East meets west this season, as our designers draw inspiration from travel to Japan and take cues from local culture here in our hometown of Los Angeles.
The result is a tailoring of two cities– a story of contrasts and comparisons, where the Land of the Rising Sun intersects with Sunset Boulevard.
The collection blends the old and the new with retro sportswear influences, workwear references, and hints of 1950’s surf culture and vacay style. Concepts of layering, mixing lifestyles, and combining fabrics dominate. The palette scapes from land to sea, with a range of blues, safari greens, tonal neutrals and berry reds.
Asian-inspired florals, vintage palm prints, Hawaiian shirts, and garment dyed knits create a JapAngeles hybrid– a melting pot of Cali cool juxtaposed with Japanese culture.
