Japanese label Noma t.d. is known for its work with materials and fabrics (the t.d. stands for textile design), and its Fall/Winter 2018 release sees it continue in that vein. The collection sees a range of prints, including floral patterns and tie dye, as well as thick knitwear and padded jackets. Elsewhere, some of the other standout features of the collection include embroidery work, which appears on everything from jackets to shirts, denim pieces and relaxed tailoring.
As well as the mainline collection, Noma t.d. has also unveiled new collaborations for the year ahead. The first collaboration sees the brand team up with fellow Tokyo-based label Needles on a small tie dye capsule. The joint collection is comprised of two different shirts, with each one featuring a print influenced by Noma t.d.’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection.
For its second collaboration, Noma t.d. has worked with Engineered Garments with the Japanese label designing a print for the New York brand’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection. This pattern comes in red and black and mixes traditional Chinese-style artwork with zigzag stripes. This print appears on everything from blazers and shirting to bags and bucket hats. As it stands, no release information for the Fall/Winter 2018 collection or collaborations has been released, although Noma t.d. has announced plans for “special projects” at the Nepenthes stores in New York and Japan this Fall.
