Last year, we saw Totokaelo collaborate with NEEDLES on a set of indigo and charcoal-dyed shirts. This time, the New York-based retailer is debuting its very first men’s collection under its in-house label Totokaelo Archive.
Captured behind a faint overcast along the coastal Pacific Northwest, the latest imagery features a concise range of pieces paletted in monochrome and all-over prints. The collection includes garments like a white button-up, short-sleeve shirts, trousers, a blazer and a crewneck sweater. One standout piece is a short-sleeve button-up emblazoned with graphics of mixing swirls of ink-like silhouettes frozen in animation. At the front are standard sized lapels and a small chest pocket. Another highlight is a classic three-button blazer that comes in semi-water-repellant fabrication. It features a single vent at the back and added stitching throughout the body of the piece for extra reinforcement and texture. Other pieces like dress shirts, cropped BDU pants and a white hoodie rounds out the muted collection.
Totokaelo will release three collections per year with the upcoming line up available on the retailer’s website starting June 3.
