MAGIC STICK's 2017 Fall/Winter Collection Takes Inspiration From Jonathan Demme's 'Silence of the Lambs'

Not your typical movie merch.

By //Fashion

Heavily influenced by music, fashion and culture from the past and present, MAGIC STICK‘s bold aesthetic features statement graphics, prints and slouchy oversized staples. Acknowledged as a cult Japanese streetwear label, MAGIC STICK recreates 90s-era nostalgia through its clean designs.

Inspired by Jonathan Demme’s 1991 thriller film Silence of the Lambs, the 2017 fall/winter collection is titled in honor of the production, where designers picked out famous scenes, quotes, and keywords as main motifs for the new range. Main outerwear silhouettes revolve around biker and loose-fit jackets as they were prevalent in the ’90s and in the movie. Sewn by local Japanese craftworkers, the pieces are made from high-quality Italian leather. The lookbook also appears to include a goose down jacket, which is lightweight and heat retaining. More pieces include a reversible satin bomber jacket (Sukajan) with an eye-catching graphic from a famous scene. In addition to using its classic black color scheme, a palette with smokey colors such as grey, beige, “Steel Grey” and “Pink Beige” are blocked with livelier shades of red and orange.

Although MAGIC STICK presents itself as a streetwear brand, the Tokyo-based label has decided to produce very limited amounts of products made with rich materials in order to support an ethical way of shopping — shop less, but choose better. Check out the collection above which will be available online and on HBX.com later this month.
