A mainstay in the Japanese streetwear set, Tetsu 'Tet' Nishiyama's WTAPS has remained a global pillar of contemporary menswear for nearly 25 years. Renowned for their distinctive approach to military apparel, the Shibuya-based label interject this timeless style with a modern attitude to offer an esoteric and rugged sensibility, primed and ready to navigate the concrete jungle.

Presenting their SS19 collection, WTAPS showcase their signature stylistic approach, detailing an amalgam of influences plucked from a variety of alternate sources. Pulling from Ivy League looks and sportswear styles, Tet's label continues to carry out their approach with military precision. Defined by a palette of olive-green, black and khaki, this street-ready interpretation of traditional military pieces infuses a vintage look with a cutting-edge frame of reference.

Celebrating the distinctiveness of military apparel, WTAPS confidently define the streetwear uniform. Featuring collection regulars like the 'Buds' shirt and the jungle hat, pullover anoraks, track jackets, smocks and metallic tote bags further outline the brand's unique outlook. With one foot firmly in the past, WTAPS' point of view resituates functionality under the guise of aesthetics, championing practicality and drawing inspiration from all that recalibrates everyday life.

Complete with a smattering of oversized branding, printed co-ordinates pinpoint the brand’s headquarters in Tokyo, ensuring that their Japanese identity shines through their international system of influences. A visually arresting offering from WTAPS, the battle-hardened brand continue to display an affinity for all things military.  

The WTAPS SS19 collection is available online now at END.
