Boundary-pushing menswear label elephant TRIBAL fabrics has long toyed with notions of hybrid garments and diverse inspiration. Diverting from the sense of lightness that pervaded Spring/Summer 2021, Fall/Winter 2021 leans into the latter ethos, incorporating a variety of stylistic cues into its new lineup that range from traditional menswear to retro Americana.

Key to the proceedings is an air of sophistication, a pervading aim to produce versatile garments that aren’t held to a single era in time. This is exemplified by knit cardigans upgraded with double zippers, collarless smoking coats, warped quarter-zip pullovers and corduroy-laden bomber jackets, bolstering classic motifs with updated textural appeal. Militaristic tags grace mixed-material coats, wool field jackets and layered waffle-knit sweaters alike, reinforcing elements of army style that coincide with a plethora of old-school tailoring, including a selection of pleated pants finished off with snappy suspenders.

Keep up with the young label via elephant TRIBAL fabrics’ Instagram page, website and international stockists like CRACKFLOOR.

Elsewhere in Japan, a similar sense of high-low mix pervaded RIOT FACETASM’s SS21 fare while Sillage presented loungey “Essentials.”
