Hirofumi Kiyonaga’s SOPHNET. will be greeting the new year with a capsule collaborative collection create hand in hand with New York City born and bred, Steven Alan. The matrimony of simplicity a la styles of two cities resulted in a joyous take on casual basics. The 2009 sartorial favorite, plaid button downs, have taken it’s very own SOPHNET. and Steven Alan twist in patch works of multi-plaid. The concept may sound slightly messy, but the duo picked out subtle plaids with delicate lines and subtle colors to create the right balance of vibrancy and class without over stepping the boundaries into garish. The other plaid shirt is a mix of what appears like chambray and blue/red plaid, taking two classic American fabric prints into one shirt. The other part of the collaborative collection due to release day after New Year’s is a duo of puffer down vests in black and blue colorways, lined with plaid as well. Seems like the American outdoor work wear is here to stay for the next season as well, so pair these with your cuffed fitted pants to take great outdoors to the streets. Find these at all SOPHNET. retailers, including honeyee.
Release Date: January 2nd (Saturday)
