Contemporary menswear brand N.HOOLYWOOD tapped into vintage scuba gear to create the looks in its Spring 2017 collection.
Styles play with functional features, mostly dark hues and sleek structures as a result. The creation of the collection was headed by designer Daisuke Obana who is said to have been inspired by the beauty and mystery that the deep sea offers, a concept that she encapsulates in many of the styles. Models show off the scuba gear looks, wearing water shoes to further note the connection. Heavy straps adorn the tops of shirts and jackets as well, giving contrast to the material and noting the functional versatility of the clothing.
While some pieces pay tribute to the aquatic scuba gear inspiration in full with futuristic designs, others take on more neutral color palettes and traditional cuts.
