H & M's Spring/Summer 2016 streetwear catalog draws inspiration from Japanese fashion and merges traditional and modern details. The collection focuses on loose and boxy fits that will ensure the wearer stays cool in the summer heat. The clothing is mostly showcased in a palette of earth tones, which along with the loose silhouettes, mirror not only the current aesthetic of Japanese streetwear, but also the styling of traditional Japanese clothing.
This inspiration stretches beyond just the fit of the clothing, as the collection features a beautiful indigo kimono jacket -- a modern take on the classic Japanese garment. This H & M men's streetwear catalog highlights the fast fashion retailer's latest product range and promises to provide buyers with a cost-effective alternative to premium-priced Japanese streetwear.
