Canadian label The Common Folk has unveiled its FW16 collection, titled "Kimon-Family Crests," and it's inspired by the ruling samurai warriors of Japan's Muromachi period.

The inspiration manifests itself in the use of a family emblem, or "Kimon," across a wide range of pieces, including long and short-sleeve shirts, camouflage cargo pants, overalls, and dad caps. Similar emblems used to be seen on all flags, tents, weapons and armor during the many battles in the Muromachi era (approximately 1336 to 1573,) until the Japanese government abolished their use after World War II.

The garments in the new drop are all handmade in the brand's Toronto studio from artisanal, shuttle-loomed Japanese fabrics. Check out the lookbook above, then head over to The Common Folk's online store to shop in full.

The brand also shot a video at the oldest factory in Kojima, featuring the creator of cult Japanese denim brand Kamikaze Attack discussing the process of creating a pair of overalls. You can watch that below.

In other fashion news, here’s what people wore to Palace’s hyped “Ultimo” FW16 drop.
