Michiko Koshino presented her Autumn Winter 2018 collection during the ongoing London Fashion Week Men’s. Using the color palette of purple, wine, blue, black and white, the designer created the contemporary uniforms inspired by 1800’s photo of Japanese horse-drawn delivery cart.
After finding a photograph dating back to the 1800’s of a Japanese horse-drawn delivery cart, Michiko sourced inspiration from the humble courier, creating a workforce uniform of her own. A dynamic and assertive collection, the pieces are here to be seen – with a rich colour palette and branded embroidery present throughout, playful ‘customer service’ quotes on the back of garments bring humour to the charming theme. Featuring a range of textures from washed silks through to knitwear, the collection also features specific womenswear pieces. The iconic Koshino inflatable is seen in a completely new light, having been encased within other fabrics to conceal its usual PVC appearance. As is typical of the brand, practicality has not been compromised through the design process, with waterproof and warm sturdy textures bringing comfort and wearability to the pieces. – from Michiko Koshino
