Jun Takahashi continued to attract inspiration from tunes and cinema for his men’s use offerings.
As its title suggested, the spring 2023 selection “The Dim Facet of the Bright Facet,” unveiled in the sort of a glimpse book in the course of Paris Men’s Style 7 days, was a lover letter to the English rock band Pink Floyd.
Cover art from the band’s legendary albums, such as the dairy cow on “Atom Coronary heart Mom,” the prism on “The Dark Aspect of the Moon,” the Battersea Power Station on “Animals,” and two adult males shaking arms with a single burning on “Wish You Were being Listed here,” were repurposed with some printed in excess of an entire jacket, when some scaled to the size of a logo on T-shirts and hoodies as if they have been do-it-yourself merch by diehard admirers.
The collection also featured shirts with lyrics from tracks like “Vitamin C” and “Mother Sky” by the German experimental rock band CAN, motifs of Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, and American jazz composer Sunlight Ra: A minor clue for these in the know to identify each other.
Other standouts include things like cozy knits, hand-dealt with leather jackets, shirts with cute embroideries, and the brand’s 1st sandals with Melissa.
