The second drop from White Mountaineering’s ‘Dune Rover’ SS12 collection has arrived here at End, with Yosuke Aizawa continuing to produce exceptional, highly original pieces that build upon the label’s ethos of ‘design, utility, technology and function’.
With flashes of influence from Aizawa’s former mentor, Junya Watanabe, the Japanese designer melds together form and function with consummate ease, harnessing traditional fabrics such as 6oz denim and sheep skin leather, utilising these luxury fabrics as a the backbone to garments with high technical specification. Revolutionary techniques and processes are used during the construction of every piece in this collection, with innovative materials such as durable rip-stop nylon and moisture wicking Pertex adding a heavy dose of functionality to Yosuke’s considered silhouettes.
Aside from the main bulk of the collection are a selection of essential, accessible premium cotton tees as well a collaborative tote bag with Tokyo luggage-heavyweights Porter. All designed and manufactured in Japan, these pieces demonstrate the fabled quality and craftsmanship of the brand, subtly showcasing the inspiration behind the collection with bold prints featuring on both the tees and bag.
