Brand: SOUTH2 WEST8
Key Pieces: Highlighting the brand’s latest collection are the fishing mesh bucket hat and overcoat, complete with dyed camouflage patterning. Next to this, an array of geometric designs are seen sprawled across loose-fitting trousers and jackets, adding a twist of Arabian exploration to the offering.
Editor’s Notes: Keizo Shimizu’s passion for fly fishing is manifested throughout SOUTH2 WEST8’s SS20 line, with pocket-heavy, utilitarian layers drawing parallels to the technicality of the sport. Emanating from the ideals of Tenkara, Japan's traditional fishing technique, the brand’s latest excursion situates itself at the point where fashion meets function.
Together with the aforementioned pieces, the collection comprises a colorful range of button-up shirts, lightweight outerwear, and an expected splash of sportswear influence.
