yes yes nice.
I'm a big fan but always forget to post about them. Definitely in line with brands like Digawel and Efilevol but weirdly underrepresented. One of my favorite things they ever did was the pink cotton (maybe velvet? i forget) suit from two years ago. the jacket is like 70% off at a secondhand store near me. Always tempted.

Phingerin is a brand that designs clothes full of whimsy and fun. Lots of patterns, colors, and excellent outerwear. They do a great take on the coaches jacket and their coats are also fantastic. Much like Cyderhouse, Neon Sign, and Digawel, Phingerin creates fun pieces that riff on typical menswear standards and deviate from the norm while remaining extremely wearable. I'm a big fan of any brand that makes extensive use of plaids/windowpane patterns, so I've been a fan for a while. I think this is part of what makes Japanese clothing so appealing to me, how so many of the designers are able to create wearable pieces that play with your expectations of what a piece of clothing should be. Brands like N. Hoolywood do so just enough to remain understated, brands like Phingerin make a statement with their out-there designs.

It's related to the Hollywood Ranch Market family (Blue Blue, Okura, etc.). Lots of basics and wearable items with some cool twists on standard items. It's a Japanese brand, so it's not actually designed by foreigners or anything. I think the name comes from the Western flintstone that drives a lot of the brand's products. Only problem I have with it is that some products are a little cheap (made in China, cheaper buttons/fabrics) whereas most of the HRM stuff is pretty decent. Some of it is made domestically and is quite nice. Still, anything you can get for cheap will be worth the price.

Stoked on that. Mikio Sakabe was nominated as well, she's another Japanese designer and does some pretty cool womenswear. She didn't make it to the finals but imo she deserved the nomination at least

Anyways, quick Facetasm clothes post, this brand slays

Auralee is legit! Coincidentally just bought a knit from them

It's the most amazing knit I've ever owned. Nubby cashmere and smells like puppies. Also handled some of their outerwear (simple but nice) and some knit denim (cool fabric and nice cut).

Christian Dada is really good. Usually overpriced but good. It's usually paired with Dressed/Undressed, another brand that came out of Harajuku at about the same time

haha thanks for keeping the thread alive. I have been way too lazy for a proper update. Toga is good but overpriced, the Marni comparison is pretty apt. I was disappointed to see some of their stuff MIC despite the huge price tag. Also they do a couple popular women's lines.

Sou-Mu

Real pain getting pictures of their collections off the internet. They have all of the images on their site but it's lightboxed and you'd have to prnt scrn each one and crop and reupload...... Fashionsnap has some but their domain seems to shift sometimes and break image links. Anyways Sou-Mu does some great drapey stuff, really innovative bizarre pieces. A lot of their clothes are pretty free-sized and genderless (though they do cut some pieces with body types in mind). I have an amazing thing from them that can be worn in a massive variety of ways, it'd kind of a vest, kind of nothing in particular. Great thing though. A store near me stocks them with similar amazing brands like Balmung, Design Complicity, Dr. Franken, and more.

WHOWHAT

Image
Spoiler:
Image
Image
Image
Image


Whowhat is a unisex clothing brand heavily inspired by the clothing of India and the middle East, with plenty of nods to traditional Japanese clothes and craftsmanship. A lot of drapey, loose silhouettes with subtle details to ensure that the focus is on the silhouette more than the clothes. Nearly everything is cut quite large (besides the jeans), and smaller people can buy smaller sizes to make sure it's not too huge. There's a lot of fun proportions play to be had with the label, as each collection contains cropped pants, shorts, long shirts, extended jackets, flowy coats, slim jeans, accessories, and more. All of the fabrics are crazy nice, and the reconstructed jeans are a particularly cool item. Too small for me but still neat. The complete Whowhat 'look' has been one of my favorites for a while.

Different types of clothing emerged as standards
in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.Among others,
military wear and clothes that have their roots
in work have also been cherished as fashionable wear.
Deriving flintstone from those eternal standards
and processing them through our own filters,
we design clothes “slowly.”


Here the term “slowly” means:
・Crafting original clothes carefully.
・Creating clothes that are adaptable to different styles of different times.
・Presenting the antithesis of a fast-moving modern society and fashion industry and slowing it down.
