Two-piece season is upon us, and we’ve put together four looks to inspire you, from a focus on comfort to some real head-turners. The first two fits are provided by two Japanese brands that are renowned for their attention to detail, SASQUATCHFABIX and Needles. The Kashin Dyes shirt and shorts combination from SASQUATCHFABIX is made from a light and breathable rayon material, with a relaxed fit and watercolour style graphic featuring playful characters and bursts of red, yellow and blue hues, complimenting the off-white finish of the garments that lend this look to a variety of events and occasions. The Zipped Parka and W.U. shorts crafted by Nepenthes brand Needles have a more technical aesthetic, fusing a textured motif with embroidered linework with an ultra-lightweight polyester construction. The top in this duo is perfect as a light Summer jacket, with a full zip fastening, adjustable waist and hood.
Next up, UK-based military-wear enthusiasts and 90’s comeback kids Maharishi are seen next to kings of Japanese denim and casualwear, Edwin. The Maharishi Oversized shirt and Long Track Shorts showcase a patchwork aesthetic with tonal blues throughout, with a premium chambray cotton construction and long taped led straps for added impact. The Edwin TERAHERTZ has a beautifully textured crepe cotton construction decorated with a print inspired by the Orion Nebula, making it an instant hit for festivals and boat parties, with a Cuban-style collar and medium-length leg. Pair with Wallabees or Birkenstocks for an al fresco dining look.
Climbing and outdoors brand Gramicci is seen with skateboarding and workwear legends Dickies for our next two looks, proving that matching ensembles can also be incredibly functional. The Gramicci Nylon Camp Shirt is water and wind-resistant to cope with the ever-changing weather, with ventilation to the back to keep you comfortable when the sun eventually returns, whilst the Shell Gear Shorts boast a built-in belt, dual side pockets, oversized climbing pockets, a quick-drying taffeta construction and a plastic D-ring for carabiners and other clip-on accessories. The Dickies Silver Firs shirt and short combo have the same durable cotton twill in their skate-ready garms, with a loud animal print making it versatile enough for the skatepark or a house party.
The final two outfits focus on comfort and cosiness, with Adidas’ oversized core range and South Korea’s streetwear fast-risers, Frizmworks. Both combos have an easy-to-style neutral colourway, with a relaxed fit and a timeless silhouette. A key feature of the Frizmworks String Crop Sweatshirt is its double tucked sleeve detail, giving a unique look to an everyday crewneck.
