Japanese streetwear experts Sophnet are coming off their 20th anniversary in 2015. They continue their momentum with their seasonal editorial in Japanese magazine SENSE. This time around Spring/Summer 2016 features a mix of more discrete staples (button-ups and trousers) alongside the more street side of things covered by hoodies, crewnecks , and a camo varsity jacket. If you’re looking to pickup pieces, the label really is able to contribute to more standard streetwear type outfits (think denim , hoodies and bombers) as well as mixing with more done-up looks (think of wearing Sophnet with Thom Browne, Visvim or Nanamica). Look for items to be releasing online soon at retailers END Clothing, Haven and Supply Store
I have long enjoyed the look of outdoor brands like Patagonia, but find it a bit hard to incorporate some of their utilitarian pieces into a daily wardrobe. And Wander is amongst a new wave of Japanese brands that aims to create garments that will weather the elements on a camping or hiking trip while fitting gracefully into a fashionable wardrobe. The spring/summer collection continues the minimal, clean design found in past seasons.
As per usual the styling is excellent . The gear itself is able to incorporate lots of useful features while still keeping a great fit that should work well with your existing clothes. The only downside is that distribution still seems quite limited outside of the brands native Japan so you may need to hit your proxy.
Japanese magazine PRODISM covers on upper-echelon streetwear and for their latest issue, the publication has presented an editorial look at Undercover Spring/Summer 2015 collection. We covered the collection previously here. The collection is one that many hardcore UC fans are looking towards as the brand is bringing back many of it’s greatest hits. Many of the designs revisit and re-create key design details from classic UC collections such as ‘But Beautiful’, ‘SCAB’ and ‘Languid’. The editorial is one of the better ones featuring UC pieces this year and it faithfully re-captures many key styles throughout the 13 looks.
