Japanese label Inpaichthys Kerri, admittedly one we’re not familiar with, put together this frontrunner in the Fall Winter 2013 Collection of the Year Competition. The fact that Ivy/Collegiate/Prep has been done to death means we get particularly excited when a brand does it right. Yes, they’ve borrowed liberally from Teruyoshi Hayashida’s Take Ivy, but from the madras windbreakers to the the fraternity drinking jacket, everything strikes the right balance between authentic and modern. The Inpaichthys Kerri, by the way, is a Brazilian fish. So there’s that as well. Head to the gallery.
