AW18 Runway Recap

Having just previewed their AW18 collections last night at Pitti Uomo to much adoration, Jun Takahashi and Takahiro Miyashita presented a cohesive exhibition with underlying themes of order and disorder. Continuing to reference Stanley Kubrick’s work, Takahashi found a muse in 2001: A Space Odyssey, appropriating scene stills, samples from script text and most notably the infamous HAL 9000 Lens throughout the range.

Miyashita’s references were less literal, though still look to play on the concept of dystopia married to his avant-garde design elements with a strong utilitarian aesthetic an anchor. Face masks, quilted coats, houndstooth and rubber are used heavily for an overall compelling visual story. Browse stills from the show above and look for a full video of the presentation to release on their respective sites soon.
