MEANSWHILE continues its penchant for progressive cut and sew garments imbued with traditional design motifs. Presented is its FW19 collection; the Japanese label follows up from its SS19 lineup with a range of deconstructed winter weather garments with a distinctively technical edge.
The latest assemblage sees a good mix of textiles, ranging from tones of grey, khaki, maroon, forest green, navy and brown. Featured pieces include a twin-pocket vest, oversized peacoat and elongated parkas, to name a few. One standout piece is a padded down jacket, complete with a thin contrasting hood. White gridlines accent the black hood, while details like drawstrings, a taped zipper and raised collar top off the jacket. Another highlight is a reworked noragi that comes with pockets at the front and on the sleeves. Wide vertical stripes are emblazoned throughout the garment, tinged in grey and red lines. Other garments like the beige trench coat, mao-collar button-downs and oversized hoodies round up the collection.
Though no official dates have been disclosed, MEANSWHILE’s FW19 Collection is expected to release shortly over at meanswhile.stores.jp.
