Fall is officially here. In most parts of the world, the temperature has started to dip. With the changing of the seasons also comes the ability to add layers to your wardrobe and to perhaps add some new outerwear. We’ve decided to help you out and rounded up a few of our favourite pieces that have come in so far this season. See the slides below for part 1 of our Fall 2013 outerwear highlights.

Continuing from the previous nonnative Dweller Pant product profile, we are again featuring the subtle yet thorough details by the Japanese clothier. The SS13 footwear lineup including the perfect summer shoes in the Drifter Suede Deck Shoes, and the timeless Dweller Trainer Hi and Deck Shoes.
The Spanish-made “Drifter” Suede Deck Shoes
The perforated cow suede upper maximizes ventilation and lightens the weight of the shoe (13.3oz) without compromising the quality.
The reinforced genuine leather ankle collar and insoles increase comfort and durability.
The hand-stitching around the midsole adds authenticity and the hemp woven heel and midsole strengthen the structure of the shoe.
The integrity and the stability of the outsole is displayed as it is able to withstand bending without distorting the shape of the shoe.
The Japanese-made “Dweller” Trainers Hi and Deck Trainers
The signature round shoelaces equipped on all nonnative trainers allow easier untying motion as well as preventing the twisting of the laces.
The smaller toe caps and bulkier outer wrap designs pay tribute to the classic 1970’s Converse Chuck Taylor silhouette.
The faded effects on the overdyed canvas and metal eyelets bring some vintage quality to the shoe.
The siping pattern and the gum outsole allow additional traction.
Removable insole provides extra comfort and the elastic band between the tongue and the sole maintains the integrity and shape of the shoe.
All nonnative footwear is available now in-stores and online.

Last week the HAVEN buying team was in Tokyo for a couple of exhibitions. Among them was a new favourite to the shop, Hender Scheme. We took a trip over to the Hender Scheme offices in Setagaya, Tokyo and met with founder and designer Ryo Kashiwazaki. His “hommage” line of sneakers has been a very successful due to it’s design element of “growing” and aging more beautifully over time, which is in opposition to the image of sneakers that are usually worn in then thrown away.

Ryo explained that this unique pen holder is on display the Tokyo museum of modern art and is modelled after the shoes Charlie Chaplin wore.

They also produce traditional Japanese houseware products such as this small coin collector.
