Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, Maison Kitsuné Fall/Winter 2016

206ff903c0443bdc23133aa9_329x440PARIS, France, January 22, 2016 – From the imagination of co-founders Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, Maison Kitsuné pays homage to its Japanese heritage this Fall/Winter 2016 season.

With the aesthetic and dreamscape created by Hayao Miyazaki in acclaimed, animated film The Wind Rises, the collection takes off for distant shores in 1930’s aviary fashion.

The “Love Rises” men’s collection introduces Japanese silhouettes, comfortable, cool and elegant in shades of navy blue and gray with green, which are brought to life in dashes of bright blue, mauve and red. In a combination of daring colors and motifs, patchwork furthers the palette for an exciting, juxtaposed effect.

Materials also return to native lands in organic textiles: cotton, flannel, broadcloth and velvet.

Icons of Mount Fuji and the Rising Sun recur among pop prints – in aviator or camouflage – in playful celebration of the casual, chic edge that defines the Maison Kitsuné man.

Finally classic, season-to-season styles are revisited and meticulously redone: the bomber jacket is envisioned in raw-edge felted wool; the aviator jacket adopt technical twill with a faux shearling collar; and the duffle coat goes incognito with camouflage jacquard broadcloth.
