"胸ポケのお洒落テク" -挿して華やか、開けば「可愛い♪」なポケットチーフを発見した!

リングヂャケットの秋冬展示会に行ったとき、テーブルにさりげなく、これらのポケットチーフが置いてあった。 

「あれ、これはもしや! Mr.SLOWBOYのイラストですか?」と企画担当の奥野さんに尋ねると......。 

「分かりますか~? スローボーイさんのファンだったので、インスタでDM送ったら、リングヂャケットのファンでもあるよということで、描いてもらえることになったんです!」とのこと。

His art is deceptively simple and sneakily sophisticated–with just a few lines he really captures silhouettes and character. Read more

 

 

The Ivy Style

 

What, Me Hurry? An Interview With Menswear Illustrator Mr. Slowboy

 

Over the years, one of the recurring themes at Ivy Style has been the lost art of menswear illustration. From JC Leyendecker’s Harvard jocks of the teens and ’20s to Esquire and Apparel Arts in the ’30s, from Ivy ads in the ’50s and ’60s to contemporary Japanese illustration, we’ve presented it all and many of you are as charmed by the detail and wit as I am. Read more
