The New Tastemakers: MATIERE (Scot Shandalove & Jake Zeitlin)


A fresh crop of talented young visionaries with something to say, and the sartorial vocabulary to say it, are giving menswear a welcome jolt. We get to know the New York-based designer currently causing a commotion.

What's different about fashion today?
Technology. It provides the tools for bolder fashion--meaning smart clothing. It allows us to approach fabrics in innovative ways.

What's your goal as designers?
We like to excite guys with subtle details, unexpected textures, and new techniques within our contemporary aesthetic -- like an alpaca jogger pant paired with an easy henley.

If you could revive any fashion trend in history, what would it be?
Modernism, for its integration of comfort and function into fashion. It was simple but exciting, and had a huge influence on 1990s minimalism. The spirit of these periods is helping revive unisex fashion.

Describe your brand's aesthetic in three words.
Considered, textured, functional.
