The Needles Spring-Summer ’15 lookbook was recently released on the Nepenthes site, and features Keizo Shimizu’s customary reworkings of vintage, military and sportswear classics with his unique sensibility. There is also a sneak peek at a number of completely new styles from the Rebuild by Needles sub-line; the most outstanding of which are the hunting shirts that utilize a vast array of woodland, duck hunter and desert camouflage, just to name a few.

—01. Small.
—02. Large.

Words

These Rebuild by Needles pieces bear a strong resemblance to something we might see from Comme, but that doesn't take away from the great look and interesting re-imagining of the two garments put together. While there are also some jacket styles available, these layered long coats are especially beautiful, mixing different patterns, tones and textures for a very successful outcome.

01. Coat.
02. Vest.

Words

Recently received at Nepenthes, these Quilted Liners by ts(s) offer an element of refinement not always associated with insulated pieces. Likely to be a great layering option when the cold weather sets in, the rich colours and nicely cut necklines add an extra level of appeal to an otherwise practical purchase.
