In stark contrast to the Damir Domma post we just made is the new lookbook from Nepenthes founder Keizo Shimizu’s South 2 West 8 label.  A heavily Americana influenced, outdoors, hunting and fishing aesthetic, it contains the now familiar checks, tweeds, coduroy, native american patters, etc, etc, etc…….  There are some fantastic individual pieces in here, and I like how they have overdone the look for humorous effect.  However, what I find most interesting about this collection is the way it progress from very traditional, early 1900s influenced styles to more modern hi-tech items offering a real mix of heritage pieces that we rarely see from these types of labels.
