After the debut of its Spring/Summer 2019 collection, Japan’s up-and-coming brand YUKI HASHIMOTO returns with a lookbook for Spring/Summer 2020. Pursuing a “New Order” that respects the history and culture of fashion while designing pieces that go beyond current trends, “Y27=F2RM7LA” includes experimental, workwear-inspired items along with a variety of sleek leather bags.

T-shirts take on neon-colored stitching, black and white-colored blocks cover the knees of pants and graphics, created by photographer Kazuhito Ishikawa, are found on the backs of T-shirts. The collection subverts conventional ideas of workwear with quirky details that include ties placed on the arms of shirts instead of the fronts, half of a leather vest imposed on a trench coat and moto jacket collars fixed on tweed blazers. YUKI HASHIMOTO also worked in collaboration with KITAYAMA STUDIO, a Beijing-based leather goods brand, to release a variety of bags. Styles include fanny packs, top-handle and over-the-shoulder bags — all in white, gray, black and orange colorways.

Yuki Hashimoto is a Japanese designer who worked as a design assistant for brands such as Raf SimonsMason Margiela and Kris Van Assche. He draws inspiration from experiences that express raw and sometimes contradictory emotions; his colorful pieces take on dark tones, while mixing different materials and styles.

Ka Wa Key Spring/Summer 2020 Collection

ka-wa-key nyfwm fashionado

KA WA KEY presented SS20 collection titled "What happens in grandpa's closet stays in grandpa's closet" at the NYMD during NYFW: Men's. The collection is inspired and is interpretation of old sailor wear and clothes our grand parents would have worn when they were young.

The collection is a story of "my" grandpa who sailed the seas and experienced the world with all of his senses. This is his secrets and his future, past and present.  This is grandpa's closet.

For this romantic and artisanal collection, KA WA KEY used their signature treatments: devore for distressed sheer effect, original dreamy watercolor handprinted prints and knitted fabrics. Collection is defined by sheer, floaty and layered constructions and pastel colors.

"Wind blowing in my face, sun rays warming up my body. I hear the call of youth. I can taste it.  I am floating, the waves take me away, back to my memories."

From evening wear to menswear to the avant garde, The Face Magazine set Charlotte on fashion fire recently at their Issue 5 Release fashion show. The runway was ablaze with looks from talented emerging artists as well as established brands like Dillards and Hampton's Men's Clothier. Designers Joseph McCrae and Elias Gurrula proved they are NYFW ready with their collections and featured designer Rinat Brodach showed us how it's "done" in New York. 3BlackBird Management models rocked the runway, giving us the modern, chic and edgy woman set forth by the designers. I was thrilled to emcee the show which took place at Le Meridien Charlotte and interact with stylish guests.
