Picking up where Spring/Summer 2020 left off, Japan’s elephant TRIBAL fabrics delivers another strong selection of whimsically deconstructed looks for Fall/Winter 2020. Loaded with inverted menswear staples, plush fabrics and collaborative efforts, the new range is a hybrid of the various elements that interest designer Ryōta Kimizuka.

Collaborative Tomo & Co. loafers and artwork from Kitaro Okamoto enliven the far-flung styling, which seamlessly incorporates elements of workwear, tailoring and streetwear. Blazers are designed to be worn inside-out, showcasing the lining and chest pocket, while sweater hems are sliced and stitched diagonally, creating asymmetric lines. Boxy hoodies, plaid flannel shirts and tees offer a soft counterpoint to the sturdy puffers, canvas work jackets and chino pants, with the mostly-muted earthy color palette only occasionally interrupted by bold blue.

Visit elephant TRIBAL fabrics website for more information on the brand and expect Japanese stockists like CRACK FLOOR to launch the new range later this year.

Elsewhere in Japan, labels like Sugarhill, 08Sircus and BlackEyePatch introduced their own seasonal lookbooks.
