Greg Lauren has released its latest set of reworked garments, following up its previous partnership with Birdwell with a round of three masterfully deconstructed kimonos clad in a bevy of motorcycle and racing motifs.

The painter-turned-designer has merged the worlds of traditional Japanese clothing and vintage American automobile motifs, taking shape in the form of kimonos covered with embroidered racing patches and lightly dyed clothes. One standout piece is the Racing Kimono Studio jacket, constructed with a mix of silver-toned nylon and thick cotton. Strips of distressed denim are placed around the front edges of the opening. A bold yellow patch covers the right shoulder, complemented with “GL2020” marked vertically in red.

Another highlight is the Racing Kimono Brando jacket, made with light blue and white fabrics that come with slight fades for a lived-in look. The last garment in the set is the Moto Kimono Brando. Graced with red and white stripes over black leather, denim also lines the front of the piece, while a distinctive waist belt rounds up the silhouette.

The latest set of deconstructed kimonos from Greg Lauren is currently available at modaoperandi.com, ranging from $1,282 – $4,617 USD.
