guerrilla group ss15 4 Guerilla Group SS15 End of Secrecy Lookbook & Campaign

I’ve been watching the evolution of GFIRMG since the the creative team’s first foray into accessories with Silent Whisper. Since then the line has expanded from just accessories, to the t-shirt focused EYES&SINS to what is now the fullest expression of GFIRMG’s capabilities – Guerrilla Group. The new season once again draws from familiar sources – obscure action and sci-fi films, video games and anime but re-configures them in unexpected new ways. The Spring/Summer 2015 collection is entitled ‘The End of Secrecy’ and is a take on how the age of digital surveillance and  expanded technological capability have presented the greatest affront yet to nature and man’s place within it.

This is all heavy stuff for a clothing line to express but luckily, the development in concept has also resulted in a leveling up of the functionality of the garments. The new line includes the use of custom synthesized fabrics, EAGLETEX® and ECOYA®, that are laminated and post processed with Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating for adaptation of various environments, adding to overall mobility and versatility. Even simple stalwarts like the coaches jacket and cargo pants are reimagined with little details altered and customized. Graphics have also played a huge role in GFIRMG’s past designs and once again feature prominently here. Not all items have been released online as of yet but a small selection has already been put up for sale through the GG site.

slamjam undercover ss15 editorial 2 560x840 Undercover SS15 Editorial   Slam Jam Socialism

Celebrated Italian retailer Slam Jam Socialism presents their take on the Undercover Spring/Summer 2015 collection.  Religious reference and renaissance paintings have been part of UC designer Jun Takahashi’s repertoire for some time now and this editorial investigates this inspiration at the source. The Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of San Luca was selected as the backdrop for this photoshoot. Situated on top of the hills around Bologna, the well-worn stonework effectively contrasts the current UC collection.

If you’ve caught the news at all over the past week, tensions have risen in Baltimore resulting in clashes between protestors, rioters and police.

phenomenon 2015 fall winter lookbook 2 Phenomenon FW15 Lookbook

phenomenon 2015 fall winter lookbook 3 Phenomenon FW15 Lookbook

Japanese label Phenomenon is associated with it’s trademark wild styling and standout maximalist pieces. The label has refined this formula and created a more unified look in the last few collections. This is very evident in it’s fall/winter 2015 selection and I can safely say that many of these pieces will be grail-worthy. The collection is very on trend with what’s going on in Japan but the execution ensures pushes it above and beyond what many brands are putting out. Some of the real bangers include the above shearling, a MA-1 inspired poncho and distressed denim. The styling here is also impecable with a mixture of lengths, textures and details. Respect to Phenomenon to putting out what might be their best collection to date and a lookbook worthy of further investigation. Find current season Phenomenon over at SSENSE.
