Folk s/s 2009 Collection

You may have heard of Folk from their collaboration shoes with Kidrobot last year. However they do much more than shoes and actually started their brand with some very nice cut & sewns and knitwear.
Here's a brief preview to their Spring/ Summer 2009 Collection:

Crazy detail as you can see the stitches in the buttons spell FOLK.

Folk Button Up Cardigan
Folk Draw String Cardigan
Folk Elbow Patch Shirt

From Folk:
"The collections are not trend led but are defined by a handcrafted aesthetic that creates simple staple favourites with subtle, fun and quirky detailing that allows their owner to make a statement without having to shout too loudly about it.
Much of the design time is spent on fabric selection with recent collections including Japanese double face cotton shirting, carbon finished jerseywear and Bolivian alpaca knitwear. This combined with detailing such as pointelle, textured tweed stitching and small touches such as corozo nut buttons and Folk Braille zip pullers help define collections that spans shirting, knitwear, wovens, jersey and accessories."

So as you can see these guys are all about the fine details and quality pieces. I'm really loving the s/s '09 collection and the lightweight knits they have, the small details of the full button and draw string addition to the classic cardigans are pretty interesting.

Check out the entire collection at FolkClothing where they have store as well.
