Besides it’s outsized contributions to the world’s cultural identity, like samurais, ramen and Ken Watanabe, one of the best things about Japan is NEPENTHES‘ seasonal editorials. You can’t beat them for feel, whether they’ve taken to the countryside for an organic jaunt or opted for a more conceptual take on a range, like in their latest effort, A Specimen Room. The editorial draws inspiration from anthropology and traditional costumes as NEPENTHES has mixed Engineered Garments‘ SS14 collection with vintage pieces in an unforgettably fresh manner. The photography by Atsushi Nishijima (Jima) and styling by Shin Murayama seal the deal.
