2019 “Suburbia” Editorial
As time abrades the fabric and dye of garments, some styles withstand the winnows of trends, detouring back in vogue. While each vintage piece represents an epoch of fashion history and an era of craftsmanship, vintage wear also inspires designers to reciprocate attires in their idiosyncratic aesthetics. Amid by the cluster of French workwear and American militarism, our 2019 “Suburbia” Editorial captures the current manoeuvre that designers take in reinvigorating modes of ere, eroding pristine fabrics of date. Featured brands include Needles, Polo Ralph Lauren Polo Sport, Prada, Billionaire Boys Club and more.
20 years in designing American-inspired garments, Keizo Shimizu of NEPENTHES holds his affinity while remaining true to his Japanese identity.

Joined together by flatlock stitching, every multi-colored shirt is unique and assembled by hand — a perfect demonstration of the East-West amalgamation. Accompanied by the AMBUSH Lighter Case Necklace for a modern twist to the vintage look with Polo Ralph Lauren’s latest 90s’-inspired Polo Sport Cap.
