Needles Fall Winter 2013 from Keizo Shimizu

Nepenthes head Keizo Shimizu presents a superb Fall Winter collection for his Needles label. We’re told “The Needles Collection from the very personal viewpoint of  Keizo Shimizu…Each product is full of his aesthetic, and also it’s the source of all the creativity of Nepenthes.” Sitting at the heart of his mini empire, the brand does as it pleases, yes classic ‘menswear’ staples, work jackets, rolled cuffs, camo and the like are still present, however there’s a genuine sense of experimentation and originality with its modified ’90s references, off-beat layering and incredible fabrics. Take a look for yourself in our gallery.
