"In typical Outlier fashion when we decided to do a khaki, we dove into hands-on research. We hustled together a selection of technical cottons and started whipping up samples to test ride. There were loads of promising leads, but nothing quite delivered to the level we needed. In the end we wound up doing a full 180 and returned to our core 4Season fabric. From the handfeel to the way it moved, it proved the best option so far (of course we’re always are looking for better.) So we commissioned a special flat tan khaki color and iteration one of the Outlier Khaki was born. With less yellow than most khakis, these pants look better with a wider range of skin tones and can match up with nearly any item in your wardrobe, perfect for a better core garment to build your day around."

"A sneak peak of what's to come from a recent photo shoot I did for the release of the "Ibn Jasper" Quintin hat. That will feature a short film from Nigel Alexander, produced by Yolo/Persona Productions, and co-directed by me. Keep posted for the drop of the video and photos. Also, keep in mind the exclusive hats match the Louis Vuitton Jaspers, so you know they are dope."
One example is the shanghai fabric designed by Zuzunaga for Ligne Roset. In it an interest in color and digital abstraction is apparent. Here the upholstery is found on the Togo sofa, a seat made of polyether foam. Initially, the shanghai fabric developed as a project for 100% Design London, but it will appear again next month at Design Miami.
