Contemporary menswear label Bristol Los Angeles has unveiled its Fall/Winter 2016 collection, offering garments that “juxtapose structure with spontaneity, and refinement with levity.” The inspiration behind the brand’s forthcoming “Collection 002” is two fold: on one hand by the dress of iconic NBA players including Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, and Tracy McGrady and on the other, by the notion that rules and guidelines, such as a uniform or dress code, actually force us to be as creative as ever. The inspiration also has personal roots for the co-founders of the brand Luke Tadashi and Tommy Nowels: “When we were in high school, we both played on the basketball team, and like the NBA, our coaches instituted a mandatory dress code of “shirt and tie” on game days. Similarly, within these restrictions, we found numerous ways of subverting the dress code but still technically wearing a ‘shirt and tie.’”

Take a sneak peak of Bristol Los Angeles’s “Collection 002” in the photo set above, which features relaxed silhouettes in soft hues such as olive and red-brown. Select pieces from Bristol Los Angeles’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection are available here.
