Maison Kitsuné AW15 is the definition of witty and wearable. The “K.I.M” collection- a “tribute to the mysterious soul and beauty of South Korea”- interprets street-ready menswear styles, such as denim, sweaters and suiting, in the most eye-catchingly playful manner. Subverting traditional autumn/winter fashion design, the collection presents a summertime aesthetic intended for cooler climes, dominated by sky blues and pastel yellows to brighten even the dullest of days. Contrasting effects rule the scheme; epitomised by the surprisingly cohesive ensemble of a plaid shirt, denim boiler suit, duffle coat, casual cap and polished Oxfords. Trigrams, inspired by the country’s flag ubiquitously form the collection’s most inventive print, alongside dazzling dogtooth and kawaii animal motifs. Allow the eye to explore beyond this immediate busyness, however, and a calculated, subtly sixties Parisian sensibility is revealed; cuts are slick and precisely tailored and fabrics are luxuriously refined, proving that style never exceeds substance when Maison Kitsuné are concerned.
