WTAPS Channels ’90s Baggy Silhouettes For Its S/S17 Collection
Japanese fashion label WTAPS–which stands for the military shooting technique signal of double-tapping–is known for their contemporary take on American military and workwear staples. The much coveted brand continues those efforts for its latest Spring/Summer 2017 collection, but has brought in silhouettes that fit right at home during the ’90s. The collection’s range includes a solid array of oversized–bordering classic “baggy”–apparel pieces, from pants to jackets, pull-overs and other basic outerwear pieces. As a whole, the collection resembles something straight out of a retro hollywood high school flick, which we can totally get behind.
The lookbook that highlights the collection comes in thanks to Japanese print title GRIND magazine for its latest no.71 issue. Working with photographer Katsuhide Morimoto and srylist Lambda Takahashi, the pieces are accentuated through the use of tonal colored backdrops, keeping focus on the superb job of Takahashi who has managed to bring back a sense of nostalgia through the looks.
