Tokyo-label JieDa has been one to watch for quite some time now – we even featured the brand in our Under the Radar series last year. Founded by Japanese designer, Hiroyuki Fujita, JieDa has just served up yet another strong collection for FW17. While their previous SS17 offering reimagined the now-ubiquitous trend for oversized proportions with a peachy, candy-coloured palette, the latest remains resolutely neutral and of course, dramatically voluminous.
Silhouettes are now wider, cropped and cinched for an irregular fit that’s so wrong, it’s right. Graphics play on the quieter end of the sartorial spectrum and leather combat belts look exceptional with raw, blue denim. However, what’s most captivating about this collection is its expert lesson in layering. Most especially when a loose, crisp shirt with unfinished sleeves is skillfully paired beneath a drop-shoulder, black crew-neck at an uneven angle, and then sealed off with a pair of billowing pants and architectural sneakers. It's a standout, daring look.
Pour through JieDa’s visually sumptuous lookbook above and dare to disagree. We expect big things to come from this rising Tokyo label, and its low-key, pared-back aesthetic.
