Designer Yo Nishioka follows Y.O.N.’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection with a conceptual Fall/Winter 2019 lookbook. The collection’s garments are highlighted alongside complementary accessories, with an industrial setting offering contrasting aesthetics.
Key to Y.O.N.’s seasonal collections are experiments in patternmaking and texture, each season expanding upon the dynamicism of past releases. For FW19, Y.O.N. advances its sweater game, delivering both trim turtlenecks and beefy crewnecks, the latter executed in chunky neutral knits and laden glow-in-the-dark, reflective weaves. This subtle approach to tech is bolstered by clean layering pieces realized in crisp suiting wool, eschewing collars for zippered closure and unfettered plackets.
Pops of color give the range life, delivered by way of bright knitwear and bi-color suiting, cut casually for everyday styling. Strappy duffle coats transform into waist-length work jackets thanks to double-zippered closure, tying in with a louche, branded coaches jacket. Lined with a rich print, the jacket matches an open-collar padded shirt, emblazoned with bold baroque imagery.
The collection goes live via Y.O.N.’s web store and Japanese stockists later this year.
Elsewhere in Japan, atmos teased a colorful GUESS collab for spring.
