Portland’s Olderbrother continues issuing its subtly tweaked variations of timeless standards for Spring/Summer 2018, blending comfortable styles with innovative dye processes — building off of last year’s coffee dyes, the brand now sources colors from insects and flowers.

Boxy, genderless designs, from oversized shirts to ringer T-shirts, are executed in lightweight Japanese cotton, with the brand’s signature unstructured chore jackets and pleated trousers informing the collection’s laidback style. Neutral-toned shirts and outerwear are accented by “Hibiscus Punch” shades, so named for the flower that the dye was sourced from. Elsewhere, cochineal dye, taken from insects of the same name, allows for the collection’s warm colors. Polo shirts, wide-lapeled blazers and unstructured coats are featured in organic, breathable fabrics, complemented by a series of textured seersucker goods.

Shop the ethically-produced and sustainably sourced goods on Olderbrother’s web store or visit the brand’s New York pop-up until February 3. For more conscious goods, STORY Mfg.‘s latest collection utilizes materials including lotus flower yarn.
