London-based Tourne de Transmission and River Island bring a Japanese aesthetic to the high street.
A new collaborative project is revealed as two fashion labels take on a new collection, visibly inspired by old and new Japanese culture.
The collection is the result of River Island’s latest Design Forum collaboration with Tourne de Transmission, a brand who’s design philosophy is based around Eastern design elements. Inspired by traditional Japanese craftsmanship and modern Tokyo street style, the collection boasts kimono silhouettes, wide leg trousers and references to the ancient Japanese patchwork technique of ‘boro’ mixed with contemporary elements such as classic jersey sweats, denim jackets and jeans.
The collection will be showcased during London Fashion Week Men’s this January via a short film which will be shown as part of the Fashion Film evening produced by the British Fashion Council.
The full Tourne de Transmission x River Island collection is available to buy online now.
