own man. the designer graduated in 2005 from an academy which counts lucas ossendrijver (lanvin) and viktor & rolf as alumnus.

i really really love the color palettes here. they will be presenting in milan too, i can't wait to see the clothes up close. sjaak hullekes is currently sold in the netherlands and japan. i make it my personal mission to get them to sell to the uk, or at least an online shop which delivers to the uk!




  1. I know this is an unrelated comment, but can you do a post on underwear/boxers. I would love to know what your favorites are as there are so many brands to choose from. Oh would you PLEASE.

  2. I'm in love with the look in that first picture. That really is fantastic. I want those pieces.

  3. that last blazer is a great colour. I'm having trouble defining it.....sort of like a pale rust, with a hint of salmon? whatever it is, its nice


what's he wearing?
