Caesy sent over a few of his images for Fall & Winter 2012 yesterday and though I've seen some items floating around out there, I wasn't prepared for such a well thought out collection. He's expanded the already solid line of hand made leather goods and wares, but in a way that truly speaks to the progress of the brand without going way over the top. I knew he was going to do something incredible with the fabrics he has been working on for a little while now, it was only a matter of time until it made its way out onto the front lines. Most notably is his take on the varsity jacket with a quilted floral lining made exclusively for DDG in Portland, as well as a couple of ball caps cut by Quintin Co. in LA. He kept the application of quilted materials going with this quilted backpack in a new shape and in three colours. Nice work Caesy, I'm impressed.
