Needles Spring/Summer 2015 Lookbook

January 27th, 2015


Making its debut at END. for the new season, Nepenthes-imprint Needles bear a truly unique aesthetic with their cut and sew approach to classic Americana pieces that is not short of a detail or two.

The range for S/S’15 builds upon this distinctive look. Laidback chambray shirting, linen jackets and relaxed military-inspired legwear are teamed with patchwork outerwear and accessible jersey, all of which are manufactured to Nepenthes’ exacting standards.
