Brian Wood’s Reborn Suicide for Fall 2012

If any of your lame friends accuse New York designer Brian Wood of being lazy, call them out on it or punch ’em in the eye!

Far from resting on his laurels, Wood stays busy, “midtown scramblin” as he’s fond of saying on Twitter.

For the last several months we’ve reported on Wood’s weed homage and capsule collections released on the Left and Right coasts. This time round, we’re happy to report that Wood has released new images from his original label, Brian Wood. The collection is titled “Reborn Suicide” and it features 10 looks consisting of outerwear and woven shirts which offers functionality and a macabre sophistication.

Wood blended textures such as wax cotton, Melton wool, denim coated cotton and enzyme washed nylon on outerwear pieces; buttoned shirts with concealed front plackets; delicate fabrications like Silk Crepe De Chine and Woven Gauze are all outstanding attributes of the collection which aims to keep the wearer dry in dark palettes this fall.

Manufactured in New York City with the fabrics imported from Italy and Japan, Wood’s latest efforts in mixing materials and concepts is on par with earlier releases like African Warlord, arriving three seasons under his own moniker. The last time we saw such a vision from Wood was back in 2010 before he turned to womenswear and designed the Silvio Liu collection while building his secondary, streetwear line, B.Wood.

Key pieces in Wood’s Reborn Suicide collection for Fall/Winter 2012 include a water repellant enzyme washed nylon baseball jacket with dropped dolman sleeves and python skin (PETA Patrol!) detailing on pockets, a mid-length double-breasted waistcoat color blocked in Melton wool, waxed cotton canvas and water repellant-coated denim; and a sick as fuck water repellant poly/pu blend ninja mask jacket with quilted shoulder and elbow patch detailing, magnetic snap pockets, front flange with concealed zip chest pockets.

Winter never looked so fuckin’ dope.
