Yoshio Kubo, like many Tokyo-based menswear designers this season, took inspiration from sports, but he infused the collection with his signature street-ready style. Models, some sporting clown makeup, mustaches curled at the edges or exaggerated pompadour hairstyles, walked a runway set up on an athletics track as DJs spun tracks with lots of thumping bass. Kubo mixed elements of high and low, placing paisley and scarf prints on slim polo shirts and wool jackets; trimming neon yellow shorts in delicate lace; and constructing tracksuit jackets from a translucent chiffon-like fabric.
