Fresh from premiering its SS16 capsule collection “Memo” at the beginning of the season, the Taipei-based concept retail space Ne.Sense is officially launching its private label just under a year later. It is called “Necessity Sense,” and it is a brand that aims to impact much further beyond simple garments through the act of storytelling. The label provides a unique perspective on unspoken cultural issues with each collection.

With its first official collection, titled "YELLNOW," Necessity Sense has pulled inspiration from the immigrants during the California Gold Rush Era in 1850s. The collection is a tribute to all people that stand up for their own color, originality and indifferences. While using a zen perspective as the focal point to refer to the cultural issues, the collection represents a fluid mix of Eastern traditions with Western modernization.

Some of the elements on display in the collection include everything from unique pleats to hand-done embroideries, and its colors aim to represent the contrast between the dirty labor and luxury golds of the era. Elsewhere in the collection, particular standouts include pieces like the long split coats that reinterpret the silhouette of Chinese monk wear, while further Eastern influence can be found in the vintage Japanese uniforms, showcased liberally throughout the accompanying lookbook.

Necessity Sense's debut “YELLNOW” collection is available on the brand's online store in addition to select retailers like Harvey Nichols, H.Loranzo, Macchus, American Rag, and United Arrows.
