Buzzy Japanese label KIDILL offers its unique take on punk styling for Spring/Summer 2018. Featuring an array of photographs from noted photographer Dennis Morris, the collection plays with proportion and silhouette much like the brand’s Fall/Winter 2017 line.
Inspired by ’70s and ’80s punk clothing, the collection offers an array of plaids and prints, including direct references to Public Image LTD., led by John Lydon — better known as Johnny Rotten. “PUBLIC IMAGE,” “POST-PUNK” and similar slogans are emblazoned on oversized T-shirts and hoodies, with plaid suiting providing an appropriately jarring contrast. To battle the hot weather, KIDILL offers enormous, wide shorts and cropped pants, as well as layers in the form of raw-hemmed work shirts, long-sleeved T-shirts with ties on the hem and massive bomber jacket-inspired outerwear. The brand’s collaborations with avant-garde shoemaker The Old Curiosity Shoppe are also on full display.
Not for the faint of heart, the collection will release through stockists like HBX in the coming months. In the meantime, fellow Japanese label SOPH. teamed up with Massive Attack for a collaborative T-shirt.
