Tokyo-based retailer/brand BEAMS presents its Fall/Winter 2012 collection in its entirety. Focusing on faithfully recreating American classics using only the finest Japanese fabrics and craftsmanship, the collection also heavily employs Harris Tweed across an assortment of menswear staples – including coats, vests, sweaters and trousers. With an undeniable functionality achieved due in large part to the trim cuts, one can’t overlook the accessible colors employed which includes indigo, grey, green, brown and red. Expect to see the Fall/Winter 2012 collection from BEAMS at their retail shops all across Asia.
Workers “May” Collection
Always returning to Workers, K&TH – a small scale operation from Takashi Tateno based in Kurashiki, Japan. The collection moves around the same themes of classic American workwear so don’t expect to see future-leggings or ‘directional wardrobing’ anytime soon. For May Wabash fabric returns in a smart vest and railway jacket, alongside a heavy canvas tote, polka dot shirt and parachute trousers.
Fullcount Autumn / Winter 2011 Collection
“A peek at what will soon be on offer from Denimcentric Japanese label Fullcount. Plenty of check shirts, loopwheel sweats, an admirable take on the Brown’s Beach Vest and of course plenty of lovingly crafted denim goods.”
