Anachronorm Spring/Summer 2012 collection

May 8, 2012

Here’s a look at a few pieces from Anachronorm’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection that have recently turned up at End Newcastle. Based in Okayama, an area of Japan renowned for producing some of the finest denim in the world, Anachronorm’s clothing is inspired by vintage workwear pieces and is inevitably influenced by Okayama’s rich industrial heritage.

The label creates ‘new vintage’ clothing if you will, with the aim of injecting character and a unique story into each and every item they produce. The brand’s location gives them a unique level of access to the rare, fabrics that Okayama’s mills produce, as well as factories and workshops using authentic techniques and antique machinery.

This season’s collection includes a number of staple pieces, but ones that are elevated the label’s uncompromising attention to quality and detail. Chambray and Oxford shirts, T-shirts and hooded sweatshirts are all present and beautifully made. Furthermore, each is given unique character and a vintage feel with the addition of authentic detailing and the expert use of fabric finishing, dyeing and washing techniques.

Classic workwear pieces such as pullover work jackets and Cinch back work pants can be found in the range, and these too are updated with the use of subtle fabric combinations and unusual detailing. The absolute pick of the bunch though is the Tiger Chambray shirt – it’s made from pattern-woven fabric which resembles vintage tapestries, and is as unique as is is ace.

If you fancy any of the above it’s available form everyone’s favourite Geordie Menswear shop here, for more information on the brand itself, go to the website here: Anachronorm.
