The Unknown New York Spring '16 collection prioritizes a surplus of ready to wear pieces that will be sure to kick off the upcoming season. Exclusive outerwear alongside unique detailed stitching, distressed jogger sets; slim-fit linen pieces, and a variety of bottoms represent elements of the Spring '16 collection.
Prominent to the collection is the Unknown New York Enigma Jacket. Made with genuine leather, this jacket features an asymmetrical zipper and removable open-finger gloves. Retailing for $1,100.00 USD, the slim-fit jacket also includes a standing tube collar.
Unknown New York Spring '16 also provides a series of staple pieces such as the Archetype Jacket available in dark olive. New to the collection is the nylon Static Windbreaker, retailing for $185.00 USD.
Crafted by leading manufacturers, a motivating factor for the Unknown New York line is to bridge the gap between streetwear and high fashion retailed at a moderate price. Far removed from the mundaneness of today’s culture, Unknown New York introduces bold detailing and laser sharp cutting, building off of the strong characteristics of its premier 2014 collection.
The Unknown New York SS16 Collection is available now in-stores and online.
