For next summer Miharayasuhiro sought inspiration from the book 'Walden, Life in the Woods,'by Henry David Thomas. The text informed the film installation that provided the backdrop and narration for the collection. An abstract video of flying birds, growing trees and a city scape gave a platform for the collection that explored the contrast been nature and the city. For the clothes, shapes were taken from the American 50s and combined with Mihara's sensitive approach to mixing different fabrications. Floral camo and landscapes were printed on long jackets and worn with relaxed shorts. A palette of green, brown and grey on waterproof ponchos continued the utility aesthetic of this beautifully considered collection. Mihara has an expert confidence in handling texture, and an original subtle approach to the use of materials. Combined with his slightly-off use of colour, Mahara has a distinct and unique aesthetic that has qualities of being old and familiar, but at the same time being inherently modern. Another sensitively realised and accomplished collection by Mihara.
