SOPHNET is one of those Japanese streetwear labels that’s consistent as hell but somehow remains under the mainstream radar. As one of the better kept secrets in fashion outside of Asia, SOPHNET delivers strong staples each year. Fall/Winter 2017 is no exception with another strong lineup of garments. My favorites this time around are the leather bomber, knits and technical outerwear pieces. The hard part is tracking down the items themselves but look for a good selection from SOPHNET over at END.

Sophnet puts out a flashy video previewing it’s Spring/Summer 2016 collection. We saw some of it previously in this SENSE editorial. Fast editing and neon lights are an effective counter to the eye-catching pieces in this collection set to drop online on January 30.

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

Sophnet has celebrating 16 years of existence with a product lineup that features collaborations with the likes of Alpha Industries (fur lined MA-1 anyone?) Stussy and even Vitamix (not joking). Grind Magazine kills the execution as per usual with this effective editorial highlighting key pieces from the collection. The look with the stussy varsity and the leather double riders gets top marks from me. See the rest after the jump.

Sophnet has amazingly been able to stay under the radar while delivering season after season of quality product. While the brand’s aesthetic is far from classy, it is assertive in it’s vision and place in the market. Coming out of the golden era of Japanese streetwear (think BAPE, UC, WTAPS and Neighborhood) Sophnet is a grown man’s update on the same solid street essentials). Just look to key pieces here like that workwear take on a baseball jacket or some of the banging outerwear (the fishtail parka and funnel neck jacket come to mind) to see what the fall collection is all about.

We posted the collection video a few days back, now comes the full photo lookbook. Sophnet really slays this collection in all aspects: styling, presentation and the pieces themselves. Plenty of awesome looks here with the outerwear stealing the show in my opinion. A great varsity, vest and an awesome version of what appears to be a down filled parka. Sophnet continues to deliver in time for colder weather and I can’t wait to see or even grab some of these pieces myself. Don’t own any Soph right now but I figure that will change in the very near future. If you’re looking for a North American stockist, check Haven which should have a selection of FW14. Sophnet continues to hit that perfect balance of refined streetwear that so many brands are trying (and often failing) to reach.

Japanese Label SOPHNET is more than 15 years in the game. In recent years SOPHNET have expanded their empire through it’s sister labels FCRB (a soccer-focused collaboration with Nike) and Uniform Experiment. In presenting it’s Fall/Winter 2014 video, the brand reaches back in time finding inspiration in 90’s music videos. Timed and set to break beats the clothes are secondary to the mood and feeling created through the strobe-like visuals. The gear that is visible tends to focus on the outerwear and accessory side of things. Expect items to begin dropping in retailers next month.

Sophnet presents a close-up look at pieces from it’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection. Sticking to the brand DNA of men’s staples with a twist, there’s an assortment of practical, well-thought out pieces here. Among them are a lightweight down shirt, crewnecks, some really dope flannels and jackest with knit-sleeve detailing and an assortment of denim. The standout piece is the military jacket above which flips a M-65 into a tech piece with knit sleeve inserts. The navy the effect quite subdued. See all the items after the jump

Recent years have shown steady growth for Japan based label Sophnet. The brand has crept into more stores on both North American and European shores, surely part of the plan for Jun Co (who owns Sophnet, Uniform Experiment and F.C.R.B.).

The good news is that the Fall/Winter 2013/14 season is one of the strongest I’ve seen. Heavy on collaborations, the season features pieces designed in unison with Rocky Mountain Featherbed, Danner, Tricker’s, Spectus, Lee, FSF, Canada Goose and New Era. Stylistically the collection has a rugged modern vibe. The pieces look utilitarian without ever seeming too overwrought or overdesigned. Personal favorites for me are the vests, down jackets, and flannels but the whole thing is looking incredibly strong. While cooler weather may be months away, it might be wise to start saving for some investment pieces that you’ll get plenty of wear out of once fall hits.
