Engineered Garments looks back to its roots for Fall/Winter 2018, revealing a seasonal lookbook shot by regular contributor Atsushi Nishijima aka JIMA. Half of the lookbook is dedicated to two colours: black and red. Inspired by the creativity and passion associated with black and red in works from Mark Rothko, Barbara Kruger, Russian Socialism, Workers, Revolutions, Iron Maiden, Talking Heads Remain in Light, Air Jordan, Stendhal to name a few, this part of the collection also see’s the continuation of EG’s 15 year relationship with storied woolen mill Woolrich. Using their buffalo plaid as a starting point, EG enlarged the check pattern to create something thoroughly new and abstract.
The second half is in classic EG form, dominated by grey, olive, and khaki colours. Materials come first: Grey Homespun Wool, Flannel Cottons, Brown Duck Canvas, Corduroy, and a new favorite, Double Cloth Cotton Sateen. The lookbook also gives a glimpse at some collaborative items, with footwear in conjunction with Trickers, Danner, Gola, and penny loafer icon Bass alongside a jacket and cape by Barbour.
