Emerging Japanese label Y.O.N. (“Youth Obey Newest”) offers a look at its succinct Spring/Summer 2019 collection, which centers around loose cuts and bold patterns. Designer Yo Nishioka only recently launched the label — its first collection was for the SS18 season — since, Nishioka has elevated the brand into a compelling blend of texture and patterns.
Generously-cut trousers offer loose carrot cut silhouettes that balance out oversized mesh tops and strapped-up vests. Enormous short-sleeved shirts are tucked into self-belting pants that straddle the line between slacks and harem pants, while a gargantuan red parka is styled over minute floral shorts. A tielocken-inspired blazer offers a grey patch, contrasting red collar and glen check pattern, standing in stark contrast with enormous overshirts and trousers sporting a batik-inspired pattern.
