Tokyo-based label Graphpaper has just presented its Spring/Summer 2021 collection. Set against a clean backdrop, the brand, headed by alpha co.ltd founder Takayuki Minami, displays an expansive range of minimal garments, emphasizing its affinity for understated palettes, meticulous cuts and textiles crafted by domestic mills to Graphpaper’s unflinching standards.
Much of the collection keeps in line with Graphpaper’s penchant for neutral tones, accompanying the versatile shades with a handful of brighter tones, like blue, pink and yellow, that elevate various garments that match the sleek, understated design cues presented elsewhere. Silhouettes are primarily loose and lightweight, as trench coats, blazers, chambray shirts, half-zip sweaters, nylon shorts, and trousers are all cut for maximum warm weather comfort.
One standout item is a navy parka that sports a subtle sheen; Graphpaper often crafts sporty layering pieces to accent its consistent offering of baggy shirting and loose jeans. This parka features a raised collar, covered placket, two deep pockets at the waist. Elsewhere, a blue mac coat is another key item, reflecting Graphpaper’s far-reaching design ethos, updating staple menswear with exquisite attention to detail and dramatic shapes.
