With JON-E taking the head designer role for SWAGGER’s lead line, Hidehiro “IGGY” Iguchi has found time to fully embrace his side label, SWG BLACK PLATINUM. Following on from the small number of items that were released for the first season last year, the 2012 spring/summer effort offers much more of a complete collection. Influenced by the relaxed resort-style of summers past, a subtle ’50s feel falls across the collection. Flat caps, railroad hats, rolled shorts, and a reversible varsity jacket stand alongside distressed worker-style denim items. Many of the pieces feature minimalistic nautical “NAVALISM” branding. The SWG BLACK PLATINUM 2012 spring/summer “NAVY BLUE” collection will be sold exclusively in SWAGGER stores and is set to release in the next couple of months.
