BED J.W. FORD Spring Summer 25 Collection

For this season, Shinpei Yamagishi is giving his ode to the everyday workers

The 2025 Spring Summer Collection by BED J.W. FORD tries to capture the everyday worker, navigating the challenges of life with determination and resilience. Inspired by the sight of a worker returning home after a long day, and designers own parents, the collection seeks to mimic the fatigue and strength that define their daily existence. Crisp shirts, worn-out and crumpled sleeves, and loosened ties tell a story of perseverance and the relentless journey toward home and rest. This collection is a tribute to those who, despite their exhaustion, find the energy to face each new day with courage and a touch of happiness.

Designer Shinpei Yamagishi goes into these themes, using them as the foundation for his Spring Summer 2025 collection. His designs vividly illustrate the imagined reality of a worker’s life, capturing the sweat and presence of individuals driven by their ambitions, desires, and responsibilities. The collection pays homage to the quiet strength found in the everyday actions of workers, celebrating their perseverance and dedication.

The imagery of office workers, construction crews, and caretakers returning home after a day’s labor is vividly portrayed. Yamagishi envisions these workers not just in their routine but in their personal moments—buying flowers or a bottle of wine for a loved one, or a candy for a child. These small acts of kindness and thoughtfulness amidst their fatigue reveal an exquisite happiness dwelling in ordinary moments. This idea of finding beauty in the mundane drives the collection’s design.

Patterns for the Spring Summer 2025 collection are defined by the brand’s signature shapes, featuring shrunken sleeves fastened with straps, natural hems, and supple shirts. Yamagishi enhances these designs with thematic details such as bells signaling the end of a workday, elliptical textiles sparking intuitive responses, and belts with heavy buckles.
