The weather has cooled down recently. And for some countries, the first snowfall has also been ushered in.
And shoten seemingly fits the right theme for this time of the year. Apart from sunny Singapore, China and Japan are the markets that are season sensitive and where we have to pay particular attention to when designing for their weather. For the next coming months, lets look at how to wear, keep warm and be stylish in winter? Let's see how to go about it from the single products and collections that we have selected :)
In winter, if you are looking for a fabric that has a distinctive style and warmth, it must be corduroy.
Since there is denim on denim, why don't we give a try to corduroy on corduroy? Sure enough, such combinations could bring on double of that style factor required, corduroy jacket + corduroy wide-leg pants, both with patchworks, no gender restrictions in design and cut, men and women bring on their own unique styles.
The corduroy fabric is durable and doesn’t get dirty easily. It remains fresh during the journey or after a long day. The unique feature of the corduroy set is that it is made of two different corduroy fabrics in collage, with subtle differences other than the color to show it's details.
The most exciting part of the pants is the straight cut, cuffed length design that allows both maturity and casualness. Who wouldn't want to live more comfortably as they age? The four front and back pockets together with the color blocks make the pants functional, comfortable, easy to wear and unique in style. There are two colorways for two different set feelings.
As much as we love the ageing in denim fabric, corduroy has the same characteristic, it will add an old and retro texture it has been worn for some time.
