Neighborhood Unveils Autumn/Winter 2020 Collection
Known for a modern and progressive take on the motorcycle culture and featuring military inspirations in the design process, Shinuke Takizawa’s Neighborhood is one of Japan’s most influential streetwear labels.
The brand’s Autumn/Winter 2020 collection comes with a fresh new take on the rugged aesthetic, while maintaining a chic approach.
The collection consists of multiple oversized silhouettes, made to amplify the aspect of comfort. The fabric play in the collection is another interesting facet - from the use of chemically treated denim look-alike to various explorations of synthetic and natural blends, the collection also has hints of plaid here and there.
What looks like denim is actually a version of chemically treated cotton/polyester indigo fabric. The jacket is completed with the use of sleek panels.
Embracing certain vintage aesthetics of street wear, the collection is complimented by the use of classic paisley bandanna prints on jackets, bucket hats, caps and scarves. With a fun interaction between blues and greys, a few pieces also exhibit the use of soft neutrals.
These oversized jackets have been made in polyester, covered overall in the vintage bandana print, placed in a patchwork arrangement.
The most interesting piece of the collection has to be the Cargo Vest. Inspired by the life jackets used in the 80s, the jackets are made from water repellent taffeta nylon fabric, with adjustors for a personalized fit.
