For the Engineered Garments SS 2015 collection, travel and safari were the main inspirations. The head designer, Daiki Suzuki, drew inspiration from the 1996 film "The English Patient" and British military-influenced garments. Based on this, a concept was developed for a short film that included a mix of British LRDG (Long Range Desert Group) and an homage to 70-80's outdoor brand catalog images.
