Ashton Hirota went on an athletic kick for his unisex streetwear line, citing inspiration from an imaginary scenario in which “Rocky Balboa and Sporty Spice had a transgender love child fascinated by ‘Tron.’” As with previous collections, he offered oversize hoodies, high-waist HotPants, baggy knee-length shorts and stovepipe pants. He added Neoprene to his foundation of fabrics, which also included leather, denim and silk. Not a fan of prints, he gave an extra dimension to his black, white, red and gray color palette by using trapunto stitching, colorblocking and seams featuring zippers or contrasting strips. He also advocated layering clothes like armor, as in a men’s look that piled a bomber jacket over a button-up shirt over a kilt over pants. Considering how edgy his fans are, it served Hirota well to continue stepping out of his comfort zone by offering new silhouettes like peak-lapel blazers.
