New York’s Abasi Rosborough returns for Spring/Summer 2019 with a range of muted layers ideal for the warm weather. Lightweight fabrics increase air flow and regal, mature cuts create effortless drape, quietly fulfilling the collection’s name: “Desert Phantom.”
Recognizable items, like parkas and bomber jackets, are trimmed of unnecessary detailing — instead, goods are realized with sleek cuts and heritage-inspired patterns, bolstered by the quality of the reclaimed fabrics that inform Abasi Rosborough’s seasonal releases. Thumbhole-accented sweaters sport insert panels that contrast understated craft with appealing patterns, while outerwear showcases collarless necklines influenced by Japanese layering pieces and interior drawstrings for adjustable fits. Monochrome items are elevated with accents of blue, green and red, preventing the collection’s various patterns, pockets and pouches from reading as too busy. Instead, the various accessories — shoulder bags, obi-like belts, enormous scarves and a new iteration of the brand’s signature tabi boot — served to complement the techwear undertones that Abasi Rosborough develop upon each season, adding another layer of functionality to the intelligently-designed garments.
