Picking up right where Spring/Summer 2021 left off, tac:tac‘s Fall/Winter 2021 is another thoughtful selection of dramatically oversized apparel. Enormous overcoats, jackets, shirts and trousers crop up throughout the collection, demonstrating a consistent vision of genderless, ageless garments designed for comfort rather than trend.
Some garments seem drawn from the archives of Issey Miyake, whose eponymous company oversees tac:tac’s seasonal output. Miyake’s touch can be seen in the pleated snoods, Windcoat-like outerwear and clever textile exploration, like hybrid garments that blend slick nylon with pile fleece. Of course, even the similarly-minded goods are distinct, owing much to tac:tac’s inimitable design ethos.
Adjustable straps, cinches and other details allow for the customization of the voluminous garments, with a half-dozen splayed-out buttons granting one coat dynamic closure and some hooded pullover shirts offering cut-out arms that the wearer can wrap around their neck in place of a scarf. Of course, there are also plenty of comparably conventional goods rendered in high-end textiles, including ribbed knitwear, mesh-lined trench coats and wide high-rise trousers.
