Japanese fashion label BAL refuses to be defined by categories with its newest BAL Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The transitional pieces in the collection experiment with multitudes of styles and push creative boundaries with the expansive range it offers. The BAL Spring/Summer 2018 collection draws inspiration from the popular patterns in fashion -- such as trek-wear and loose cuts.
The non-conforming collection features classic long-sleeve shirts and loose-fitting shirts decorated with a range of patterns -- including palm leaf and leopard prints. Some standout pieces from the collection include a loose-fitting tropical wool suit, water-resistant anoraks and quilted pattern jackets. A Japanese artist Itsumi Max played a role in creating the line's 'M-51' jacket and rayon shirt, as his designs are incorporated on the garments. The BAL Spring/Summer 2018 collection will be released on BAL's online website in the upcoming months.
