As its name suggests, the Japanese fashion label Lafayette draws inspiration from the eclectic streetwear culture of New York. Fresh for its 2012 spring/summer collection, the nearly decade-old brand commissions a number of New York personalities for its video lookbook, including DJ Clark Kent, jeffstaple, Tony Touch, as well as Maffew Ragazino and Das Racist for the video’s title track, “Jackson Pollock,” produced by Harry Fraud. Showcasing American style as seen through a Japanese lens, this collection features a comprehensive range of goods from graphic T-shirts, zip hoodies and camo prints to chambray shorts, technical lightweight jackets and travel accessories. Lafayette’s 2012 spring/summer collection is currently available at select retailers worldwide.
