Clement Taverniti — the man behind Paris-based Still Good — always wanted his own brand, even if it meant starting up in a difficult economic climate. After stints at Kitsune, Dries Van Noten and Homecore, Taverniti is now into his second year with a line he describes as mixing “urban culture with luxury culture.” Still Good’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection continues Taverniti’s vision of combining designer fashion with streetwear, while also looking to artist Barnett Newman for inspiration. Newman’s use of color fields is referenced in this season’s range of geometric prints, mixed-fabric shirts and color-blocked jackets, each one made in Europe from Italian fabrics. Taverniti’s own touch, meanwhile, is apparent in garments like the Double Jacket Sweat, with its sophisticated design and relaxed, French terry construction, and the contrast-lined Ecume pants — pieces that showcase refined style and streetwear details in equal measure.
