A clever and carefully constructed collection that although nostalgic in its philosophy was inherently modern and relevant.
The 50's Beatnik generation inspired Miharayasuhiro's winter 2010 collection. Writer Alan Ginsberg's alternative and hedonistic lifestyle focused on the individual and Mihara's collection reflected this bohemian spirit. Long shirts, distressed knits and deconstructed jackets communicated a worn in, comfortable wardrobe, while stripes and checks nodded to the Beatniks. Blazers and jumpers were knitted in a combination of horse leather and wool, and jackets and coats were reconstructed in beautifully textured fabrics. Printed denim was actually wool and sheepskin was treated and dyed to appear aged. The collection suited the current trend for mixing and mis-matching fabrics and textures and Mihara's unique approach to fabric development gives his clothes a rare quality. A clever and carefully constructed collection that although nostalgic in its philosophy was inherently modern and relevant. A strong and individual vision from Mihara.
