Los Angeles-based fashion label HOMME BOY recently unveiled the first part of its LOOSE ENDS collection entitled 'LE2.23.' The name of the series is a shortened version of "LOOSE ENDS 2/23."

The brand's aesthetic of distressed cuts and grunge looks continue to take over in this new Spring/Summer 2018 range. Designer Kyle Pak expresses that the collection was inspired by South Korean band HYUKOH's newest album entitled 23; the visuals sparked inspiration for the designer and he incorporated them into the capsule.

The curation and craft of LE2.23 is edgy and collectively blends modern streetwear with high-fashion looks. Some notable items from the series are the unique leather rider jackets and shirt jackets accented with detailed patterns and textiles. There is also a notable selection of functional vests, bold trousers and silver accessories. Some standout details from the capsule include lots of distressing, hardware, triangle rings and ball chains.
