After dropping a variety of Vagabond Utility Jackets as part of its Spring/Summer 2020 collection, Jakarta-based imprint Elhaus has released its entire seasonal range. Titled “Empty Room,” the collection is comprised of a range of fabrics, from durable ripstop and handmade waffle fabric to biodegradable lyocell. Due to social distancing measures, Surabaya-based artist Dwiky KA illustrated the SS20 lookbook in his signature sci-fi-inspired style.
Highlights from the collection include rugged earth-toned jackets informed by a variety of different features, like three-quarter length sleeves, adjustable buckles, shawl lapels and patched pockets. Available in black and army green, the utilitarian and functional outerwear pieces are accented by textural detailing created from a patchwork-like aesthetic.
The rest of the seasonal range is heavy with retro sci-fi-indebted graphics. Elhaus enlisted numerous artists to create prints for this season’s T-shirts, long sleeves and collared short sleeve shirts. The artists’ vision for the collection centered around a continuous fractal space-filling mechanism called Hilbert’s Curve. One artist imagines the possibility of a state where human hands meets the work of a CNC machine, while Dwiky KA’s extraterrestrial creatures come to life in futuristic worlds.
