Queens-based Kazuya Kubo has quietly toiled on his label, Dsecond, since 2016, following several years spent developing D2, a furniture label focused on breathing new life into antiques and relics that were otherwise gathering dust. Kubo collected vintage textiles along with the rescued homewares, eventually transforming the forgotten fabrics into mature wearables, a hybrid of timeless silhouettes and hands-on craft informed by his childhood in Hokkaido.

Dsecond’s garments are a result of painstaking fabric selection and hands-on production, designed with the intent of creating lifelong staples that perpetually exist in the wearer’s wardrobe, personalized by wear. Dynamic proportions inform the latest offering, seen in the brand’s first-ever lookbook.

Key pieces, like boxy jackets, wide, cropped trousers and billowing gown coats, are thoughtfully constructed from richly textured silks, linens, wools and other organic fabrics, blending inventive silhouettes with bold texture. Muted colors grant the progressive pieces a versatile edge, transforming would-be statement pieces — like extended-length striped shirts and raw-hemmed work blousons — into reliable essentials.

Take a closer look at the stunning garments on Dsecond’s web store.
