’90s Sports Vibes Meets Traditional Asian Garbs in The Common-Folk’s SS17 Collection
Coming all the way for the six side (Toronto, Canada), The Common-Folk has decided to hit up the best coast’s sun-kissed, beach-side streets of Los Angeles’ Venice Beach for the setting to its latest collection offering. Seasoned for Spring/Summer 2017, the range brings on a very retro ’90s sportswear vibe on to its more traditional Asian-type silhouettes, creating an interesting juxtaposition that we totally dig. In keeping to the sports theme, the collection is officially dubbed “THERE IS NO “I” IN SPORTS,” and includes oversized camo-print kimono jackets, classic baseball-style jerseys, oversized printed pants, an array of caps and more.
The collection gets presented in both images and video by Joseph Azulay, which you’ll find in the jump above. While the shot looks does a good job of showcasing the collection ensemble and its pairings, the video serves as a vibe offering, with a classic beach-side skater soundtrack and visuals that makes you want to hit up Venice yourself as much as wanting to cop the pieces themselves. Check out the video above, as well as the lookbook images throughout, then head here to see about copping stuff from the “THERE IS NO “I” IN SPORTS” collection.
