The Tokyo Fashion Week It was held from March 5 to 20 in the Japanese capital. Full of contrasts and with an experimental character, shows us the best of Japanese design on its catwalks.
Tokyo Fashion Week is, above all, the exhibition of a game of contrasts. Broadly speaking, Japanese design is based on the dance between shadow and light, emptiness and space, and sizes, shapes and colors. This indecisive character is an extension of the Japanese cities, where styles that go from carnival to purest minimalism walk hand in hand, from extreme volumes to straight and simple lines.
Experimental and earthy, as conservative as avant-garde, Japanese fashion is born in the streets and, by dint of repetition, he finds a way on the catwalks.
Specifically, the axis of the season is not new. The oversize, neutral and earth colors, overlap and comfort dominate the shows. The key to the magic of Japanese fashion is combination: the focus is on reinterpreting style guidelines and experimenting with new silhouettes. Some nods to Saint Laurent, hypebeast and cowboy style, meet tailoring and deconstruction. The latter is, ultimately, what made Japanese design famous in the world.
Somehow, the catwalks condense all the variants of street style that characterize the Japanese capital. It is precisely the mundaneness of his style that gives the collections richness and fantasy: it is attainable and attractive and, as always, reality is stranger than fiction. As a testament to this mix, These are the 15 looks that define Tokyo Fashion Week.
