Like Spring/Summer 2020, BLACK WEIRDOS‘ Spring/Summer 2021 collection revels in audacious prints and patterns without straying too far from accessible silhouettes. Relaxed shirts, cozy hoodies and militaristic touches reign in the adventurous accents that appear throughout the Japanese brand’s latest offering.
Overseen by artist MAGDRON and tattooist Megumu, the Japanese brand is famed for its playful graphic approach, which manifests in SS21’s splashy tie-dye and playful accessories, including an eyeball pillow that mirrors some of the prints laden upon several garments’ sleeves and chest. Color-blocked shirts and cardigans toy with convention while all-over printed pajama sets and a timely tribute to wrestler Ox Baker lean into the realm of the light-hearted.
Key pieces range from strappy outerwear to graphic bomber jackets, each complementing a host of militaristic garments that update signature BLACK WEIRDOS motifs. Some louche items — including a satin coaches jacket and waffle weave hoodie — feature “BRAIN RESORT EXPERIENCE” tags to reinforce a loungey mood and a host of mushroom-laden items gently tap into the contemporary taste for trek gear, ensuring that the expansive collection leaves no stylistic rock unturned.
