...reviewed on 15 October 2014, the 3rd day of MBFWT (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo). Fashionoffice selected three images from the fashion week's media page with focus on men's streetwear style for next Spring/Summer 2015.
fig. right: The black trousers and grey sweater combination is from the collection 'Broken' by Atsushi Nakashima. The runway show of men's and women's wear was held today on 15 October. The collection appears like a reconstruction of sports and streetwear in elegant mode with artistic twist; last mentioned especially because of the prints of some of the items (which are on view on tokyo-mbfashionweek.com). Before
started his own eponymous brand in 2012, the designer worked for Jean Paul Gaultier.

fig.: below, left: The gym-like sweater suit with shorts and hoodie is from the 'A Degree Fahrenheit' SS2015 collection designed by Yu Amatsu; presented on 14 October at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo. Yu Amatsu worked in New York as pattern maker (like for Marc Jacobs) and is a two-time winner of the Gen Art International Design Competition. Amatsu plays with very common patterns of everyday clothing and modifies them in an experimental way; highlights are the sweater suits, tops, long skirts, etc. Some of the men's and women's pieces reference the people's habit of draping pullovers or shirts around their bodies.
