The first release of items for Spring 2023 are now available online.
Transitioning out of winter into spring, the assortment lays the ground for focal elements to follow. A muted yet dynamic palette of blacks and greys are tinged in hues of purple and khaki, with rich textures that are further accentuated by various wash and natural dye treatments. Abstract motifs give way to grounded clarity, with designs exhibiting reduced exteriors and fortified interiors.
blackmerle 221 hooded jacket detail
A standout piece of outerwear from the season, the hooded jacket features a dry yet lustrous raw silk linen body for a look that is at once rugged and refined. EXCELLA® zips and PERMEX® snap hardware round off the item for an elevated finish.
blackmerle 221 field shirt soot detail
Garment dyed with soot, the first iteration of the field shirt is seen here in an airy and breathable cotton silk cloth. Irregularities in the wrinkle-treated fabric are brought to life through an additional overdye procedure, resulting in a deep tonality that will age and gain character over time.
blackmerle 221 rider pants detail
rider pants are cut from a custom developed fabric made in Shizuoka, Japan. Characterized by vertical slub streaks throughout, four different yarns of varying color, thickness, and texture are interwoven for a dynamic, uneven structure. A final stonewash treatment highlights natural irregularities and lends the item an experienced look.
blackmerle 221 inner tee detail
At last is the inner tee, a lightweight base layer with a slim cut and a scooped neck. Lenzing MicroModal® and silk fibers are combined for incredible softness, breathabilty, and an effortless sense of drape. These characteristics are offset by raw edge finishing throughout, most notably at an inverted seam that runs down its center back. Treated with a final wash, the entire garment is slightly twisted upon its vertical axis for a discreet, off-beat finish.
