Japanese label DIGAWEL introduced its inaugural runway collection on March 25, showcasing a new range of quirky goods. Fall/Winter 2018 sees the brand elevating its street and skatewear influences to a new level, with plenty of colors and accessories rounding out the range.
A host of lighthearted detailing bolsters the comfortable range, with car embroidery, buckled belts, chunky running sneakers and unexpected zipper plackets subverting several otherwise-understated looks. More austere designs came in the form of shirts boasting half-length upper layers and contrast-pocket work jackets, while DIGAWEL’s favored MA-1 jackets were realized with slouchy cuts to match the other loose looks. Indeed, the collection emphasized relaxed trousers, long sleeves, big knitwear and massive outerwear, all layered loosely upon each other. Unrestrained by color, branding or silhouette, the offering played to DIGAWEL’s youthful side while realizing a step forward for the brand.
