Main message: One of the winners of the 2018 Tokyo Fashion Award, Kohei Nishimura has been quietly building a fan base for his designs for over a decade, and participated in Tokyo Fashion Week for the first time this season. While he designs for both men and women, his pieces have a unisex quality. He used suiting fabrics for relaxed and casual trousers, pullovers and anoraks, while turning out easy suits from softer fabrics such as velour. Cozy, long sweaters and long scarves rounded out the offering.
The result: Nishimura proved himself to be deserving of his award with a tight, collection of easy pieces that mix and match together across colors, textures and genders.
