The Letters Fall/Winter 2012 collection takes cues from the dapper Victorian era, creating a look that any hipster or artisan would be at home in. This Japanese brand makes basics with flare. Its use of fur brings out a rich, antiquated charm that elevates the collection to the realm of high fashion. The neutral color palette keeps the Letters Fall/Winter 2012 collection understated, minimalist and modern.

Expert tailoring can be appreciated in the vests, blazers and ankle-length trousers throughout the collection. These fitted pieces that can be dressed up or down are matched with a slim, bearded model to achieve a poetic look. Denim keeps the collection grounded in wearable and enduring clothes, and the recurring brimmed hat gives the collection an eccentric touch.

Admirable as much for its design as its simplicity, the Letters Fall/Winter 2012 collection has hit the nail on the head.
