PARIS, Jan 25, 2010 / FW/ — Tatsuro Horikawa, the designer behind Julius believes that “a collection is created when different elements are accumulated to such a point that they form into one exceptional vision or idea.”


Horikawa who had publicly admitted that black is the base of his creative palette once chose a very narrow color spectrum for Fall 2010 of black and white with just one jacket in terra cotta, the only item in the collection that is not black or white.

Interestingly enough, the whole collection is seemingly inspired by Japanese anime, and the models are in cosplay. Snug fitting black leather jackets are complemented with white twisted shirts and oversized pullovers. Pants can be slim or baggy enough to be samurai trousers.

Julius is still in cult territory but these looks can easily blend in a young man’s wardrobe.
