Browse through Kakáslok's latest lookbook and you’ll find a collection of boxy basic shirts mixed with utilitarian outerwear, perfect for the urban commuter with its numerous pockets and insulating material. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good set of basics as well as editorial images that have a very nonchalant and raw feel to it.
