Having unveiled this collection weeks ago in Paris to much adoration, Takahiro Miyashita's FW17 "ALTERNATIVE TENTACLES" explores a progressive direction - while retaining key emphasis on detailing, exaggerated fits and premium materials. Executed in a predominately black colour scheme, the range pulls from contrasting themes of military, western and new age aesthetics which fuse seamlessly in my opinion. Reminiscent of costume design seen in Takashi Miike's cult films (specifically Sukiyaki Western Django), full looks might be a stretch for some, but for the conservative SoloIst fan - expect a capsule of fleece basics, raw denim and clean outerwear pieces to tie the whole collection together.
