The Summer Lookbook

Drake's in Seoul: A Conversation with Dongmin Shin

A short drive from the polished streets/catwalks of Gangnam, late afternoon sunshine filtering through the taxi window, we arrive at a house that doubles as the headquarters of IAB STUDIO; the sort of manicured building that looks like it could be occupied by an affluent family with a small white dog and a new BMW.

A Return to Seoul

Over a few days in early summer we returned to Seoul, city of 10 million people and, possibly, even more barbecue restaurants. Over the years it’s become something of a second home for Drake’s, a great, sprawling, evolving metropolis that takes time to properly reveal itself, full of countless friends and old favourites. A good time guaranteed.

Penny for Your Thoughts: A Guide to the Penny Loafer

While the Crosby is our vision of the perfect year-round shoe, for summer, only a loafer will suffice.

Pairing equally with denim as with cotton and linen tailoring, to opt for a loafer is to embrace the season. 

Characteristically, the loafer is a lace-less, low-worn shoe, similar to the moccasin but for a separate sole and heel. Worn casually, the original intention being a “house-shoe” of sorts one could easily slip on and off.
