MANKIND continues its exploration of the American West with the unveiling of its Spring/Summer 2019 collection.

In a lookbook titled “Tribes of the Horde,” the Indonesian brand displays a seasonal drop that incorporates a number of western themes and images, including Native Americans in headdress, horseshoes, camouflage and more. Most notably, the collection includes tops with intricate embroideries as well as a button-up with an all-over graphic that depicts an infamous photograph of a time in which New York insensitively put an Iroquois chief on “display.”

Here’s what MANKIND had to say of its SS19 range:

“The Wild West is one of the most fictionalized and romanticized periods of American history, along with the longstanding issue of cultural appropriation of Native American people. The disrespectful naming of Indians is a product of ignorance, as comedian Louis C.K. demonstrate in one of his standups, or even worse, a product of racial supremacy. One of the first documented events of cultural insensitivity towards the Native American people was in 1927, when an Iroquois chief, So-Tsien-O-Wa-Ne, patrolled the Central Park’s lake in a canoe to promote New York events and locales. These insensitivities end when we start to respect.”

Enjoy the gallery above, and be on the lookout for MANKIND’s Spring/Summer 2019 range to hit supporting stockists in the coming months. In related fashion news, visvim and MR PORTER just unveiled a special California-inspired capsule.
