LVMH Prize winner DOUBLET consistently ups the ante with dramatic, dynamic pattern-cutting and bold imagery, holding little back for Spring/Summer 2020. The Japanese label’s latest assortment encompasses a variety of garments previously explored by designer Masayuki Ino, elevated by a new series of film-indebted graphics and clever hidden details.

“Everyone has his or her own personality and talent,” notes Ino in a press release. “The clothes in this collection also have hidden talents.” This simple phrasing undersells the extreme detail and playful whimsy that informs the collection, with key pieces ranging from cut-out handbags (so wearers can poke their face through) to “The Key Person” shirts that come with attached keyrings.

Baggy, raw-hemmed cardigans recall Spring/Summer 2019, while the reversible sweaters from Fall/Winter 2019 are mirrored in the intarsia-woven knits that sport two-dimensional faces, meant to be worn over the wearer’s head. Elsewhere, oversize coats demand two wearers to create a sharp, tailored fit, a much more demanding garment than DOUBLET’s classic “Chaos Embroidery” tracksuits, which also return for the new season.

DOUBLET stockists like SSENSE and /017 will receive the new Spring/Summer 2020 goods in the coming weeks, though some, like the global Dover Street Market outposts, already have it in stock. DOUBLET will also host a presentation at the upcoming Paris Fashion Week.

Elsewhere in Japan, Lad Musician took cues from The Cure for Spring/Summer 2020.
