Japanese fashion label FDMTL introduces its latest collection for the Spring/Summer 2019 season and it is full of experimental goods. The structural designs explore a variety of denim construction, spotlighting patchwork accents with the assistance of Japanese artisans.

The layering silhouettes incorporate materials such as indigo mesh with stitched accents. The range of pieces broadens out from militaristic outerwear shapes to lightweight designs as well. The warmer seasons welcome trucker jackets, chore coats, jeans, shirts, and coach jackets as well. Some details include classic boto, which upcycled patchwork and Sashiko stitching, which feature rows of organized and dense stitches. Some pieces boast a light vintage wash with additional details including dry cotton to suit the warmer seasons this year, offering alternatives from denim.
