Join us as we take a closer look at New York’s Engineered Garments spring summer collection. For this season designer Daiki Suzuki was inspired by the flamboyant style of Senegalese artist Issa Samb. Think vibrant and colourful patterns, on linen and lightweight fabrics. All cut and sewn in the Garment district of New York.
The Atlantic Parka takes its roots from the California outdoor scene of the 1960s. An exciting period of time when innovations in lightweight fabrics and water-resistant technology were born. The Californian outdoors movement, itself became a popular fashion staple in Japan from the 1970s on. Daiki Suzuki has drawn on these themes and then updated the jacket to suit modern styles. The name itself, Atlantic gives a subtle nod to the New York home of Engineered Garments. It is available this season in a striking Islamic Tile pattern.
The Bedford Jacket and Fatigue Pant are staples in every season. Drawing inspiration from workwear and military roots. They can be worn together as a more informal suit or separately to compliment any outfit. For this season they are available in a lightweight and soft 6.5-ounce natural cotton. Shown here with the Engineered Garments x Paraboot Michael in Tan.
Last but not least we have the FA Pant, inspired by the French Army Pants of the Indochina wars. It's crafted from a 6.5-ounce flat twill. It's also the first time we can remember Engineered Garments using a camo print.
The C-1 Vest takes its name from the US Air Force C-1 Survival Vest. A vital piece of equipment was issued to pilots so that they could store rations, medicine, and ammunition. Daiki Suzuki has blended the vest's military influences by dressing them in smart-looking dark navy feather twill. A lightweight and hard-wearing fabric. Shown here with the Engineered Garments x Paraboot Michael in Noir.
