Ruffian designers, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, to create a menswear line for Macy’s. The collection will be under the label Threads & Heirs. Wolk and Morais will design for Threads & Heirs Spring 2010 and Fall 2010 collections and another guest designer will take over in 2011. Affordability and designer looks can be yours for just $24-99.
So what can you expect from these womenswear designers best known for their understated glamour? The designers tell WWD that the collection will be inspired by Williamsburg, Brooklyn "a hotbed of art culture. It's very Americana, Fifties and Beat-inspired mixed with punk…blazers, short-sleeve plaid button-downs, and knit-woven combinations such as a classic knit polo with a plaid collar. There are also striped dress shirts with white collars, four-pocket cotton jackets with band collars and linen shirts with pocket details and pleating." So hopefully a far cry from the unfortunate and prevalent Hipster looks of the Burg.
