An example of subtle cold weather style.
Les Benjamins

While outside the weather might not support such purchases, indoors shops and online retail agencies are slowly stocking up with Autumn Winter 14’s favourites; Palaska is one of ours.

Made of wool and polyamide jersey by the label Les Benjamins – the creation of one Bunyamin Aydin – the Palaska jacket boasts a selection of textures (evidently) and exposed zips (a brief punk echo), across a subtle navy canvas.

With a further nod to fisherman jumpers and donkey jackets, plus a slight schoolboy sensibility too – each by way of colour association – this Les Benjamins’ piece covers most ground, but manages to come out not an ugly mash up of male jacket trends, indeed, quite the opposite is true.
