A collaboration between Japanese brands LABRAT and WACKO MARIA:

 

Interesting enough offering until I saw the “Guilty Parties” rockers on the jacket pictured on the right, and the name tapes on the left jacket, one of which reads “UPSETTER”.  Seems to me like an anti military statement, which I am definitely not a fan of.

What’s the deal with the “Marvelous” patch?  Looks out of place, like something off a mechanic’s work jacket.

¥36,750 ($470 USD) at Berberjin

An interesting fall/winter offering from Japanese label SOPHNET:

If someone blindly described this shirt to me I would have definitely threw up a little bit in my mouth.  Seeing the picture though, I actually really like it.  The way the flannel shirt underneath peeks through is really unique.

Available at SOPHNET stockists for ¥25,200 ($322 USD)

Thoughts?

Japanese clothing brand A Bathing Ape‘s AAPE division teams up with Pepsi:

Collabs such as this are obviously just for fun, and I fully approve.  I’d like to know what goes on behind the scenes with the agreement though… obviously Pepsi is a bigger company than BAPE so that’s a huge advantage gaining that much exposure for a streetwear brand.  On the other hand a collaboration such as this gives Pepsi quit a bit of extra street cred. which is always a good thing to have in such a cutthroat industry.

Thoughts?

Dot Camo Collection

MIL-STD-09-6-2012

A collaboration between Japanese labels The Contemporary Fix and Swagger:

 

The camo pattern is British woodland.   The polka dots make this collection less wearable in my opinion, but I suppose that’s probably part of the allure for a lot of people.  Something this obscure is bound to turn some heads and make a statement.

Available for purchase over at Magaseek where the shorts are ¥21,840 ($280 USD), Jacket is ¥43,890 ($560 USD), vest ¥22,890 ($292), and cropped pants are ¥26,040 ($332).

What do you guys think?  Head to toe camo a good look for fall?  If not would you at least cop one of these items to wear as an accent piece?
