Designer Satoshi Okugawa began cutting his teeth in fashion as the store manager for Japanese mainstay ripvanwinkle. After developing a sense of value for clothing, Okugawa began CIVILIZED in 2010 under the mantra of “Free-thinking, refined style without rules.”

The label’s clothing is a reflection of Okugawa’s focus on design over trends — rejecting branding and statement pieces, the garments are defined by cut and quality, with trim silhouettes allowing for maximum movement. The offering incorporates the functionality of outdoor clothing, with travel gear like ponchos and sleek shorts crafted from technical fabrics and featuring a bevy of pockets allowing for comfort in various climates. However, Okugawa’s latest also showcases an avant-garde approach to tailoring, as seams are angled to best fit the body and uneven hems encourage clever layering. Although Civilized’s latest is primarily monochrome, a camouflage pattern reinforces the sense of outdoors adventure hinted at by the technical textiles.

Look for the range to hit the brand’s web store soon. In the meantime, more Japanese technical clothing is on the way thanks to nonnative and WILD THINGS’ latest partnership.
