Facetasm SS15 Collection

Japanese label Facetasm showed their Spring/Summer 2015 collection at Tokyo Fashion week. The label¬†is known for it’s wild takes on streetwear with exaggerated color palettes and shapes. ¬†Designer Hiromichi Ochiai wanted to achieve a balance between ‘dressing up and dressing down’ for this fashion week outing and he is successful in¬†¬†blending a mix of wilder pieces with more basic items that regular guys can feel comfortable adding to their closets.

Much of the styling here plays around the length of garments, with many¬†looks featuring several different lengths overtop slim tapered pants or baggy more playful shorts. If you found past Facetasm collections a bit too intimidating to wear but still had an appreciation for the aesthetic of the brand ,¬†you should be able to find more low-key items this time around. On the contrary if you are looking for the wild and crazy stuff there’s plenty of it here including crossed lapel tuxedos and wide¬†ponchos.

If you are fiending for current season product you can find it at over at H.Lorenzo.

TheSoloist SS15 Lookbook

Through his design career, Takahiro Miyashita has returned to Western motifs time and again. It seems he’s also simplified many of his designs to key silhouettes¬†and patterns. Gone are some of the more ornate details of older Soloist collections and personally I feel they are a bit missed here. On the positive side, the selection of light outerwear, oversized shirting and denim found in the Spring/Summer collection should be easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.

johnUNDERCOVER SS15 Lookbook

I was a little skeptical about johnUNDERCOVER when the diffusion line was first announced. It seemed like it was a bit redundant¬†alongside the main UC line , especially seeing that the price-point wasn’t that far off from the mainline. That being said I enjoyed viewing the spring/summer 2015 collection. Ostensibly¬†johnUNDERCOVER is supposed to offer wardrobe mainstays, staples and subtle twists of classic UC styles and it seems as though this collection has been successful in translating the aesthetic of recent UC collections into some easy to shop/wear separates.

All the looks are stylized with either creepers or sandals and the styling embues the looks with a 70’s rock and roll vibe throughout. There’s a few nice prints in the collection and I’m really into the souvenir jacket above. I’ve been looking for one in some time and may have just the one. While SS15 is far from being in-stores, enjoy these images after the jump and check the Undercoverism website for more info.

Damir Doma Silent SS15

Damir Doma has quietly¬†built himself a fashion empire that topped over 9 million euros in sales in 2013.¬†Silent (which launched in 2010) is ostensibly¬†a diffusion line which offers moderately priced basics such as t-shirts, hoodies and denim. The spring/summer 2014 men’s collection marks a bit of departure¬†from the brand as it embraces ¬†minimalism and some of the¬†trends commonplace in menswear today: oversized graphic t-shirts, sweatpants.

That being said there is something refreshing about this line with it’s unique color palette: pastels and khakis done Damir’s way mixed with black/white and grey. ¬†I also appreciate the inclusion¬†of both oversized and cropped summer outerwear overtop both slim shorts or baggier trousers and pants. While past collections of Silent were decidedly more bohemian (and more of a natural element to the materials), I like¬†this cleaner direction for SS15¬†and¬†I think there will be plenty of pieces worth picking up in it.
