MISTERGENTLEMAN‘s design ethos has shifted over the past several years, as the brand evolved from simple, minimalist looks to a more complex take on menswear, leading into a progressive selection of Fall/Winter 2021 looks. The late co-founder, Takeshi “Big-O” Osumi, worked on the collection right up until his untimely passing earlier this year, leaving an indelible mark on the brand’s future.
Key to this new range is a variety of hybrid garments and layering pieces, infusing otherwise recognizable silhouettes with unexpected mixed-material panels or accents. These ranged from deep pile-lined jackets to multi-knit sweaters to double-waisted trousers to trench coats with cut-outs that revealed leather sleeves.
This motif was maintained throughout, as shearling jackets were sliced into vests, militaristic jackets ballooned into sweaters and camouflage shorts sprouted quilted full-length pant legs. Balancing these wild experiments, explosions of faux fur, reflective PVC garments and various items printed with text was a range of MISTERGENTLEMAN’s signature tailored bits and short-length puffers.
