Perhaps known more (outside of Japan, anyway) for his guitar prowess and status as the co-founder of the Smashing Pumpkins, James Iha has been designing his own solid line of apparel since 2001 and returns this month with his Spring/Summer 2017 collection. Whereas VAPORIZE’s 2016 drops paid homage to the likes of old school bluesmen and the King of Pop, this year’s spring/summer release opts for some different musical inspiration: the old “Madchester” scene of the late ’80s and early ’90s. The result is a modern take on the looks that permeated Manchester nearly three decades ago and is chock full of lightweight anoraks, harrington-style jackets, plaid flannel, knit cardigans, slim trousers, short-sleeved button-downs and bucket caps.

VAPORIZE’s “Madchester” release is available to pre-order now via BEAMS.
