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.
The Mountain Research Phishing Shirt isn't one of the label's anarchist branded pieces, but it's definitely ready to topple the established status quo. Have you ever tried finding a button-up fishing shirt that wasn't some variety of check-plaid, earth tone, or tropical high visibility? A sleek, black, mesh interpretation says no lures, no masters.
