「斉藤上太郎コレクション」JOTARO SAITO 2018 A/W

On Wednesday I went to see the new collection of kimono designer JOTARO SAITO at the Tokyo Fashion Week. 水曜日(2018年3月21日)に、東京ファッションウィークにて、着物デザイナーのJOTARO SAITO(斉藤上太郎)さんの新作発表を訪問しました。 Although the cherry blossoms started blooming and we had 22°C a couple of days back, on the day of the collection we had snow and heavy rain at only 2°C!! What are the chances? Haha! So instead of a silk kimono I had to go with something washable - how handy that I have a jersey kimono by JOTARO SAITO himself....

Fashion Week Tokyo SS16 – h.NAOTO & YOSHIKIMONO

h.NAOTO The final day of Fashion Week I went to see the show of h.NAOTO in a warehouse like location in Chiba. Starting off with beautiful renaissance like goth dresses h.NAOTO tapped right into what one would expect. I was actually more surprised to see many ready to be worn simple print shirts and simple coats to be presented. This SS16 has Naoto experimenting with print graphics (the tights were just wonderful!) and military style. Also he put more detail on accessories...

Fashion Week Tokyo SS16 – Yuma Koshino & Onitsuka Tiger x Andrea Pompilio

Next up at the Tokyo Fashion Week for me were the shows of Yuma Koshino and Onitsuka Tiger x Andrea Pompilio. YUMA KOSHINO Last fashion week I was also invited to see her collection - so it was great to see the this seasons designs as well. Yuma Koshino impressed as always with fine details, great cuts and exquisite fabrics. Although this was the Spring/Summer 2016 collection, I was surprised by the rather dark color palette and fabrics of the first third...
