Takeshi Kitazawa and Emiko Sato design for Tokyo’s grown-up cool kid: asymmetric, unisex pieces in pared-down colors and textures, but turned out in perfectly deconstructed silhouettes that still look polished. This season, they presented an offering of oversized coats and office-ready separates, with subtle athletic influences mixed in throughout.
Outerwear was a big theme for Dressedundressed this fall. Tailored, double-breasted wool overcoats and pleather trenches were mixed in with loose, quilted nylon coats and wool flannel capes. The palette consisted mainly of black, charcoal gray, white and navy, with just a few pops of red or bright blue showing up on tiny cross-body bags and extralong belts.
A slim-fitting suit showed subtle contrast with two different widths of pinstripes, while a giant blue shirt had sleeves that billowed open from the elbow down. The faintest hint of femininity came from lace skirts peeking out from under coats, but more prominent were sporty elements, such as a polo sweatshirt worn over a shirt and tie, and pants that buttoned or zipped down the legs.
The cool factor of the collection was accentuated by accessories including leather baseball caps, aviator sunglasses and even a Daft Punk-esque motorcycle helmet.
