WTAPS Spring/Summer '19
While the prior season deviated from the norm ever-so-slightly, WTAPS’ forthcoming SS19 arrangement is a return to form, continuing where the label left off on its long yet warming love letter to militaria.
Recruiting the talents of Akio Hasegawa, former POPEYE and monocle fashion director, the styling choices put on display are well attuned to the roots of Tetsu Nishiyama’s fleshed out universe. Many fan favorites make a comeback here, holding true to the classic look of the BUDS shirting and outerwear while substantial M65s and more minimally branded tops offer up a simplistic alternative. Modular jackets explore utilitarian heaven in its excess compartments, standing next to the weather resistant Keys Parka and contemporary Hide Coat. Trousers opt for the tried-and-true in their various compositions, with hoodies, football jerseys, half-zips, and tees arriving either blank or ornamented by this season’s diverse set of graphics.
Be sure to grab a look at the entire set of imagery below, and stay tuned as the collection rolls out.
