Graphic punchiness, athletic verve and comfort came together in Junichi Abe’s strong spring Kolor collection. He took activewear staples — T-shirts, sweatshirts, jogging pants and Windbreakers — and energized them with fluorescent, surf-inspired accents and bold stripes. Consider an orange nylon mesh T-shirt worn underneath a tie-dyed raglan sleeve top in colors evoking a summery sky, or bold stripes in orange or green applied to sweatshirt-and-baggy short combos: horizontal on top and vertical for the bottoms.
The impact of the stripes, sometimes appearing as a knit bib front on boxy T-shirts, contrasted with the somber palette and bohemian touches like stonewashed denim tops or washed cotton shorts trimmed with black crochet lace. The effect was sleek, yet psychedelic.
