The Beginning of THE/END


THE/END's Leather Jacket

Born from a desire to fill a hole in the menswear market,THE/END‘s Fall ’13 launch aims to satisfy a sartorial need. “We were looking for something new to wear that bridged that gap between the heavy amount of heritage in the market and the real avant-garde things happening,” design coordinator (and founder of the much-loved but now defunct Ecco Domani Award-winning brand Corpus) Jerrod Cornish offered. The result is a premium men’s collection that offers denim, leather, and knits, but still maintains an intriguing edge. “It really isn’t too to the right or too to the left,” said Cornish, who designs the new line alongside Mathew Mickel.

Bowing to heavy local demand (their design studio and some manufacturing is based in in L.A.), THE/END team—which also includes art director Cody Comrie and his brother Michael, who handles the business side—has paired with American Rag for an exclusive collaboration. Set to debut tonight in L.A., the collection is, in part, a preview of the brand’s forthcoming Fall wares—tees, fleece pieces, and a men’s jewelry range will all be on offer. But the highlights of the union are a nubuck moto jacket and vest, which were made specially for the retailer. There are only three pieces of each style, and with their thick zippers, sharp collars, and sturdy hardware, the leather looks give potential clients a strong sense of THE/END’s vintage-meets-fresh aesthetic.

THE/END x American Rag ranges from $59 to $1,299 and will be available at the retailer’s La Brea Avenue L.A. flagship starting tonight.

The Corpus Crowd


Ecco Domani winners Jerrod Cornish and Keith Richardson brought their L.A.-based Corpus collection to New York for the first time yesterday. Packed with cool kids including fellow designer Catherine Holstein, their presentation at the Bowery Hotel had a partylike vibe. “We met when we did an installation together in Canada a couple of years ago,” Holstein said of her connection. “We have a huge amount of respect for each other’s work.” While Holstein was in her fashion fan-girl state, she told us the other collections she’s been keeping her eye on: Proenza Schouler (“because they’re so incredible.”), Ohne Titel (“I think it’s honestly one of the best things to come out of New York in a long time.”), and Alexander Wang (“How can you not love him?”). Cornish and Richardson were excited to bask in their own post-show glow. “I feel good. I’m relieved and happy,” said Richardson, who will now have time to enjoy his favorite New York activity. “I just like waking up and walking to get coffee. I don’t walk a lot in L.A.”
