With its roots in streetwear, Japanese brand PHENOMENON is pushing into new territory for FW12. Their NOSTALGIA collection is effectively turning classics on their heads, with subtle and not-so-subtle details being added to staple street pieces to eye catching effect. Starting with a bomber jacket adorned with a beautiful horse print on the front and a matching box fit tee, the brand nods towards a high fashion aesthetic (although of course, high fashion of this nature is currently taking its cues from street wear, so maybe it’s just going full-circle…). Long sleeve boxy tees also offer a new take on the familiar, while holding down the brand’s street identity are more military-inspired jackets and button downs in cotton ripstop. It’s a strong release from PHENOMENON and one which is slightly different from the norm. (Photography: Hypebeast)
