Menswear label SECOND/LAYER brightens up it’s gothninja fundamentals with this striking LA based editorial. The shoot captures the freedom of west coast of living and is smartly styled using pieces from H.Lorenzo Fall/Winter brand line-up which includes the likes of Undercover, Haider Ackermann and COMME des GARCONS Homme Plus. I really liked the feel of this editorial and how it modernizes the trademark elements of skate culture, grung and punk-rock in a relatable setting.

I’ve loved much of what The Soloist has put out since the brand first began 10 seasons ago. It’s clear now that the brand’s DNA is a significant evolution from Takahiro’s previous brand Number (N)ine. Unfortunately it’s always been a challenge to find the really great pieces from the collection outside of Japan. The retailers that do carry it in North America have a tendency to play it safe and avoid the really interesting pieces which are the core of what makes The Soloist one of the most original labels out. I’m glad to see HAVEN really did their thing this time around with this Fall/Winter buy.

The item that stands out to me the most is the above Rough Out Work Military Jacket which is basically an ill sheepskin version of the M-65.  This stands out to me as one of the best outerwear pieces of the season and a definite grail despite the almost $4000 pricetag. The rest of the buy strikes a nice balance too between statement pieces and core staples. The below waffle hoody has a great texture and color and should work nicely with alot of brands. The MA-1 is another twist on the bomber which the brand has executed in the past.

Browse the entire collection over at HAVEN.

After a brief quiet spell, EYES & SINS returns with an immaculate outerwear line ‘PROTOTYPE-ZERO / 零式’.
The small range is a logical evolution from the graphic tees released in the past. The line once again draws inspiration from military items, utilizing details such as buckles/fasteners and multifunctional compartments that contribute to both the form and functionality of the garments.

This is an impressive first foray into more elaborate items from the GFIRMG family. The 「14F-ES-JM01」RE-REPRODUCTION 01 BOMBER (see the Third Looks Best MA-1 Feature) has some great details including Articular sleeves, darting/stitching details and numberous functional zippers and pockets that should help users carry around daily essentials. Also of note is the 「14F-ES-AV01」ENGRAM MULTI-CHAMBER
which operates as a vest with multiple Pockets / compartments.

Three of the items are available now online with more to drop soon. Looking forward to seeing more on the trench and pants in the collection personally. I’m excited to see the GFIRMG team transition from leather goods to graphic tees and now a full fledged cohesive collection.
