KOMAKINO FW14 Collection

KOMAKINO delivers more strong pieces for Fall/Winter 2014 with a collection inspired by industrial and electronic music. The usual brand signatures are here : graphic detailing, color-blocking and military themes. I first became interested in KOMAKINO after seeing their well-executed MA-1s at Opening Ceremony and have been tracking the brand since. I feel it’s a brand that actually rides the line between high fashion and streetwear quite well and in this regard it reminds me of Nom de Geurre (RIP). ┬áThe standout outerwear pieces this time around are the leather trench and MA-1 bomber. While I’m admittedly sick of fashion camo, ┬áKOMAKINO did do a respectable job of remixing the German Army (Camo┬áFlecktarn).

KOMAKINO SS14 Presentation

London based Komakino held a presentation of their Spring/Summer 2014 offerings in an empty Paris parking lot. It’s hard for me to look at this line without thinking of Raf Simons, but that doesn’t take away from my appreciation of what Komakino does. The brand adds tasteful details to ┬ásharply-fitting staples that men want to wear : hoodies, t-shirts, bomber jackets and button-ups. Examples in this collection are a cut-out detail on the arm of a blazer or a graphic design hit on sleeves of the MA-1.

You can find Komakino at Opening Ceremony (NY/LA) and Substance (LA) in the US. A full list of stockists can be found HERE.
