Engineered Garments – Autumn/Winter 2012 collection
Imagery from the the latest New York’s Engineered Garments lookbook has started to do the internet rounds and I thought I’d give them a feature too, what with it looking a bit tasty and all. So below is a selection of pictures from their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection.
For me it feels much more immediate than last season, but that may be down to my own preference for layering and more Autumnal collections. It provides more of what you’d expect from Daiki Suzuki, with his strong leaning to American work wear and military attire, which is tempered with florals and other interesting prints.
Heavy on the layering, the images give a hint at the breadth of the collection – outerwear is as strong as ever with the trail parka in the collection once again, this time in new fabrications. There’s also a rather natty varsity jacket, numerous iterations of the humble blazer and pick of the lot, the long parka in the first image – I really hope it makes its way to stockists over here.
Add to that simple accessories like ties and pocket squares plus interesting garments like capes, aprons and half gillets, plus new fabrics like navy wool camouflage and woolen denim and you’ve got a collection with plenty to get your teeth (and wallet) into when it launches soon.
