Japan’s BLACK WEIRDOS has built a cult following in its home country thanks to its referential graphics and bold layering pieces, blending dynamic wardrobe staples into a single cohesive collection. Spring/Summer 2020 sees the brand developing its preferred techniques, delivering more eye-catching louche garments loaded with playful patterns and imagery.

Slick velvet sweatsuits and souvenir jackets (complete with matching pants) make for shiny statement pieces, abetted by oversized graphic T-shirts laden with nods to psychedelia, nirvana, Elvis and plenty of bold slogans, like “ENFANT TERRIBLE.” Baseball shirts, Baja hoodies, work jackets and short-sleeved shirts are all emblazoned with a variety of text, patches and prints, ranging from swirling checkerboards to shadow plaid and plenty of evocative verbiage.

Throughout, BLACK WEIRDOS juxtaposes suits and slacker staples, in its own wanton manner. What results is an assortment of comfort-minded hoodies and board shorts layered beneath more sophisticated shirts and coats, offering a wide array of approachable warm weather style cues.

The BLACK WEIRDOS SS20 collection will be available via their stockists such as SISTER Tokyo and Goodhood.
