Its collaborators might have changed, so have the materials and various of other things. However, the premise of uniform experiment has been a constant one since Japanese trendsetter Hiroshi Fujiwara and Hirofumi Kiyonaga, creative director of labels SOPH. and F.C.R.B., decided to create a testing platform some years ago. Then, as it is now, uniform experiment is an exploration of clothing design where trends and market rules gave way to the pursue of refinement. In other words, how can one better pre-existing designs without comprising the original ethos of the design? One of the most recent application of this ideal was with American workwear label Carhartt. By “re-engineer” the label’s popular duck canvas and familiar silhouettes, uniform experiment created the uniform experiment x Carhartt Capsule Collection.
Comprised of Hunting Jacket, Bronco Pants, and Work Vest in Brown or Navy, the collection is more than just another branding each with another label. In fact, Kiyonaga and company reworked every inch of the design. Yet, in typical Japanese fashion, you’d hard pressed find the subtle alterations in fit, details, and materials. Limited in availability, the collection is now for sale at Canadian retailer HAVEN and its online store.
