Emerging Japanese label ANITYA has toyed with sleek shapes in its seasonal offerings since it rebranded from Samsara in 2017. The brand’s Fall/Winter 2020 range upholds its exploration of sleek, refined shapes, setting the elevated garments amidst a rugged mountain landscape.
Informed by neutral tones and relaxed cuts, ANITYA’s FW20 range is dubbed “EXOPHONY,” described as the practice of writing in a language that is not one’s mother tongue. This relates the inspiration behind the range: native herdsman and sherpa who shroud themselves in hand-woven blankets and enormous hats to protect from winter’s chill.
Accompanying these borrowed designs is a variety of ANITYA signatures, including sculpted blazers, boxy trucker jackets, cropped straight-leg pants and layered shirting. Textural intrigue is wrought by wool and leather, abetted by dense cotton twills and gabardines, whose sleek surface makes for a stark counterpart to the more organic items.
