Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane Co “MF® SURPLUS”
mfsc Fall 2017
Made in Japan
If you have been following our Mister Freedom® mad scientist fashion journey for some time, you are familiar with mfsc (=Mister Freedom® x Sugar Cane Co) capsule collections, most of them spreading over two seasons (Fall/Winter & Spring/Summer). Those collections are freely inspired by historical and cultural events, with garments designed with fictitious-yet-plausible characters in mind. We have tapped into a few eclectic topics so far, the Vietnam War, the Old American West, the world of 1970’s sailing, 1900’s French gangsters, the Mexican Revolution, motorcycle riding, Gypsy Jazz…. Never a dull moment.
During Spring 2013, we thought of adding a new concept called “The Sportsman”, an on-going non-trend-based catalog of made-in-USA goods, offering a Mister Freedom® take on time-tested classics. Style influences and references for “The Sportsman” were to be drawn from the same mixed-bag of old photos, vintage silhouettes, Sunny California, 1940’s-70’s movies, souvenirs, record covers, dusty Army-Navy stores, and the magical vault of vintage clothing that has always inspired us.
For Fall 2017, we are introducing “MF® SURPLUS”, the made-in-Japan companion to “The Sportsman”. Same concept, no replicas, just a twist à-la MF® on somewhat random timeless garments, with production made in Japan. We will also revisit some old beloved pieces from previous mfsc collections, giving them a new treatment without reshaping the wheel. Our “Surplus” line-up will maximize on the expertise and excellence of Toyo Enterprises’ homeland-manufacturing, allowing for intricate garment construction and challenging cut/sew operations.
Here is a preview of what’s been cooked-up for Fall 2017, and on its imminent way from Japan. Actually, thanks to rocket ship technology, the limited edition Apollo ’69 Sukajan has already landed at MF® HQ!
The full MF® SURPLUS line-up will soon be available from www.misterfreedom.com, our Los Angeles brick & mortar store, and fine retailers around the World.
