Black and Blue: Komakino FW12

Rubber riot gear: not effective against riots, very effective otherwise. This season Komakino has remade police vests in rubber and wool. The collection is a streamlined, structural look at some of designer Federico Capalbo's favorite shapes: bomber jackets, slim-cut jeans, and hoodies—playing with Komakino's anarchic 80s attitude but with a new emphasis on color. Blocks of petrol blue cut across pants and button-downs, which, if you wear them together, create a cool where-does-one-end-and-the-other-begin optical illusion. A special shout-out also to the tailored trench coat. A five-button front and a blue back make it an elegant, well-adjusted version of the kind of coat your wear skulking in Victorian alleyways or computer hacking in your bedroom.
