Victoria’s Calculus has slowly reinvented itself over the past year, shifting from a curation of moody avant labels to a different kind of boundary-pushing design, focusing instead on slow fashion brands that twist workwear into contemporary collectibles. Garments from thoughtful designers like Evan Kinori, Casey Casey, Jan-Jan Van Essche and Nicholas Daley inform the store’s selection, many of which are seen in a new series of editorials dubbed “Concrete Magnolias.”

Key seasonal wares, like Daley’s garment-dyed, hand-knitted tank top and s.k. manor hill‘s striped Type 100 jacket straddle the line between versatile staple item and statement piece, balanced by billowing hemp jeans from California’s Evan Kinori. Hefty Viberg shoes, the only footwear crafted entirely in Calculus’ native Victoria, further update the blue collar inspiration at the core of the labels, yielding chunky-soled derbies and running sneakers set atop Vibram cushioning systems.

Premium jewelry from The Silver Stone, Casey Casey’s over-dyed work jacket and s.k. manor hill’s puckered adds visual appeal to otherwise understated summer looks, reaffirming the undeniable value of well-made wearables. Warm weather is the ideal time to reach for clothing that blends fine fabrics with effortless cuts; Kinori’s nep-ridden, loosely-tapered jeans underline this conceit.

Elsewhere, Kinfolk spotlighted warm weather items from the likes of NEEDLES, Adsum and Stone Island.
