Eytys has revisited the 1990s rave culture with its latest capsule collection which sees a collaboration with the London-based, Japanese-born designer Michiko Koshino. Previously seen in its Fall/Winter 2019 lookbook, the pieces channel the river-meets-rave aesthetic that comprised Eytys’ entire seasonal offering.

Koshino has mastered her references to ’90s nightlife subcultures with the inflatable jackets and vests that are synonymous with her design approach. For her collaboration with Eytys, Koshino brings inflatable clubwear, rave-inspired prints and the techno energy of the ’90s with zippers, windbreaker fabrics and unique cuts to the Stockholm-based label.

Captured in a surreal-meets-hyperrealistic urban lookbook shot by British-Nigerian photographer Ruth Ossai, the collaboration showcases a number of standout pieces including the aforementioned blow-up “Omega” vest in black and cream, a pair of high-waisted, relaxed “Benz” trousers now featuring zippers, front slits and more, and a selection of tops. One of the most notable tops is the “Underground Dressing” T-shirt, as well as the “Gamma” quarter-zip long-sleeve with contrast “MK” branding. 

The Michiko Koshino x Eytys collection can be seen in the lookbook above — which was shot in Ossai’s hometown of Nsukka, Lagos with a cast of friends and locals — and everything can be bought online or instore with prices ranging from $150 USD to $660 USD.
