Engineered Garments Spring/Summer 2013 collection

August 10, 2012

Yet another collection you won’t be able to buy for bloody ages, this time from Daiki Suzuki’s Engineered Garments and their range for Spring/Summer 2013. As with this Autumn/Winter (find that here), it’s once again another selection of black and white imagery, hardly conducive to knowing what you’re getting colour wise, but still gives a good idea of details and construction.

As a collection it continues down the same path as always, with the multi-layered and deconstructed aesthetic that fans of the label know and love still present. And once again it’s full of great pieces – outerwear’s as strong as ever, and the whole range is full of the kind of soft tailored, casual clothing that no-one does better.

It’s chock-a-block with different fabrics and finishes – Madras, patchwork, paisley prints, embroidery and colour blocking all sit alongside staples like chambray, cotton drill, cotton Oxford and linen. Shorts and blazers are the order of the day, all worn slightly crumpled with shirt and tie – Suzuki taking traditionally formal items and making them soft and casual like only he can.

My favourite piece is the colour blocked, hooded anorak with main pocket on the front and a smaller one towards the cuff of the left arm. I’ve no idea what colour it actually is but detailing looks top notch so hopefully the palette is too, I’m looking forward to seeing more images of this soon. Other than that it’s the striped shorts and anchor blazer that’s catching my eye.

    I like this very much but I always like what Daiki does. The parka you mention is a favorite of mine too.

    It’s another great collection by the look of these initial images & much better than this years range, which left me a little wanting. This however looks like a real return to form. Hopefully THe sizing is better too, it’s the one thing that really lets this label down imo.

    Another collection of stuff that looks good in pictures but fits like a sack of shite. Dunno where he gets his fit models from but they’re all fucking weird sizes if the clobber’s owt to go by.
