Japanese menswear label KUON has carved out a reputation for fusing authentic Japanese Boro — a patchwork-textile of old, worn fabric swatches — with classic Americana designs. For KUON’s 2018 Spring/Summer collection, designer Shinichiro Ishibashi taps into the world of streetwear and skate culture, presenting a line of coach jackets, 5-panel hats, baggy trousers and cozy, oversized garms. As the Tokyo-set lookbook displays, the collection’s pieces boast a versatility that works for both young and older generations alike, signaling Japanese Boro‘s ability to retain tradition while staying relevant in the modern fashion sphere.

For those in Tokyo, KUON is holding its 2018 Spring/Summer collection exhibition from July 24-27.
