The Ashton Michael Fall/Winter 2015 catalog boast pieces that reference traditional sportswear uniforms. The label's latest range is modeled by Jimmy Q and Torian John and is captured by the lens of photographer Ricky Tompkins.
Designer Ashton Hirota is the creative force behind Ashton Michael and looks to pop culture for his main points of inspiration. His unisex range is a nod to Sporty Spice, Rocky Balboa and even sci-fi film TRON.
Drawing inspiration from athletic equipment and apparel, menswear is becoming more comfortable and functional. The fashion industry's comfort-focused shift doesn't mean that designers are ignoring their creative roots. A great example is Ashton Hirota himself, a talent that manages to make classic jersey, hoodie and short silhouettes appear new and unexpected.
