Fashion brand Maison Kitsuné stared guest designer series, beginning with Paris-trained Marcus Clayton. Maison Kitsuné and Marcus Clayton presented the Spring Summer 2021 collection, inspired by the similarities between Tokyo and Paris such as attitude, love of beautiful things, and the two cities’ light. Marcus reinterpreted brand’s codes, fusing styles of Tokyo and Parisian youth.
Fashion photographer Arnaud Lajeunie captured the SS21 lookbook, with styling from Sarah Richardson. In charge of beauty were hair stylist Christian Eberhard, and makeup artist Christine Corbel. Casting direction by Angus Munro. Stars of the session are Daniela Kocianova, David Prince and Xu Meen.
“Envision the fantasies of French weekends (striped rugby polo shirts, classic trench coats, sailor tops, cotton poplins, unisex maxi shirts) alongside distinctive Japanese street fashion (workwear cottons, waxed gabardines, silk Habotai bandanas). We see the silhouettes advancing in the streets of Tokyo with a Parisian nonchalance or vice versa.
Authentic shades of khaki, beige, and camel are enhanced by pastel sky blue, pink or off-white notes. The headwear accessories underline the strength of the blended urban silhouettes of this collection. A tribute to those who love travel, to cities found on postcards, to selfies taken at the Café Kitsuné nestled in the Palais Royal Gardens, to neighborhood jaunts, to lightness, spontaneity, curiosity, and laughter.” – from Maison Kitsuné.
