CUNE S/S 2013 - Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo Collection
Eventhough the designer Hironori Yasuda, named the theme of his S/S show - 気持ち悪い (kimochi waruii) which translates into - “feeling sick/unwell”, the collection itself made exactly the opposite impression! It was youthful, colourful and vibrant. There was a wide variety of prints, including plastic containers, bread loafs, kiwis and of course the brands staple - cute little rabit. I particularly liked the men’s sandals and the printed backpack! The silhouette of the runway pieces reminded me of Prada, so the best way to describe this collection would be - “When Miuccia met Pharrell”! Excellent job, Yasuda San!
AND TO THINK, THAT SOMEWHERE IN TOKYO/JAPAN, THERE ARE QUITE POSSIBLY A FEW LUCKY CHILDREN WHO GET TO CALL THIS DUDE “GRANDPA”. I MEAN SERIOUSLY, CAN YOU IMAGINE THE HEAD START YOU’D HAVE IN LIFE HAVING THIS DUDE PLAY THAT ROLE FOR YOU? FUCK. IT’S LIKE THE FAMILY TREE EQUIVALENT OF HAVING A TRAMPOLINE IN YOUR BACKYARD.
