Martin Asbjørn

Storm exclusively presents five caps from Martin Asbjørn, who is out with his SS18 collection, “My Business is Pleasure”. 
 
The collection takes its starting point from the early 80’s, when a new era of menswear was born. Thanks to films like American Gigolo, gone were the stiff, restricting silhouettes that had been the norm for decades and we were presented with a more laid-back and effortless style. The film’s protagonist, Julian Kaye’s character, who took particular pleasure in dressing became that of an icon. 
 
Like all Martin Asbjørn’s collections, they are defined by his emphasis on tailoring, material choices and attention to detail. "The real trick to Kaye’s ineffable style in American Gigolo was all in the details, from the lazily rolled up sleeve and the suit jacket swung nonchalantly over a shoulder. How could we forget Kaye’s regime of hanging from the ceiling of his LA apartment hotel doing crunches in soft grey shorts?”
 
Martin Asbjørn followed the continuation of 80’s fashion into the early 90’s, finding influences in the bold colours and emphasis on sportswear, with oversized sweatshirts and hues of pastel.

Timothy Han - The Decay of the Angel

Now Timothy Han is launching the first edition of his third fragrance entitled "The Decay of the Angel" - a unisex fragrance. A rich and exotic burnt floral fragrance with a subtle headiness that comes from desire infused by flowers on the wane. Inpired by Yukio Mishima's 1971 novel of the same name, these are the final longings of a descending angel.

Explore our Timothy Han scents here.

Timothy Han, the creative director behind TH/E, explains:

"This is a take on a rose floral that will divide opinion. By introducing dark undertones of sex and ash to what is often seen as a traditional and safe scent, we are creating a perfume for the outspoken.”

The perfumes are handcrafted and comes in small production runs, assigning each batch an edition number: which makes the perfumes limited. Botanical ingredients vary from year to year due to seasonal influences such as temperature or rainfall. These small variations can alter the fragrance materials. The brand choose to celebrate these variations by allowing customers to easily identify which batch their bottle of perfume came from via an edition number prominently displayed on the box.
