GRIND Magazine is showcasing the Wacko Maria SS 2014 collection in a gritty new editorial, set in an after-hours joint.

Even in the lackluster lighting of the dingy bar, the magnificent quality of the Japanese brand's tailored pieces is obvious. Aside from being brilliantly made, the pieces each have a idiosyncratic personality. Stripes, animal print and pin-up girls of bygone days embellish the collection, while a reinterpretation of the classic pin-stripe suit is one of the collection's stand-out features. The emerging label is similar to brands such as Fuct and WTAPS, although it has its own distinctive genetic makeup.

Overall, the collection lives up to the brand's name by being bizarre ad quirky in the best way possible.
