Designer Kunihiko Morinaga presented ANREALAGE Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection, that explores the upside-down world we live in now in the Covid-19 era, with a fashion film directed by film maker Tomoyuki Kujirai, on March 8th, as part of the ongoing digital Paris Fashion Week. The collection blurs the line between the usual and unusual and envisions the world where the sky becomes the ground, and the ground becomes the sky – the digital life has no top or bottom, nor gravity or mass, and everything floats upwards.
“Buttons and hardware slide to the top of a classic trench with a raised collar, confetti-like concentrations of dots, checks and houndstooth motifs accumulate around the shoulders of coats with cocoon forms, and patterned blocks collide around the collars of argyle and Fair Isle knits or cable-knit sweaters and cardigans. Even the House’s name tag is sewn upside-down with the care instructions collapsing at the bottom of the label. With construction details also falling or hanging on the surface of garments as if drawn by this new force, wonky patch pockets and buttons tumble haphazardly across denim and down jackets, with among other playful spins on the gravity theme a colorful apple tree jacquard sweater depicting fruit falling toward the sky.” – from ANREALAGE
