'Nepenthes,' a fashion label that's based both in New York City and Tokyo, released its 'Work in Progress' editorial, which consists of mostly vibrant and unconventional Japanese styles.

What's most eye-catching about the editorial is its model, who is adorned in a series of welding masks, with each picked to pair with the overall colorway of the ensemble. One of the most notable Japanese styles that the brand presents is one that varies in tones of blue. The many layered pieces make it immediately noticeable, as does the bright use of color and the mixed patterns -- such as a button-up with flowers shown on top of a pinstripe baby blue shirt.

This is all paired with plaid pants and a jacket and finished off with a blue-gray welding mask to match. Other ensembles seem to be themed by color as well, however a few mix in neutral pieces to offer more variety to the editorial.
