Mountain Research’s output may be meticulously crafted and unfailingly chic, but designer Setsumasa Kobayashi isn’t necessarily connected to the worlds of traditional fashion or hype driven streetwear. As to be expected from a brand whose biannual collections are conceived of in a literal mountain retreat, practical functionality is always the foremost priority for Kobayashi and Mountain Research.
The Spring/Summer 2019 collection from Mountain Research adjusts the ratio of provocative, anarchist sloganeering to utilitarianism seen in their Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, as functional inspiration drawn from military, mountaineering, and hunting sources occupy center stage.
Mountain Research's Patched Shorts are modern style, with punk inspiration. That means there are still lots of patches, but none of them are representing for Doom or Nausea.
