While we’ve hailed AOGIRI as the Philippine brand that’s giving the techwear hype an extended run, we have to admit that the appeal (and the comfort of wearing all-black neoprene) is owned by a niche market. It’s not about hype; techwear just isn’t for everyone.
But for those who do, you’re in for a treat. If you’re not sold on the overall sleek look, you might dig the technical details surrounding each piece. With utility in mind, each item from the collection—A modified harrington jacket, a militarized halfzip, a pair of neoprene gloves, cropped pants, and a pair of short-pants composed of baggy shorts knee-long and neoprene leggings—is meticulously designed. And the pockets—they are a lot.
The items are available for pre-order tomorrow, January 3. Take a look at the look book below, featuring Rjay Ty and Aika Yamaguchi:
