HUG links up with United Arrows & Sons for a new Fall 2017 collaboration, dubbed the “Downhill” collection.
The drop consists of military-influenced workwear pieces designed by UAS director Motofumi “Poggy” Kogi and Nexus VII’s Tomohiro Konno. Taking cues from tactical garments and 1990s skate culture trends, the collection adopts a street-inspired color palette across an array of outerwear, tops, bottoms, and hats.
Highlights include an MA-1 flight jacket, featuring a Union Jack print along the sleeve panels; and the Military Taylored Jacket & Pant featuring a repurposed US armed forces T-pattern camouflage.
Pieces also carry a “DIRTBAG CREW FROM SKIDROKYO” slogan, which pays homage to HUF’s roots across, while a collaborative edition of the Dylan Slip-On shoe, constructed with British Millerain fabric, completes the collection.
The HUF x United Arrows & Sons capsule is available now at select HUF flagship stores, their online store, and at United Arrows & Sons’ newly launched concept store in Harajuku, UNITEDARROWSONE.
