In January, during London Collections: Men, online retailer MRPORTER.COM unveiled their collaboration with BEAMS – an American inspired Japanese lifestyle shop.
BEAMS has been responsible for developing many private labels to cultivate constantly changing styles and trends, in addition to their curation of intentionally sourced selection of designer brands and products.
SASQUATCHFABRIX strives to establish an aesthetic inspired by current social conditions and urban renewal, and the nine piece offering for MR PORTER achieves exactly that with provocative prints and streetwear takes on customary Japanese styles.
Their ‘firework’ print is prevalent throughout and stands out in the oversized jersey tees and overdyed short sleeve shirt with matching shorts. A hero piece in the collection is the souvenir coach jacket, complete with traditional gold embroidery, the epitome of classic/contemporary fusion.
