Nom de Guerre is back with spring. I loved their fall 2007 and spring 2008 collections, but I failed to see any individual pieces in the fall 2008 collection that left me excited. Continuing with their militant inspiration, this season has a lot dark hyper-masculine "smart" jackets and trousers, but also includes what I would consider "training" inspired gear. A lot of these looks are paired with Nom de Guerre's take on sweats. The complete looks are visually awkward, but I love the sweats on their own. The thick cuff is a nice addition. I'm hoping the accessories see the light of day as they would be interesting additions to any wardrobe.
