On the heels of joint efforts with Timberland and Dickies Japan, mastermind JAPAN continues rolling out impactful collaborations as the year winds up. This time, the label recruited Californian designer Greg Lauren for a richly-deconstructed collection of layering pieces and pants pieced together from mastermind’s archive of wares.

Comprising over a half-dozen different styles, the capsule includes mash-ups of various mastermind staples, including hoodies, leather jackets, military jackets and jeans. For instance, one style juxtaposes a red flannel shirt base against a heavily-distressed denim shirt at the bottom, a built-in black hood (one emblazoned with mastermind’s skull logo) and layered sweater sleeves, complete with cut-off mastermind branding.

Other pieces include a twist on Lauren’s signature denim jean/sweat pant hybrid, a trucker jacket pieced together with one of Lauren’s signature vintage military layers and one standout item that stitches together military cargo pockets (complete with partial blanket lining), a denim kimono placket and a gem-studded mastermind leather jacket.

Greg Lauren x mastermind JAPAN is available in-store at Isetan Shinjuku Men’s and Maxfield LA. Prices, unsurprisingly, aren’t for the faint of heart: items begin at ¥185,900 JPY (approximately $1,710 USD) and ¥231,000円 JPY (approximately $2,120 USD) before skyrocketing up to ¥759,000 JPY (approximately $6,975 USD) for the leather jacket/denim kimono/cargo jacket combo.

Recently, Maxfield prepared a series of seasonal exclusives from various luxury partners, including both Lauren and mastermind WORLD.
