Japanese label MEANSWHILE is back with its latest lookbook, presenting an expansive range of functional garments for Spring/Summer 2020. Following up its previous FW19 collection, MEANSWHILE has delivered a unique spin on traditional silhouettes, imbedding them with modern utility, this time in the form of breezy warm-weather mid-layers.

The lineup is packed with a mix of colorful textiles and fabric treatments, spanning black mesh, orange nylon, brown canvas, iridescent rubber overlays, gray wool and light blue denim, to mention a few. One standout piece is an elongated trench coat that can be turned into a shorter Harrington jacket. The piece is lined with high-density gabardine, using 60 double-cotton warp yarn for a durable build. At the top of the jacket is a spread collar, complemented by dark brown buttons and silver-toned detailing at the waist belt. As a finishing note, detachable zippers are placed just below the waist, while the lower back boasts a single vent.

Another highlight is an orange nylon shirt that comes with a Mandarin collar. Made from 40d nylon taffeta, the garment is highly breathable and sees a distinctive wrinkle-like texture that prevents creasing, even when packed into a bag. Finishing off the kung-fu-inspired designs, it features a slightly raised collar and central frog button closure. Other pieces like the patchwork drizzler jacket, Solotex reversible jacket, cargo shorts, jet caps and mesh pullover hoodie round up the expansive assemblage.

Though no official dates have been disclosed yet, MEANSWHILE’s SS20 collection is expected to land at the label’s website in early 2020.

Elsewhere, Rick Owens has unveiled its tactical Black Bodybag Jumpsuit.
