A firm favourite here at End, Daiki Suzuki’s Engineered Garments come back time and time again with collections consisting of reinvented workwear classics. The Spring/Summer collection for 2013 is no different, with a number of innovatively executed pieces utilising a variety of heritage and contemporary technical fabrics. Infused throughout the whole collection is a real celebration of all things summer, inspired in many ways by the conditions in which Daiki designed the whole range, during one of the hottest New York summers on record.
The Ground Jacket, an EG staple, rears its head in 2013 draped in a particularly eye-catching floral print. Taking inspiration from classic Hawaiian prints but never surrendering from to function it with its detachable peaked hood, elasticated cuffs and drawstring hem. Bold printed designs have proved to play a big part in the SS13 collection, with a highlight of the collection being two new iterations of the Baker Jacket. Paying homage to heritage tailoring, a particular highlight is the Navy paisley Print version, constructed in New York’s Garment District and showcasing Daiki’s flair for prints.
The impeccable attention to detail which we have come to expect from Engineered Garments is present in every piece of this collection, be it in the SS13 version of the Windbreaker’s unique pocket design or the remarkable finishes on the Round Collar Shirt.
