Tim Hamilton makes his second appearance on R29 today, we heart him that bad. Not only is he a stud, his spring '11 lookbook proves his genius for producing subtle but edgy clothes hasn't gone anywhere. Building on his signature themes of tradition and transgression, Hamilton's precise tailoring and eye-catching silhouettes get amped up with a dose of austerity juxtaposed with rich textures and luxe fabrications. Inspired by the contemporary artist Michaël Borremans, Hamilton's technical ability shines through in tonal neutral pairing, Japanese milled dyes, and, in a sartorial wink to traditional suiting, shaved lapels, leveled shoulders, and unexpected materials. Who knew austere could be so awesome?
