banal chic bizzare FW13

It seems the best men’s brands from Tokyo just keep coming up increasingly ridiculous names. In this mountaineering inspired collection from Banal chic bizzarre I see a slight Raf Simons influence. The bright colors are a welcome departure from the more muted tones most men’s brands choose for fall/winter collections. The futurist vibe is toned down through the outerwear which appropriates visual/styling elements from 90s American hiking brands such as Patagonia. The designs in the collection appear insanely high quality and functional, but definitely not boring. This is gear worthy of Metal Gear Solid boss levels. That varsity jacket looks pretty perfect for the guy who wants a standout piece that isn’t completely over the top.
