If you’ve been following me for a while, chances are you’ve seen me share my passion for Haversack, a contemporary Japanese label headed by designer Koji Nori. While I usually resonate with Japanese brands due to their unique interpretation of historical fashion movements and styling influences, there’s just something special about Haversack.
Within its collections, the brand is able to coherently mix such distinct styles such as military, utilitarian, traditional Japanese, Preppy, Americana and tailoring, to create what they describe as “modern vintage”. This fresh approach results in extremely appealing and eclectic collections that always manage to amaze me and keep coming back for more.
Unusual silhouettes are paired with more traditional staples to create visually appealing looks, always brilliantly styled, where proportions. plays on length, volume and pattern come together brilliantly. The last look is a perfect example: slim khakis paired with a long tunic, a v-neck jumper, and plaid short jacket, creating several visual references in the same look.
