Season after season, Daiki Suzuki‘s Engineered Garments proves that “heritage,” when done with inspiration and ingenuity, is not a fleeting trend. With the release of the Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook, we are treated to yet another round of well-constructed, Americana-based pieces that are infused with Japanese sensibility and on-trend pattern usage. Ironically shot in black and white, the collection’s usage of loud and busy prints is tempered with soft, rumpled workwear and tailored basics colored in a neutral palette. Of-the-moment floral prints, paisley, patchwork and polka dots all make repeated appearances in a strong offering of unstructured blazers, anoraks, shorts and other seasonal essentials. The lookbook, this time shot in an urban New York setting, also provides a nice change-up from the natural backdrops often favored by the label. Look for the Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2013 collection to hit stores in the near future.
