Picking up right where Fall/Winter 2018 left off, Sasquatchfabrix.‘s Spring/Summer 2019 collection showcases a progressive blend of contemporary silhouettes elevated by traditional Japanese styling. Dubbed “NANPOU” (which translates literally as “Southward” or “South-bound”), the offering showcases a host of haori coats, noragi jackets and hakama trousers bolstered by floral shirts and narrow sunglasses.
Familiar Sasquatchfabrix. staples, like collarless gown coats and high-rise trousers, appear alongside some new items, which include a velcro-strapped linen anorak, lightweight chore coat and cropped, layered trousers. Prints appear throughout, including a wallpaper-like all-over pattern, large dyed dots and florals, all executed across washed-out beige and deep navy tones.
Sporty flair comes by way of football jersey stripes added to the sleeves of a haori jacket, tearaway-style trousers and a cap accented by chinstrap closure. The lookbook also hints at some upcoming collaborations, which may include Suicoke sandals and more elevated Asics goods.
The collection will hit stockists like SSENSE early next year.
Most recently, Sasquatchfabrix. FW18 was showcased in Goodhood’s “Neo-Tokyo” editorial.
