WACKO MARIA’s FW18 Lookbook Makes Creative Use of Leopard Prints & Bob Marley Photos
Earlier taking a peek at WACKO MARIA’s collaborative capsule alongside Daidō Moriyama, which saw an assortment of risqué photos placed onto a swarm of casual tops, Atsuhiko Mori and his famed Japanese imprint is back for Fall/Winter 2018 with a new lookbook. In typical WACKO MARIA fashion, the lineup borrows heavily on vintage military-inspired looks with subtle sportswear splashes weaving in an out.
Given the season at hand, statement outerwear plays a prominent role with a variety of styles called upon to front the seasonal campaign. Streamlined overcoats, embroidered souvenir jackets, aviator pieces, parkas, shawl neck cardigans, and more stylistically uplift each ensemble playing the key layering piece to said looks. Other notable design accents include the application of leopard prints, which surface heavily throughout landing on a choice selection of outerwear and pullovers, while nostalgic images of the late, great Bob Marley find ways onto a bevy of T-shirts and revere-collared button-downs. Although admired for its heavy-handed streetwear narrative, WACKO MARIA balances out the new lineup, offering a small sampling of sophisticated three-piece suiting options.
The collection is available now via the brand’s online shop and will also be making its way to HBX in the near future. Meanwhile, in other fashion news, here are the five best collections from Prague Fashion Week SS19.
