The Yoshio Kubo Fall/Winter 2016 collection recently graced the stage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo and consisted of eccentric menswear pieces that were inspired by nomadic and indigenous garb.

In addition to its handmade wool vests, capes and coats, this collection also consists of tapestry-themed sweaters that are paired with winter-ready outerwear staples. Some other standouts from this Yoshio Kubo range include paint-splattered pieces that are inspired by utilitarian workwear.

This eccentric menswear collection promotes handmade construction techniques that are inspired by historical clothing. Drawing inspiration from the indigenous people of North and South America, Yoshio Kubo pairs nomadic influences with modern menswear silhouettes. The label's latest offering is a youthful collection that blends together modern and rustic elements in a seamless way.
