Decay is definitely not a common theme for a fashion collection. “I wanted to express the idea of fading memories,” said Pas de Calais creative director Yukari Suda, who designed a fall lineup infused with a sense of subtle melancholy.
In keeping with the inspiration, Suda’s signature print was a blurry, abstract pattern of ink spots that she used on several pieces, including a long dress crafted from a special type of linen. Here everything was about Japanese simplicity combined with an urban sensibility. This translated into mannish blazers, clean shearling coats and wide-legged pants resembling skirts. The overall effect was minimal and chic.
