meanswhile Autumn/Winter '19
Contrary to the norm, where garments exist as they are, meanswhile’s world is one of total utility with each offering acting as a tool of many kinds. AW19 is but a refinement of their principles, with presented craft fine tuned to the utmost degree.
Drawing from templates often time worn, the designs quite frequently form past their pages with minute detailing pushing an aesthetic unique to the Japanese label. Spinning military systems in the same fashion, the latest seasonal arrangements grasp inspiration from the 7-layer military structure dubbed the Extended Climate Warfighter Clothing System. Each piece is represented — from the thin underbellies to the ever-reliable down fill coats — with accessories by way of boonie hats taking on somewhat playful grid prints. Striping continues on in various forms across with noragi-like outers, which feature almost traditionally styled graphics across their navy-constructed bodies, while Winter-geared parkas adorn with pockets at both arms and outfit in the brand’s signature zig-zag placket. Simplistic basics are more than they lead on as their execution is heavily reminiscent of a rugby top doused in militaristic energy, while coinciding overcoats, dyed blousons, and much more flesh out yet another enthused display.
