Editor’s Notes: Next Tuesday, March 12, marks the start of the SOUTH2 WEST8 Fall/Winter 2019 Exhibition in Shibuya. The FW19 lookbook places the cult fishing brand in a civic setting. Fishing outerwear is elevated with high quality fabrics and superior attention to detail. The E.H. fishing jacket exemplifies the brand’s artful tailoring, while the sateen jacket takes its influence from Tenkara jackets used in traditional Japanese fishing.
The collection also includes more contemporary silhouettes, including puffers, synthetic pile piping jackets, waxed cotton camouflage jackets, as well as lighter, cloth coats and Tenkara vests. There’s also a strong selection of plaid, string slack pants and cotton jersey sweat pants. More luxurious options include the loose fit, mohair sweater in dark mauve and red.
