A video of an accordionist performing on the streets of Tokyo’s bustling Shibuya district accompanied Mihara Yasuhiro’s spring runway show. While the style of the music didn’t directly translate to the clothes, the spirit of Tokyo’s eclectic street fashion did permeate the Miharayasuhiro collection. There were plenty of possibilities that stylish, clothing-obsessed Japanese guys — and the odd gal or two — could incorporate into their wardrobes for a strut around town.
Yasuhiro channeled his efforts into jackets, denim and knitwear, and like so many other Japanese designers revisiting classic streetwear pieces, he put an emphasis on details. He employed trompe-l’oeil effects on the pockets of a shirt and the buttons and buckle trimming of a leather jacket. There were also some good-looking variations of khaki parkas and fishnet-style knitwear with a grungy vibe. Carrot-shaped jeans — in plain and distressed varieties — were not as flattering. Yasuhiro also tossed a few women’s pieces into the mix, with highlights being a frayed denim jacket and skirt combo and cropped satin jackets paired with wide-leg trousers.
