For Spring Summer 2016, EVISU derives inspiration from time travel as it jets to the future and borrows from the past.
The new collections: EVISU Clan, pays a tribute to EVISU’s Japanese heritage through samurai-influenced silhouettes, sporty shapes, and bold graphics; and Future Fusion, a range of digitally inspired looks that play with distortion, colours, and innovative fabrics. The classic EVISU spirit pervades the season as quality and craftsmanship is once again cleverly juxtaposed with a sense of humour and an irreverent, carefree attitude.
Founded in 1991 and originating from Osaka, Japan, EVISU is named after the Japanese god of prosperity Ebisu, a brand legacy which is shown through the signature ‘Godhead’ patch sewn onto the garment. The heritage brand is known for its high-quality selvedge denim, only using authentic materials and original methods to create their denim garments; a nod to the way denim workwear was originally constructed.
- EVISU Clan
The EVISU Clan collection goes neo-samurai this season featuring new, oversized shapes as seen on the loose-cut hoodie jacket, as well as a selection of wide-leg pants and loose-cut joggers. Bold graphics, prints, and fonts make a powerful style statement as they are presented on both classic and new silhouettes.
- Future Fusion
Future Fusion draws its inspiration from traditional Japan, referencing the revered samurai and the martial art form of kendo. Long line silhouettes, voluminous shapes, and functional sportswear dominate the collection, while unique detailing and innovative fabric treatments add a modern touch to individual pieces.
