Following the unveiling of its military-heavy FW17 collection, EDWIN has a capsule collection on the horizon that honors the brand's Japanese heritage.
Paying homage first and foremost to the Japanese brotherhood known as the Otokodate, the collection features stripped-back, traditional Japanese imagery. The Otokodate were gangs of tough and fearless peacekeepers and date back to the early Edo period in Japan when they were prominent in literature and theatre. They gained a reputation for protecting locals from lawless low-ranking samurai and quickly became heroes by defending their neighborhoods from injustice.
EDWIN pays tribute with a collection that's both considerate to Japanese history and fashion-forward using a minimalist aesthetic and no color, everything here is black and white. The collection features a range of winter-ready pieces including a knitted scarf and hat, two t-shirts, two sweaters and a long-sleeved tee.
