Champion Japan: Reverse Weave Collection F/W 2011

Champion Japan are obviously operating in a different manner than their US/North American counterparts, cause you sure don’t see any collections like this coming from this continent. Here is a look at the Reverse Weave collection from Champion Japan fall/winter 2011. This is only one of the many different collections thats makes up the full seasonal range, but this one would have to be my favorite. The Reverse Weave is what Champion is know for, as it is their patented method of producing their jersey garments. I have always had love for Champion products cause I grew up wearing them alongside Russell Athletics, another classic US sportswear company. I hope that the North American divisions of these types of brands realize that they need to be taking notes. Click through for the rest of the collection.

Natal Autumn/Winter 2011

Natal Design has been in the game for over a decade, and this season’s collection continues their pattern of hits, most notably with the drop-crotch denim and the 2-material vests.  With a tendency sometimes towards more ‘environmental’ styling (read: borderline hippy), it’s only about half the collection that works for me, but the standouts are damn good, from the flannels to the jeans, which make way more sense on than I would have thought… click through for the rest of my seasonal choices from Natal for a/w 2011…

Pawn Fall/Winter 2011

Another great Japanese motorcycle-influenced streetwear line, I recently discovered Pawn through Uniforme, who also sell 84/85 favorites FUCT and F*ucking Awesome. This run includes three collaborations, a shirt each with Schott and Vans, and a pant with Dickies, nice to additions to a tight collection of pretty straight ahead garage styles. And while a little overbranded a times, all in Pawn looks pretty dope… more after the jump

nabiis Fall/Winter 2011 Video

Taiwanese bike/accessory/clothing brand nabiis shot this video for their f/w 2011 collection, their first of three showcasing this season’s offerings. In their words,

“Each video represents a different spirit… freedom on the road, freedom from the law, and freedom from yourself. These three spirits form nabiis’ trinity. The spirit of “Gett’n Over”

Feeling the style and editing here, and using a classic Boards Of Canada track never hurst either; looking forward to the next two vids.

Topo Designs: New Products Fall/Winter 2011

Colorado based Topo Designs has been turning out a few new products to accompany the rest of their fall/winter 2011 collection.  The new products featured are the Camp Blanket, Cinch Bag and the Shelter Shirts. The Camp blanket is a classic style wool blanket in red with a black stripe detail. The Cinch Bag is a small waist or over the shoulder bag meant to carry your small everyday items, very reminiscent of rock climbing chalk bags. Finally there are the Shelter Shirts, featuring prints of classic outdoors shelters such as Geodomes and A-Frames. All the products, like the rest of the collection, are made in the U.S.A. Keep reading for a few more images of the Camp Blanket and the Cinch Bag.

Cyderhouse Autumn/Winter 2011

Designer Yuji Okamoto’s Cyderhouse has released this lookbook for their a/w 2011 collection entitled Marman, with some serious sea monster overtones going on. I don’t really know much about the label, but I’m definitely feeling this presentation and the leathers, which seem to be a Cyderhouse specialty. Cool to see something with a bit of concept, click through for the rest of the lookbook.

is-ness Fall/Winter 2011

Had a bit of a heart attack when I came across is-ness this week when doing my regular rounds through my Japanese source sites. What a flawlessly executed label; taking cues from classic California outdoors wear (read: Patagonia) and adding stylistic and construction nuances that are explicitly Japanese, is-ness’ f/w 2011 collection is as solid a front-to-back concept run as I’ve seen. Wild colors and patterns, a wide array of materials, and a seemingly high-function cold weather commitment make this so, so appealing to me. Some of the pieces are a little cray for my personal taste, but taken individually a lot of this would integrate and pop with a more toned-down existing wardrobe… basically, this line is RAD. Hit the jump for 40 more awesome pieces from is-ness f/w ’11.
