While there’s not a whole ton available around the internet on the Spring/Summer 2013 release for Japanese denim experts Dry Bones, via their Facebook page we were able to track down a little bit of a preview on their upcoming product drops. As my truly useless knowledge of the Japanese language helped very little, most of what follows is courtesy of either images or google translate. My apologies.
On the non-denim (such a world does exist) side of things, Dry Bones have a number of brightly printed shirts coming out, as well as a couple of scarves and pocket squares, most of which make excellent use of colourful prints (which happen to contrast quite nicely with raw denim).
However, where we’re really looking is at the unique and heritage inspired collection of denim products. A disclaimer right off the bat: if you’re not into vintage workwear this probably isn’t a post for you.
If on the other hand you are, there are some interesting overalls and very high-waisted workwear trousers in this collection for you to take a look through. The attention to detail is just ridiculous, as it’s very clear the designers behind Dry Bones have thrown an awful lot of time and effort into re-producing the best possible product.
The denim jackets are also well worth a browse, as again the attention to replicating the best possible workwear details is hard to fathom. You get the impression that you could put in an awful lot of hard days work in these, and they’d emerge looking better than you could possibly hope.
On the whole, if you’re interested in Japanese workwear and its take on vintage Americana, this is definitely a collection you’ll want to take some time to browse through in real detail, only if just to enjoy the attention and care they’ve paid.
