Kolor presents a travel inspired collection for Spring/Summer 17.
This collection is filled with patterns and textures as designer Junichi Abe incorporates inspiration from travel and culture into his designs, although he isn’t sure which, exactly. He comments “Sorry, I don’t know,” to being asked at the show which ethnicity he is reflecting. We do know, however, that there are kimono style pieces, coin medallions, transparent knits, crocodile textured jackets and American penny loafers.
“New and old, stiff and soft, natural and technical. If it’s right, I use it. It’s the mix that’s exciting.” Abe announces, giving us the impression that if he likes it, it goes. Perhaps this is what makes the collection so interesting; the uncertainty of concept and the lack of a deeper meaning.
