Japanese label Children of the discordance continues with its seasonal lookbooks, this time for next year’s Spring/Summer 2021. The collection is labeled “The Protect Archives II,” denoting its inspiration from archival pieces from the brand’s nine years of operation.

In particular, Children of the discordance took influence from its archives particularly with the styles and fabrics, all stemming from a sense of deconstruction. Fringes are left frayed, liners are exposed to reveal a layered look, and noticeable patchwork exposes rough edges while slathering the garments with color and contrast. The brand’s recognizable paisley patterns adorn multiple pieces, including anoraks, sweaters, outerwear jackets and more.

For the consumer looking for refinement, the lookbook also showcases more traditional wares: knit sweaters and zip up track jackets adopt argyle diamonds, while Persian rug designs help define a boxy aesthetic for other cut-and-sewn pieces. Lastly, embroidered patches — perhaps over-exaggerated in quantity — decorate tops and bottoms to give a late 20th century Americana vibe.

View the lookbook in its entirety above and check out Children of the discordance’s one-off collection exclusively for Dover Street Market Ginza.
