doublet isn’t a brand that shies away from delivering something unexpected. The Japanese label always takes a playful approach with each collection, and this season’s is no exception. doublet’s Fall 2021 runway was swept with a mix of styles that call on childhood nostalgia and vintage styles.
A collection filled with stuffed animals, bright bubblegum palettes and ’80s-inspired silhouettes colored the stage. Featured in the lineup were garments like bright green one-piece blazers, a glossy green leather jacket made to look like a giant cactus, velvet overalls with stuffed animals stitched on, bootleg denim, a hooded puffer jacket with panda ears and shiny nylon trousers, to mention a few. Each piece was elaborate and demonstrated the label’s affinity for breaking expectations while showing off imaginative cuts.
A good example is a brown oversized faux-fur coat that comes with a plush camel stitched on the left side. This motif is repeated across a fuzzy bucket hat and a messenger bag, while other pieces like knitted cat scarves, dark wine-colored leather overalls and mustard yellow suits round off the expansive lineup.
