Minimalist fashion, high quality tailoring and luxurious fabrics. This is definitely one of my favourite fashion brands.

The S/S 2012 collection is inspired by 60s Mod-style, which is pure Whyred, and poster art from 1920s Russia. The outfits combine army-influenced parkas and M65 jackets with several shades of red.
