Designer Benji Peng's athletic menswear range is titled 'American Acid Capsule' and blends together retro and futuristic inspirations. In addition to referencing his youth in the suburbs, the designer also draws inspiration from the daring styles of music icons like David Bowie.

Marrying vintage and contemporary elements, Benji Peng's latest collection features athletic menswear that is both eye-catching and comfy. Its key pieces include pastel pink sweaters, electric blue separates and structured navy suits that appear thrifted and oversized in their look.

Photographer Spencer Ostrander captures the 'American Acid Capsule' catalog and works with Red Models face Ilir Shanja, who poses against a stark and understated backdrop. This advertorial's overall theme is nostalgic even though its pieces are a subtle homage to sci-fi.
