Camoshita SS18 Collection - Pitti Uomo 92 Preview
Entering Camoshita’s exquisite booth at Pitti has now become one of the most anticipated experiences on the fashion calendar - especially if the master himself is there to guide you through his latest creations. If memory serves me right, I got immediately hooked on Camoshita’s collections ever since I attended my second edition of Pitti back in 2010: driven by my love for Japanese labels and United Arrows’s amazing work, visiting the stand seemed only natural.
The inherent beauty of Camoshita’s pieces, besides the uniquely unexpected color palettes, luxurious materials and sturdy construction, is the timeless elegance they portray, undoubtedly the result of its founder’s extensive know-how of menswear history. The numerous influences that propel Yasuto Kamoshita to create his collections, incorporate several periods and historical movements of menswear, spread across continents and generations - from Americana to Ivy League, British tailoring and a very personal interpretation of the classics healthily biased by his Japanese sensitivity.
For SS18, Camoshita plays with bolder shades than usual, with striking regal blues and neon pink merging with the trademark hues of brown, yellow, green, burgundy and slate grey. The result is a sophisticated approach to men’s elegance, mixing tailored elements with casual ones to portray a very particular vision of contemporary male elegance, one that is seamlessly embodied by Kamoshita on every attire.
