I previously covered Dominate Jakarta, announcing it as one of the most exciting brands coming out of Indonesia. The team at Dominate is back for a Spring/Summer 2018 offering , releasing a lookbook that draws inspiration from different musical movements. The focus this time around shifts from the 70’s punk seditionairies movement as well as reggae music.  These musical influence is sprinkled throughout the collection itself which also focuses  on outerwear, graphic T-shirts, long-sleeve crewnecks and printed button-down shirts. My personal favorite item from the collection is the khaki and olive  nylon pullover. For more info on the products check out their Instagram. Click through for more images.

As Shadow Project continues to distinct itself from mainline Stone Island, the SS18 collection brings one of the brightest, most colorful collections yet.  The label has taken inspiration from two central ideals for the season “expression through removal” and “opacity and transparency.” Certainly these appear throughout pieces in the line. This appears in the form of repeated print patterns and thin breataable fabrics. These include durable NASLAN as well as LUCID FLOCK, a translucent and ultra lightweight nylon material.  My personal favorite is the purple iridescent parka which is sure to catch looks. Look for the collection available at Stockists including END and Farfetch.

The theme of Raf’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection was inspired by the original Blade Runner film. The presentation itself in New York was done outside, re-creating the neon-lit back alleys that more resembled a movie set than a runway. The items are now arriving in-stores and feature a whole range of pieces from outerwear to shirting, pants, sneakers and accessories including printed lamps with Peter Saville graphics. Long-time fans of Raf will recognize the return of familiar Saville prints from past collections as well ranging from the Joy Division album artwork to the New Order Power,Corruption and Lies floral graphic. Shop the collection at Antonioli which featured a large buy from the season.

If I were to name the most consistent brands when it comes to delivering well-styled lookbooks each and every season, nanamica would be at the top of that list. For it’s spring/summer 2018 collection the Japanese menswear specialists deliver on their promise of “minimal design with maximum functionality.”  Of note is the  great use of khaki and olive green in the collection, blended together with black and tan items. Technical fabrics used include GORE-TEX and PERTEX but it’s styled nicely as they are worked in with pieces that use natural materials as well. Look for pieces to drop early next year at international stockists for the label including END and Blue Button Shop.

For COMME des GARÇONS HOMME’s Plus line, designer Junya Watanabe tweaked the standard Comme formula just a bit. Spring/Summer 2018 is an easy to wear collection of traditional suiting mixed in with sportswear-infused items. There are plenty of utilitarian details on the water repellant spring jackets. The color palette ranges from neutral greys, to black and accent colors of blue and red. Even if you don’t get any of the pieces, this is summer dressing done well.
