The moment we've all been waiting for, the W'menswear Autumn Winter 18 collection has finally arrived here at PTJ+S. This season W'menswear are pulling out the wildest textiles possible like double faced herringbone denim from Okayama in Japan, and specially developed fabrics made uniquely for the brand. The most unusual is a new interpretation of Jungle and desert camouflages, done in a tightly woven Japanese nylon, and pigment dyed so that each millimeter of fabric is uniquely marbled. Very special indeed.
Another new fabric development that's coming out this season is the W'menswear All-Weather cloth in khaki green. Made in Scotland by Ponytail Pals Halley Stevensons, the dry finish rain cloth is made to repel water while beautifully marbling with age, wear and washing too - a similar thought process behind the nylon camouflage.
Shot in Kathmandu by our very own editor-at-large Eric Kvatek, the look book was a fun adventure amongst friends, new and old. It brings me much pleasure to introduce the new collection to browse. I invite you to tap images for further details on each garment.
