You know that sweater that has dwelled in the shadowy depths of your drawer for several years now? Or that shirt that still hangs in your wardrobe unworn because the fit isn’t right but it was a gift so you can’t quite bring yourself to throw it out? Well Delikatessen’s AW13/14 collection is so wearable- and so damn sumptuous to touch- it might just compel you to finally toss them to the garbage.
Amsterdam locals Andre Lisowski and Stephen Hartog founded the label in 2009. Each passing collection has taken a step closer to what men want to wear right now and probably for some seasons to come too. The comfy, ‘I’ve had it for years’ quality is down to the rigorous crafting process, wherein each piece is pre-washed and pre-shrunk to fit. Since the brand’s inception, only the finest Giza 87 and Mako cottons have been used which are notorious for being the softest available yearns in the world.
Delikatessen circa AW13/14 is awash with intuitive colour combinations that feel both fresh and classic; the cobalt check shirt and cognac chino is our fave. Vibrant blue pieces feature throughout the collection and, thanks to the simplicity of the designs, were made to be layered together for a causal take on tonal dressing. For those who have been searching for the perfect piece of outerwear to segue from winter to spring, the grey bomber jacket made from pure boiled wool is an awesome investment.
