Gilbert and Lewis fall/winter 2012 collection


The start of fall in the northern hemisphere means shorts and t-shirts have been packed away and the woolly separates and multiple layers were already pulled out of storage to keep warm on chillier days.

Previously featured in a previous Bello Magazine (download it from iTunes), the fall/winter 2012 collection from Gilbert and Lewis is a reminder why men love to get dressed in cooler months. A reinterpretation of the urban lumberjack; just don’t call him Paul.

Known as the alter egos of designers Jose Abellar and David Ayala, Gilbert & Lewis presents men’s fashion with a modern approach and a vintage twist. In each collection, Gilbert & Lewis pay homage to all-American cinematic characters, a love of travel and vintage fashion.

The latest campaign (photographed by Greg Vaughan and featuring models Daniel Hamaj and William Gajanw) has the handsome pair clad in workwear-inspired garments. Compared to previous seasons, the silhouette is more relaxed and casual. Texture infuses the collection with a feeling of warmth, and although there is a splash of muted colour and pattern, plaid is – thankfully – kept to a minimum.

Designed for the man who doesn’t want to live in a pressed suit all day, Gilbert & Lewis is perfect for those who want to get a little rugged. Visit www.gilbertandlewis.com for more info.
