So far there’s been no shortage of bomber jackets, jogger pants and anoraks on the New York runways and although N.Hoolywood designer Daisuke Obana offered up these active-influenced items, his take on the pieces felt less conventional. He achieved this by utilizing fluid fabrics, painterly abstract prints and typography from Tokyo-based calligrapher Mikitype.
Obana’s anorak had a high, slightly draped neck and was free from any zippers or fasteners. His jogger pant was made from suit material and styled with a relaxed, matching blazer. Bomber jackets, sweatshirts and hoodies were embellished with Mikitype’s calligraphy, which straddles nicely a line between romantic and street.
Other hits included the loose T-shirts with triangular seams near the chest and the minimal trenchcoats without any buttons, which are meant to be pulled over the head similar to an anorak.
