Japanese label Iroquois has tweaked its design ethos over the past few seasons, embracing contemporary touches alongside timeless silhouettes. Influences from music and film manifest in a plethora of retro-indebted layering pieces, abetted by statement shirts and trousers.
Fringe, gold buttons and illustrative prints appear throughout the collection, lending strong visual interest to Iroquois’ signature trench coats and bomber jackets, with louche suiting and pleated slacks providing a versatile counterpoint to the playful outerwear. Heavily-patterned shirting and sweaters deliver unmissable colors, while all-over prints grace those items and washed-out, raw-hemmed denim items, reinforcing the retro motif with zebra-inspired stripes and subtly-flared legs. A cozy wool cardigan is the soft alternative to the cargo-pocketed denim jacket, complementing the fringed jacket with intarsia flame motifs and rich colors.
Iroquois’ ZOZOTOWN page and Japanese stockists will host the new range later this year.
Elsewhere in Japan, F/CE launched its latest technical range.
