One of our eight rising brands to watch at Tokyo Fashion Week, AVALONE presented a Fall/Winter 2016 collection that referenced ’90s death metal bands as its main inspiration. Models hit the Tokyo runway in designer Susumu Miura’s latest riffs on progressive sportswear and contemporary streetwear — appropriately dark and edgy silhouettes that paired monochromatic color schemes with luxurious materials, bold proportions and graphic accents. Among the standout pieces were oversized bomber jackets and hoodies, slouchy trousers and chunky knits, all of which resulted in an ominous, but surprisingly wearable range of garments. Take a look at AVALONE’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection here.
