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.
Setsumasa Kobayashi's design philosophy tends to avoid flash for the sake of flash, so when it comes to a classic silhouette that works, Mountain Research won't try to reinvent the wheel. When it comes to something as simple as shorts, a water repellent/quick dry nylon fabric and zip mesh pockets are more than enough to put their own stamp on things.
