nonnative‘s 2017 fall/winter collection takes inspiration from designer Takayuki Fujii’s travels in Mexico. While in Mexico, he travelled from Oaxaca in the south to the north’s rural and urban landscapes. The result is the “CIUDAD DE COLORES,” or “City of Colors,” collection. The collection’s color palette sees earthy tones such as brown, grey and charcoal used alongside brighter colors that take their name from flowers including dahlia pink, memosa yellow and agave green. One prominent feature of the collection is technical materials, with outerwear coming in Gore-Tex, Windstopper and Pliantex, while down has been replaced with the super-insulating PrimaLoft Gold.
Also featuring its Italian-made footwear, nonnative’s lookbook also teases a Japan-only Vans collaboration, with a Sk8-Hi release coming soon and an Old Skool likely to follow. The collection is finished with accessories including several 925 silver pieces, suede and velour headwear, and suede gloves that you can use with your smartphone.
