WTAPS always strikes that careful balance of maintaining their aesthetic while bringing out fire variations on the staples they’ve become known for. Fall/Winter 2017 does have quite a few heaters in it. First among which is the tactical field jacket above. It seems the Japanese label has struck a careful balance between a full on militaristic approach and more laid back streetwear staples. Other standouts here include a cowichan sweater, chore coat, and beige parka. Also of note are the Timberland boots in brown suede that is a great take on the staple 6″ boot.

Look for the collection to hit shops including END and Need Supply.

At this point in Shadow Project’s development , the line’s identity has been solidified. Entering into it’s 19th season the label continues to further differentiate itself further from mainline Stone Island. Most notably the fall/winter collection is packed with heavy winter gear. An array of colorful down jackets and graphic patterned bombers grab most of the attention.

In terms of actual function some of the new features include ’Tilt Storage Pockets’, a seperated series of sloped pockets using a single zipper that runs around the entire piece. Also shown are elasticated ‘Articulation Tunnels’, that allow the wearer to adjust the garment’s shape.

Although it’s hard to ignore the new boots and accessories that complete the looks. It seems Errolson Hugh has found his comfort zone and continues to make SISP a universe onto itself. Look for the items to drop on Stone Island’s  online store and online at Farfetch.

Back with another collection the team at Cav Empt released their Fall/Winter 2017 lookbook today. While the spring/summer collection had a club and rave theme, this one takes a more pedestrian approach to showing the clothes. The photography is reminiscent of street style focused with what appear to be street cast models. As for the clothes themselves, the full range of bombers, parkas, sweats, hoodies, graphic tees and even bags are represented. Longtime fans of the label will have plenty to choose from with both heavily graphic items as well as simpler tonal or textured items. Look for items out already on the CAVEMPT website or stockiest like SJS.

Takahiro Miyashita named his spring/summer collection  “Femme Fatale Fellow”. The idea behind the collection was to design the clothes that his dream woman would want to see him in. There is definitely a dark romantic air about this collection with Miyashita returning to his all-time muses – western clothes and rock n’ roll.

There is a also lot of Number (N)ine influence I see in the collection , in particular references from the ‘Noir’ collection. Perhaps Miyashita has returned to his archives to bring back some design concepts. In particular the cowboy shirts and blazers look particularly familiar. Another throwback comes with the homage to the late Kurt Cobain with the “We will always love you Kurt” text embellished onto the back portion of many garments.
