Last year, virtuoso designer Aitor Throup announced his forthcoming return to menswear without offering any specifics on his forthcoming output. Now, we finally have more information on the famed creative’s collections, which are about to see the light of day after 15 years of gestation.

The more elaborate menswear line was the one partially revealed last year, and Throup has yet to reveal the name of the offering. In two colorful teaser images, viewers can just barely make out dense layers of black garments, obscuring the wearer’s shape without disappearing into an imperceptible mass. Metallic buttons and white accents lend some slight contrast, while a strappy piece of headgear is playfully adorned with rabbit ears.

Throup’s more accessible line is dubbed TheDSA, after his Daily Sketchbook Archives. Genderless and versatile the garments range from hoodies and caps to T-shirts and sweatpants, all intended to make for comfortable staples with the addition of Throup’s bold graphics, though it will not include logos. The prices will coincide with the selection’s laid-back looks, unlike the more conceptual, progressive mainline offerings.

In an interview with Vogue, Throup touches on disparate inspirations like Kendrick Lamar and Coco Chanel. “You look at the elements that constitute Chanel,” he explained, “they are fragments of her identity [combined] into this self portrait that equates to a brand. [She had such a] complete commitment to truth and authenticity as an artist [that she] became the narrative. … My obsession with crafting newness through authenticity, crafting objects anatomically from the inside out, [results in] pieces that have a sort of timelessness built into them because they have a story to tell.”

Expect The DSA to launch at Dover Street Market locations before the end of the month, and look for Throup to reveal more information on the unnamed collection later this year.
