After the debut of its Spring/Summer 2019 collection, Japan’s up-and-coming brand YUKI HASHIMOTO returns with a lookbook for Spring/Summer 2020. Pursuing a “New Order” that respects the history and culture of fashion while designing pieces that go beyond current trends, “Y27=F2RM7LA” includes experimental, workwear-inspired items along with a variety of sleek leather bags.

T-shirts take on neon-colored stitching, black and white-colored blocks cover the knees of pants and graphics, created by photographer Kazuhito Ishikawa, are found on the backs of T-shirts. The collection subverts conventional ideas of workwear with quirky details that include ties placed on the arms of shirts instead of the fronts, half of a leather vest imposed on a trench coat and moto jacket collars fixed on tweed blazers. YUKI HASHIMOTO also worked in collaboration with KITAYAMA STUDIO, a Beijing-based leather goods brand, to release a variety of bags. Styles include fanny packs, top-handle and over-the-shoulder bags — all in white, gray, black and orange colorways.

Yuki Hashimoto is a Japanese designer who worked as a design assistant for brands such as Raf SimonsMason Margiela and Kris Van Assche. He draws inspiration from experiences that express raw and sometimes contradictory emotions; his colorful pieces take on dark tones, while mixing different materials and styles.
