British painter Ben Nicholson was known for his landscape and still-life paintings that often employed abstract compositions, lines and shapes. The late artist’s abstract oil painting “Vertical Seconds” (1953), with its geometric structures and warped Piet Mondrian-esque shapes, is what served as direct inspiration for wisdom‘s forthcoming 2016 spring/summer menswear collection of the same name.

The latest collection reaffirms the Taiwanese label’s continued commitment to its “urban outdoor” aesthetic with designs that blend traditional outdoor wear with high-grade design elements that evoke a metropolis lifestyle. Abstract interpretations of familiar silhouettes like trench coats, anoraks, hoodies, and mandarin-collared shirts are paired alongside basics like T-shirts and shorts, and accessories like 5-panel caps and beanies, while matching blazer and pant sets feature bold striped patterns and color-blocked motifs. Garments are rendered in the same tones as the painting’s muted beige color palette and pops of bright blue and red borrowed from the artwork’s overlaying statement shapes. Fine detailing added to the heavy-layered folds, seams, and creases of each garment imitate the artwork’s plastered look.

The wisdom 2016 spring/summer “Vertical Seconds” collection will be available for purchase online soon.
