A fashion collection built around the concept of “Cosmological Religion” may seem too obtuse to imagine, but leave it to Sankuanz to fully realize such elite philosophical notions in the world of apparel. The Chinese brand’s new SS17 collection transforms the weight of the cosmos into a line of clothing that seems apt for both a coming intergalactic war and street-style lookbook of the not-so-distant future.
Coming just in time for the anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, Sankuanz SS17 is both practical and authentic space-wear. The collection’s pieces include a variety of streetwear staples, from trench coats and jumpsuits to a whole line of caps. But what sets this line apart is its construction, which employs a variety of materials used in actual spacecraft like transparent cuben fiber, dyneema and aramid.
The prominence of camo and space-shuttle flight jackets keep a focus on the military-like precision of the collection, while the line’s element of religion can be gleaned in pieces like the jumpsuits, which are inspired by Tibetan monk robes of all things. NASA and Air Force logo patches provide yet another layer of authenticity to a collection that already seemed beamed from a future space station.
