Japanese brand THE NERDYS, as you might expect from their name, makes clothing that straddles the line between immaculate precision and stiff awkwardness, and the way they are presented follows suit. The upcoming FW16 collection, and accompanying editorial, feels like a mixture of expertly tailored outdoor wear and a lost family photo album from the early 1970s.
Many pieces maintain the clean aesthetic that THE NERDYS has built for themselves, namely the minimalist sweaters, single-breasted overcoats and high-waisted trousers that evoke a real preppy quality. But the element of homespun vintage appeal really arrives in pieces like the olive-green two piece suit, particularly when paired with the Oriental-carpet patterned shawl.
The collection will be available via THE NERDYS’ online store.
THE NERDYS are not alone, tac:tac also just released the first glimpse of their FW16 collection.
