As we’ve already mentioned, we’ve just got back from Tokyo, where we spent the week visiting showrooms and stores, street shooting and gathering denim inspiration for the coming seasons. We stopped by Balance in Nakameguro to check out Anachronorm’s S/S 14 presentation, which was full of inspirational garments, surfaces and items.
The brand tapped their usual workwear aesthetic, exploring functional aprons, coveralls and chore coat silhouettes, but there were also some standout pieces that grabbed our attention; based on an archival snow camo that they picked up from a vintage dealer, the brand re-worked the simple chore jacket, creating a really modern item in printed white. They also experimented with a new, short-sleeveded spread-collar jacket, a key look that we’ve been exploring in our Denim Outlook: Items section for S/S 14.
Fabrics and finishes were particularly interesting this season, with an indigo floral re-worked into shirts, jackets and pants and a boro patched and repaired jean stealing the limelight. The looks were completed with awesome accessories such hats, indigo ties and striped beanies.
