LOOKBOOK: THE IVY CLUB

With a fascination of the stylish style of the Ivy League Universities back in the 50s and 60s we decided to take a trip to Frederiksborg Castle with good friends and try to recreate the elegant yet casual vibe.

As our name might suggest, we are very much inspired by the styles coming out of the Ivy League Universities back in the 50’s and 60’s. We have browsed through Teruyoshi Hayashida’s book ‘Take Ivy’ numerous times and are continuously drawn to the effortless cool take the students had on style and menswear back then.

With this in mind it was a natural step for us to try to fill these shoes out and recreate the vibe from this stylish time. With good friends of the house, we went to Frederiksborg Castle and its amazing surroundings to make the lookbook titled ‘THE IVY CLUB’. Of course styled in true Ivy League-style: Penny Loafers, Oxford Shirts, Striped Ties, Grosgrain Belts, Dad Caps and more.

 

THE STYLE OF THE IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSITIES IS UNIQUE IN MANY WAYS. ESPECIALLY HOW THE STUDENTS LOOKED EFFORTLESS COOL AND CASUAL DESPITE WEARING A BLAZER AND A TIE.

 

THERE ARE SOME ITEMS THAT ARE INEVITABLE TO THE 'IVY STYLE'. AMONG THESE ARE PENNY LOAFERS, OXFORD SHIRTS, STRIPED TIES AND DAD CAPS.

 

 

FOR US, FREDERIKSBERG CASTLE WAS THE PERFECT PLACE TO RECREATE THE IVY VIBE WITH ITS BEAUTIFUL AND HISTORICAL SORROUNDINGS.
