Last summer I had the privilege of visiting the OBSCUR showroom in Paris and see what the OBSCUR S/S12 looked like. This beautifully crafted collection featured light weight basics made of Japanese organic cotton, rustic looking Japanese linen jackets, lots of typical to OBSCUR leather goods, such as jackets with a new moldable collar and an oversize zippered bag. The designer Richard Söderberg‘s idea was to make the garments like an armor, protecting their wearer but still keep them wearable. Having tried on the garments myself, I think he succeeded spot on. OBSCUR S/S12 will become available early next year.
