Last week we set our sights on Seoul and now we travel further east to Japan for a look at the clothing worn during the country's Clutch Collection Show. Created by Atsushi Matsushima, editor-in-chief of CLUTCH magazine - one of Japan’s leading men’s heritage style publications - the show played host to foreign buyers and exhibitors. Walking around the sites, attendees could take in the country's unique approach to heritage style in Yokohama, just a 30-minute trip from Tokyo. Brands like Anachronorm, The REAL McCOY’S, Studio D’artisan, Lewis leathers and Viberg were present among 84 Japanese labels, with the creatives behind each brand one-upping each other in terms of outfit.

Unsurprisingly, heritage was the order of the day, with appearances of heavy and treated denim at an all-time high. Customized pieces and vintage finds, meanwhile, sat comfortably alongside street staples like Nike high-tops and Vans Slip-Ons. Steering clear of hyped items so common to other fashion capitals, the small but influential exhibition proved the people that make up its core believe in the products their careers depend on.
