Japanese label Digawel continues mining progressive territory with its Fall/Winter 2020 collection, utilizing founder Kohei Nishimura’s fondness for disparate influences to imagine a collection both off-kilter and accessible. Drawing from both ’90s streetwear and preppy French heritage garments, the new offering is also infused with warm hues like brown, orange and mustard yellow.
Staple items, like prim button-up shirts, turtleneck tees and pleated slacks, are realized with premium Japanese construction that’s faithful to the pieces’ menswear origins but approachable when considering more advanced styling. Digawel’s preferred coaches jackets, fleece blousons and the brand’s first-ever puffer (crafted by F/CE of recycled nylon) are layered atop Yarmo boilersuits and J.Press blazers emblazoned with colorful crests, further channeling refined French tastes with tennis court-friendly sweatsuits. Elsewhere, shaggy and patterned sweaters and technical belts provide casual flair to the volumnious trousers and immense technical coats.
