Inspired by the Japanese baseball teams of the 40’s and 50’s from her hometown Osaka, Michiko Koshino showcased her SS18 collection, which is a concoction of contemporary and historic aesthetics.
A strongly themed collection consisting of high customized orange and green Michiko Koshino socks, cropped elasticated trousers and street style influence. But what was most striking was the black inflatable hooded jacket and matching trousers that were incredible. Famed for her unconventional silhouettes, by challenging and distorting various fabrics Koshino remains at the forefront of forward-thinking fashion. Sport generated collections for the most part have always had a great turn out. With the use of wool, heavy jersey and nylon fabrics Koshino was able to turn this base-ball inspired collection into something great, which showcased a deeper understanding of the designer’s craft. Making this menswear line wearable, but so outstanding.
With a relating soundtrack of what it would be like if at an actual baseball game, Koshino put on a remarkable presentation.
