Undercover RTW Fall 2015

“Pain and beauty” were on Jun Takahashi’s mind for fall.

“Pain and beauty” were on Jun Takahashi’s mind for fall. Thanks to the clear plastic masks forcing every model to smile throughout the show, the suffering was heartfelt, and it infiltrated — figuratively speaking — the sartorial aesthetic.

 

The designer worked with volumes, which at times looked onerous to carry and yet proved visually interesting, especially on a perfecto, a teddy and a bomber with exaggerated bell backs. Tailoring was front and center, but with a twist, as Takahashi divulged he was on a mission to “destroy.” Cue a series of coats patchworked from shirt fronts, cardigans and trouser backs, which could have resulted in chaos but didn’t because of the designer’s handsome, color-blocked technique.

 

Then things got really weird as models paraded in coats, sweaters and skirts printed with massive 18th-century-inspired portraits by Michaël Borremans. That’s a heck of a fashion statement.
