Japanese streetwear label WTAPS has released its FW19 lookbook showcasing the brands signature military aesthetic
The strict design ethos of Japanese streetwear label WTAPS is ‘military redefined’.
Even the name “WTAPS” (pronounced ‘double tap’) is derived from a military term meaning two shots to end it.
WTAPS was born from the Harajuku streetwear scene of the 1990s, when designer Tetsu Nishiyama or Tet to his friends, established his first brand.
WTAPS craftsmanship is also based on the work of traditional Japanese carpenters known as 'Miya-Daiku', highly skilled and resource efficient ateliers.
The FW19 lookbook doesn’t disappoint fans of military inspired designs with a collection featuring casual camouflage, crewnecks, quilted Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) cargos and utility pocketed shirts.
WTAPS’ military-inspired palette of earthy greens, tans, olives browns and black juxtaposed with some striking tones like with the W51 parka, inspired by firefighters' jackets.
Check out the military-inspired highlights from the collection in the gallery below.
WTAPS’ FW19 Collection is available now in stores and at wtaps.com.
