Yaay for Yasuhiro...
I don’t really know what is going on with me right now, I’m strangely finding menswear collections more interesting that womenswear. Maybe because everything is so fraught right now, they are a stronger and safer. option. I cant relate to whimsical, frilly things. I need protection.
Whatever the reason just enjoy the SS20 collection from Maison Mihara Yasuhiro.
He explored themes of ‘underground’ culture and the irreverent ‘individual’ in the Spring/Summer 2020 collection showcased last week at Men’s Paris Fashion Week.
In this collection, Maison Mihara Yasuhiro reevaluated the 1990s, a time when the ‘underground’ was thriving, while proposing a dynamic new take on today’s underground culture. Everything is not as it seems in this collection: designs reveal garments that are deceptive at a first glance, with the inside-out proposition breaking conventional rules of classic tailoring, and can be seen subverting shapes of MA-1 jackets and outerwear.
Or it could simply be that we are all having a 90’s grunge moment. You can’t argue with these deconstructed shorts…
The collection also has a distinct European perspective, with military inspired motifs recurring throughout. Following on from last season, designs again feature the fusion of two different garments, while a darkly stylish attitude remains a key criteria for the Mihara Yasuhiro man.
The collection also featured collaboration items with record store "Discunion (disc union)" a hub for independent music in Japan.
Now put the sequins back in the box and pass me some more camo.
