Anachronorm Spring/Summer 2012 Collection
Japanese brand Anachronorm are based in Okayama, an area renowned for producing some of the finest denim in the world. The brand’s location gives them a unique level of access to the rare, exclusive fabrics that Okayama’s mills produce as well as the factories and workshops which craft Anachronorm clothing using authentic techniques and antique machinery. Continuing to produce quality clothing with a ‘new vintage’ workwear influence, this season’s collection includes a number of staple, essential pieces, elevated by Anachronorm’s uncompromising attention to quality and detail. Chambray and Oxford shirts, tees and hooded jersey sweatshirts are all produced to the highest level of quality, and are given unique character and a vintage feel with the addition of authentic workwear detailing and the expert use of fabric finishing, dyeing and washing techniques. Classic workwear pieces such as the pullover work jacket and Cinch back work pants are also updated with the use of subtle fabric combinations and unusual detailing accents. Perhaps the stand-out piece of the collection, the Tiger Chambray shirt is made from a pattern-woven fabric resembling vintage tapestries, with a jungle scene featuring tigers.
