Designer: Bristol Los Angeles

Location: New York, NY

Season: Spring/Summer 2018

Key Pieces: Mixing workwear with sportswear, hard-wearing denim is given sporty side stripe details in coordinating chore coats and snap-button popper pants. Vertical stripe resort shirts channel a modern tourist attitude, and a mock neck tee in dusty pink is equally on-trend, as does a cupro set featuring a zipper-top shirt and basketball shorts.

Editor’s Notes: Bristol Los Angeles co-designer Luke Tadashi wanted to go back to basics with this collection. Part of the reason was to rediscover why he wanted to get into fashion in the first place, so he dug deep into his first memories of fashion, which was when he flipped through issues of basketball lifestyle magazine Slam as an 8-year-old kid.

The way the publication framed sport as an intersection of style and self-expression spoke to him, and it's why a strong basketball aesthetic continues to influence the clothes. It's also the reason the looks are called "issues."

"That magazine really changed my life," he says. "It has this raw, street 'this is me, and I'm unapologetic.'"

One of the shows that kicked off New York Fashion Week: Men's at New York Men's Day, the denim-heavy collection is also a return-to-roots for Bristol, which started as a denim brand. Through mixing it with touches of athletic inspiration, Tadashi creates a nice synergy between sporty uniforms and utilitarian menswear tropes.
