For SS23, APPLIED ART FORMS embraces ancient Japanese craftsmanship through selvage denim pulled from its dynamic records. The collection pays tribute to its Asian manufacturers and combines local fabrics with American detailing.
1940s US Navy uniforms are retooled in Japanese cotton, featuring utilitarian zippers and faded army numerals. Oversized menswear dominates the collection, supplying pocketed denim shirting and slouchy bottoms screen printed by the APPLIED ART FORMS team. Military-inspired button-downs boast dated photographs, completing the offering with summer-ready shorts and refurbished padded tote bags.
