After showcasing its Spring/Summer 2021 wares, KUON returns with a fresh look at Fall/Winter 2020. First seen back in February, the offering is classic KUON, delivering relaxed silhouettes informed by progressive textiles and hands-on treatments.

As usual for KUON, the collection centers around classic menswear silhouettes elevated by thoughtful construction. Outerwear includes an indigo-dipped leather rider’s jacket and bomber jackets that feature salt-shrunken nylon shells and sakiori-trimmed plackets, for instance, with more sakiori paneling and boro patchwork appearing on otherwise understated cardigans, sweaters and slacks. Worn-in workwear, like washed denim jackets and KUON’s signature heavily-patched tailoring, accompanies items that draw from tradition, like collarless down jackets and thickly-woven vests.

Check out the seasonal editorial in the slideshow above and visit KUON’s website for more information on the FW20 collection, now hitting stockists across the globe.

Elsewhere in Japan, alk phenix showcased its high-tech cold weather wearables.
