ALMOSTBLACK The Menswear Designer Brand

Menswear Designer Brand

ALMOSTBLACK identifies itself as a Post Japonism brand. Its design style integrates with the essence of traditional Japanese aesthetics, creating menswear with strong punk and street style. Founded by designers Shunta Nakajima and Masaki Kawase, the brand has been active in the fashion circle since 2015, providing space for the two designers to create classic works. The S/S 2020 series, with the theme of PLAY FORM, is inspired by Isamu Noguchi’s sculpture which has a technique of first drawing grid paper on curved parts, then carving stones into the shapes of the parts, and finally combining them together. This series includes printing patterns, embroidered jackets and functional clothing.

Ready-to-wear of this season is all in the loose silhouette, and combined with ingenious arc structures and eye-catching details to enrich the beauty of clothing structure, and to display the inspiration and creativity of designers. Tonal design or color-blocked design in placement could add an individual feel.

Deconstruction

Large-scale abstract printing is the featured pattern in S/S 2020. Black and white tones are dominant, while small-scale abstract patterns are decorated by a few golden, red and bright blue decorations, adding a unique quality sense and visual enjoyment to the brand’s menswear.

Abstract Patterns

The brand still keeps the street punk style. Metal rivets, round buttons and zipper are added to styles. Metal and black materials make a contrast to show the uniqueness and provide more space for creativity, displaying the balanced and harmonious beauty of design.

Outerwear with Metal Decorations

Black and white are the most classic tones. Designers interpret the diversification of shirts through the layered design on sleeves, ruffles on sleeves, double-colored neckline, bright-colored topstitch in the back and the segmentation of plackets, adding a unique individuality to the black and white shirts.

Simple Black and White Shirts

ALMOSTBLACK applies more diversified designs to trousers for S/S 2020. The one-piece trousers, functional trousers and tampered trousers are combined with tabs, pleats and zippers to provide space for men to show individuality and express selves.
