Japanese brand HBNS (pronounced “Habanos”) offers up plenty of prints, relaxed cuts and bright colors for Spring/Summer 2018. The label’s outdoorsy inspiration is on full display, as it blends streetwear with various other clothing styles.
With influences ranging from military clothing, surfing and workwear, HBNS designer Akio Mitozi ties disparate cues into a cohesive lineup. Summery floral prints appear on shirts, tracksuits and shorts, blending with brightly colored chinos and coats. There’s also plenty of jeans and denim jackets, offered both raw and washed. Militaristic camouflage patterns in varying colors appear on pants and outerwear, while bold graphic patches recalling collegiate designs appear on the sleeves of shirts and sweaters. Despite the collection’s busy detailing and loud colors, the cuts are all familiar and wearable, and there are some neutral toned items to balance out the more out-there designs.
