Having recently given a first look at its Fall/Winter 2017 “Children of the City” collection, Amsterdam-based label Daily Paper has now released the collection’s full lookbook. For this shoot, the brand set its pieces in the midst of barren landscapes in order to showcase the collection’s key themes of stealth and adaptation seen through the eyes of a “third culture” youth. Explaining this more, the label described the third culture as “the temporary, nomadic multicultural space they inhabited within an expatriate environment distinct from their native culture.”
Another inspiration for this collection is the Mbuti tribe, and Daily Paper’s idea of how they would adapt to life in the city. This influence is seen through the use of topographic map prints of the Ituri forest and prints inspired by Mbuti bark cloth prints, while ideas of stealth and adaptation are referenced through technical-inspired trims and hidden branding.
Take a look at the images above and get ready for the second installment of the collection to drop soon via Daily Paper’s web store. As well as working on the “Children of the City” release, Daily Paper also recently teamed up with Alpha Industries for an MA-1 bomber jacket inspired by Zambia’s so-called “Afronauts.”
