Introducing Fall Winter 2015 by WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie
WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie present its latest collection and inspiration that lies ahead for Fall/Winter 2015, a galactic voyage with transcendental themes and influences carefully balanced by the brand’s calculated design, clean lines and classic aesthetic.
Drawing parallels between the past, the present, and how both inform our future, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie co-founders Byron and Dexter Peart were inspired to construct a universe of their own where technology and science blend with simplicity and modernity. Remaining true to the classic design the brand is known for, the Pearts adorn their streamlined silhouettes with innovative treatments—matte and metallic leathers, exotic skins and textured finishes—effectively transforming timeless styles into something entirely new to discover. Plush fabrics, soft lines and a dreamy color palette further soften the collection, evoking optimism and depth for the upcoming season. The result is a collection that feels refreshingly new while still retaining a timeless quality.
Iconic products such as the O’Hare tote and the Kastrup backpack return this season, this time reimagined in rich wools, quilted nylons and intricate jacquards. Innovative fabrics give a subtle nod to adventure, space and the unknown while still remaining classic and familiar. The Dumas glove makes its debut this season, featuring a luxurious quilted leather exterior – the ideal accessory for crisp winter days.
Fall/Winter 2015 marks the second season of footwear for WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie. The collection has expanded from two key styles to seven, incorporating entirely new styles as well as variations on current styles, such as the Lennon Mid and Montoro high. As would be expected from the brand, not only style but also comfort and function are central to the footwear collection; from the uniquely designed toe-cap on the Lloyd, to the clever yet stylish zipper on the Montoro high which makes it perfect for effortless travel.
This season, explore the WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie collection that considers past and present and uniquely fuses them together to create a futuristic aesthetic transcending time and trends.
