Three Over One debuts their look for spring/summer 2011. The menswear line found abundant inspiration in the “Small Trades” photography collection by Irving Penn — a 1950/51 collection of over 200 black and white photographs of tradespeople and their tools. As Penn’s project sought to capture a way of life that he felt was disappearing, Three Over One imbues this line with a similar sense of nostalgia and utility. For those unfamiliar with “Small Trades,” get a quick overview here, courtesy of the NYT.
