Noted as one of the premiere labels to come out of South Korea, POST ARCHIVE FACTION has returned to unveil its “4.0” collection which introduces an experimental process into utility.

Moving past its observation of the broken through different forms of injury in its “3.0” collection, the latest range moves towards functionality. Exploring physical movements through a series of irregular and iterative representations of asymmetric form and collapsing shapes.

Once again developing through an in-depth study of its growing archive, the function of uniform serves as a starting point in the development of unusual and inexplicable garments. The design language of the “4.0” collection introduces peculiar seam line position and uniquely practical details such as stretchable elbow panels and dynamic expandable utility pockets. Aside from its usual utilization of sleek black and pale grey, POST ARCHIVE FACTION also introduced a striking color study fueled by hits of neon green, bright yellow, navy-green and blue-grey.

Leading the collection are light shell jackets dressed with asymmetric dual zipper closures and obscuring hoods, technical blazers and matching trousers marked by a resonating patterned design and zip-up blouson jackets that conform to body motion with stretch panels. “4.0” also features a play on traditional shirting expressed with engineered textiles, shirts are outfitted with unique pocketing choices, cutout designs packable hoods. Rounding up the collection are bottom options defined by maximalist pocketing, scrunched pleating, wrapping zippers and secure closures for enhanced fits.

Check out the lookbook above and head over to POST ARCHIVE FACTION’s official website to learn more about the “4.0” collection releasing for the Spring/Summer 2021 season.
