Key Japanese label UNUSED returns with more playful layering pieces for Fall/Winter 2018. The anonymously-designed label continues showcasing comfortable looks with a focus on playful layering and unexpected hits of color.
UNUSED is well-regarded in its home country for consistently offering wearable, well-made goods, and its latest selection upholds its recognizable design ethos. The admiration is felt in Western countries as well, with artist A$AP Rocky showing an active interest in the brand among others. Along with staple goods like sweatsuits, trench coats and open-collar shirts, the new collection offers wide, cropped denim, massive parkas and a host of reworked shearling jackets. The brand’s classic drop-shoulder hoodies return, complemented by other comfortwear like zippered-sleeve track jackets and hooded, patch pocket wool coats. Sleeveless down vests and enormous V-neck sweaters uphold the wide silhouettes while ensuring warmth in cooler temps, with understated silver jewelry and slouchy beanies filling out the looks.
Expect for the collection to hit stockists like COVERCHORD’s site later this year.
