mackintosh makes further strides on the trajectory that'll raise its profile as a contemporary fashion brand, releasing another capsule collection in collab with forward japanese fashion label hyke. this s/s 2016 collection, their fourth since launching in two years ago, will see the first release of men's designs. on offer are consists three similar styles for both men and women: a single-breasted coat with a hood fuses practical rainwear with contemporary urban leisurewear. military inspired details appear on a coat with a button-up collar and epaulettes. complementing the range is a classic yet minimal single-breasted coat with narrow lapels offers. as is a tradition at mackintosh, meticulous attention has been given to fabric innovation, and this range of designs is no exception. each style in the mackintosh x hyke collection appears in one of four fabrics.
the signature mackintosh rubberized cotton is seen in a soft beige colourway, reminiscent of traditional trenchcoats. a nylon satin fabric gives an ultra-luxe sheen and comes in navy and black, the black styles lined with orange evoking an ma1 bomber. and that's not all, folks. a japanese bonded denim has the appearance of chambray. taped seams and a rubber bonded cotton construction ensure that each coat is completely waterproof. a black rubber tape appears on hems and sleeves, adding a distinct contemporary edge to each style. the mackintosh x hyke s/s 2016 collection is available at the mackintosh flagship stores in london and tokyo, but if you live elsewhere on the planet, no worries. these trophy coats can also be ordered online.
