Kolor‘s Junichi Abe is one of those designers that never pays attention to trends, instead he emphasizes on details and constructions that continue to push the boundaries of contemporary menswear. His 2017 spring/summer collection is a lesson in balancing progression and tradition, adding subtle updates to classic men’s tailoring. We see blazers with adjustable side belts, jackets with ruched sleeves, and mesh trims on shorts and tees. The silhouettes also showcase the designer’s knack for loose tailoring and it’s evident that, while still consisting of oversized outerwear pieces and textured knits, there’s still a sense of easiness to the styles in relation to the warmer season. As for prints, plaid is delivered with yellow tones to add a subtle pop of color. We also see ornate graphics and flashes of pink. Furthermore, we get a subtle hint of romanticism in the collection, possibly inspired by the manners of a well-traveled man. This can be seen in the florals, embroidery, and the collection of sandals worn.
