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.
