Designer: yusuke takahashiinspiration: the designer and his team study clothing habits. the man becomes a nomad and the possibility from now on to work at home, in a café or elsewhere… comfort, freedom and movement become essential. collection: t-shirts become jackets, blouson jackets are worn over loose trousers or light bermuda shorts. the idea of light is translated through new techniques on knitwear composed of washable threads and different colours which create a 3d effect after the first wash. tie-dye and batik push the spirit of summer, even cotton or linen are blended with polyester. to note: the pop colours, notably spotted on striped polos and sweatshirts. + lots of hand dying techniques, carried out by artisans working in the japanese ateliers. interview: firstly, when we started this collection, we discussed the future of lifestyle and the concept of shirts with the design team. so nowadays, you can wear shirts like jackets and t-shirts like shirts, so it’s a very casual age, and there will be a time soon when you can work with that, going to the office, the park, or a library and also your home is the office. the key word of the collection was the sun. so the sun has the meaning of the axis, and it reminds us of the brilliant future and i wanted to express the sunlight or prism with pop colours and shadow, with the skills of the craftsmen to make the contrast between the traditional dying technique and pop colours. music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
