Tokyo-based label URU introduced its flowing collections in 2011, designed by Masaharu Urushiyama since its inception. Focusing on menswear, with a nod towards gender-neutral designs, the label continues rolling out loose looks for Spring/Summer 2018.
Informed more by comfort than trends, the label serves up neutral-hued looks offset with pops of color like pink and yellow. An assortment of loose trousers and collarless blazers are complemented by oversized tees and relaxed-cut shirts, executed in both solid tones and playful patterns. Layers range from loosely-knit cardigans and sweaters to wide trench coats, all cut in draping, lightweight fabrics. Some track-influenced gear and creased, light-wash jeans offer seasonally-appropriate contrast to the flowing, oversized suiting, with some pajama-influenced looks blurring the line between loungewear and sleepwear.
Look for the range to hit Japanese stockists like Concrete River in the coming months. Saturdays NYC issued a similarly louche set of hot weather looks in its Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook.
