Editor’s Notes: Polish brand Hermetic Square has delved into the nostalgia of arcade games for their FW18 drop of retro outerwear, graphic hoodies and T-shirts. The conceptualized lookbook (see below), has been framed as a sequence from Tekken, but the ’90s gaming vibe also translates to the garments with bold logotypes of fictional TV channels, neon colorways and distinctive patterns.

INSERT COIN. We are all quite familiar with this phrase. It was continuously flashing right before our eyes, as we stared at the glaring screen of the arcade machine with the luminous, eye-catching banner saying TEKKEN 3 on it. In a split second you could embody yourself into anyone, starting from a deadly Brazilian capoeira fighter, followed by an insane former Soviet scientist or a black-belt Taekwondo master. This was the place where you could prove everyone that you were worth it, where all bets were off and where many friendships got ruined. As a homage to all of the fighting arcade games that we used to cut our teeth on, we decided to embed FW18 Lookbook in the realm of a fictional fighting game HEKKEN X. Insert coin, choose your character and FIGHT!
