Female Editorial - Carhartt WIP, Converse, Edwin, Ray-Ban

While Fat Buddha Store is predominately a menswear store, it's hardly a recent trend to see more and more women incorporating streetwear elements into their wardrobe. That's why for this week's look we have used a female model to show our Spring/Summer 2015 garments in a whole new light and showcase to our female shoppers how to adapt streetwear into their closet. 

In this editorial we have focused on two distinct looks and demonstrated how you can mix, match and accessorise to achieve different aesthetics. We've have mainly selected brands, such as Carhartt WIP and Vans, that we know have been popular with our female clientèle in the past and utilized unisex accessories such as Ray-Ban sunglasses and Carhartt's iconic Watch Hat.

The first look features Carhartt's new Autumn/Winter State Coach Jacket and is also teamed with their regular fit Dander Pants, whose regular cut make a sleek change to the slimmer fit usually seen in womenswear. The navy and white colour palette is broken up with hits of grey on the Converse and maroon on the Watch Hat.

The second look is based around the Carhartt Michigan Jacket layered over a white base t-shirt. We have selected Edwin ED-80 denims as the slimmer cut is flattering to a feminine shape, the look is finished off with the Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses and a Carhartt Watch Hat.

Check out the looks below! All products featured are available in store and online at Fat Buddha Store. For full specs on the products featured please see the product details below.

The Michigan coat returns for SS15 in an unlined version of the Carhartt classic making it ideal for Summer and holidays abroad. Built from a lightweight Hubard canvas cotton, the jacket features 3 open patch pockets as well as a buttoned chest pocket.

Surprisingly it can be quite difficult to get a plain t-shirt right but as usual Carhartt have it covered in the form of the Base tee. Made from a soft jersey cotton, the Base tee delivers a premium wardrobe staple that won't warp or contort when washed. Subtle Carhartt branding can be found printed near the hem.

This is the Watch Hat in Heather Grey from Carhartt. This is a 100% acrylic rib knit hat which features the Carhartt logo on the front.
Ray-Ban & Wayfarer are the two words that go together, when you think of a classic sunglass shape, the Wayfarer is the one that comes to mind.  A fully acetate frame with 100% UV protection, the Wayfarer is the design that will never go out of fashion. When it comes to choosing a pair of sunglasses the Wayfarer is a style that works with every outfit, chinos in the summer or suited up, this is the Tortoise // Crystal Green Polarized lens option. Polarized lens's will make a huge difference when faced with early morning light, when driving and hit with sun glare, te polarized will adapt to the light and leave you oblivious to it and make te driving experience a bit better, if you drive a lot then you really need to stick with the polarized lens
One of the more modern instalments from Edwin arrives in the form of the ED-80, a slim fitting jeans with a tapered leg which sits comfortably on the hip for a relaxed fit. This 11.5oz denim is unwashed and is made from Edwin's newest white listed selvedge making these ED-55's a contemporary classic.
Just dropped from Vans is this beautiful reissue of their classic Old Skool CA low top skate shoe. The shoe is constructed of premium materials such as cream dyed premium cow suede and off-white 10 oz. duck canvas. Subtle detailing adds to the look with off-white woven laces and a crisp white rubber sole.
The Dander pant from Carhartt brings us a slightly tapered chino made from a cotton/polyester blend and features a low crotch for unrestricted movement. The Dander benefits from Bartack stitching across key stress areas is complimented by a stitched square Carhartt logo on the reverese pocket.
The Watch hat is an iconic classic from Carhartt and has been for many years due to its simple appearance and solid acrylic build. The hat also has an adjustable cuff and features the classic square Carhartt logo stitched on the front.
