Mihara Yasuhiro‘s original and imaginative craftsmanship is elevated to a higher plane for AW19 with a playful message of wit and whimsy.
Focusing on 1950’s Americana, the collection weaves a recurring “play” theme throughout. The jacquard shirts and scarves feature roulette tables and playing cards prints as well as coveralls and bush pants worked with rubber stamp patterns. The backs of riveted blousons are adorned with hand painted designs, all evoking a subtext of freedom.
Mihara also focuses heavily on layering garments throughout the looks, using his reconstruction technique to combine items together such as the sweaters to overcoats, trench to denim jackets and blouson to belt bags using complex patterns.
In addition, ECCO collaborated shoes feature through the collection.
