Initially started in Italy in 1983 by Rome based Wicky Hassan, popular denim brand Energie originally focused just on clothes but more recently have recognised the ever growing trend in men’s fashion for cool urban accessories. Energie really came into their own from 1989 when Renato Rossi was brought on board and the signature Energie style of urban cool really started to show. Energie’s focus on research has meant an emphasis on materials and quality that really shines through in their design and accessories.
Energie accessories include all the men’s classic items of bags, wallets, belts hats and scarves as well as some more unusual pieces such as foulards and braces. The Energie desire to create something which is new and innovative creates a strong denim and urban style that also hints as vintage textures. The Autumn Winter 2010 range of Energie accessories for men focuses on an edgy hip style, taking inspiration from a wide range of sources such as 80’s rock music, the city streets and the army.
Other men’s fashion brands which have also recognised the desire by men for fresh, design led accessories are top-end high street names such as Ted Baker, Fred Perry, French Connection and Diesel. For example, the on-trend lifestyle focus of Diesel accessories has really tapped into the need for cool on trend accessories. Still on trend but taking a more classic retro tinged edge, Fred Perry bring preppy cool to their selection of accessories of satchel bags, belts and wallets.
We are in a really exciting time for men’s accessories, and the chilly weather is the perfect time to check out the best of this season’s hats, scarves, ties and belts to keep you tucked in warm, looking stylish and on trend.
