JAPANESE denim brand Edwin has released its new spring/summer 2014 menswear collection, which sees the craft label take on first time fits, reinterpretations and new wash processes.
HOPING to merge innovative concepts with established models, a more tapered fit jean with mid-rise in the form of the ED75 has been brought in to sit between the classic ED55 and slim-fit ED80 style.
KEEN to show a continued emphasis on fine Japanese, French and Italian fabrics, an additional focus has been placed on developments in the technical construction of outerwear. Seam sealed, laser cutting and bonding are a regular fixture.
ELSEWHERE in the collection, two key prints have been revisited, with authentic Hawaiian and camouflage patterns sitting alongside t-shirts, fine gauge knitwear, tailored chinos and Bermuda shorts.
ESTABLISHED in Japan in 1947, Edwin was born from creator Mr Tsunemi’s desire to produce a range of denim with a greater standard of quality, craftsmanship and integrity.
LOOKING ahead to AW14, the brand has announced plans for a project with Parisian motorcycle collective, Blitz, with another as yet unnamed collaborator set to join.
THE SS14 collection is available now from the EDWIN Webshop and retailers worldwide.
