Takahiro Miyashita has long been interested in music, and this season’s collection could only be inspired by one great — David Bowie. Bowie’s spirit of reinvention was the main notion behind this collection, and is appropriate since Miyashita decided to officially rename his brand TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSkoloct.”

The Skoloct is a fictional creature invented by Shin Mirayama, a Brooklyn-based artist and friend of Miyashita. The two artists collaborated on this collection, which featured Mirayama’s Skoloct prominently. It’s an enigmatic life form from Harajuku that looks like an animated rabbit, and Miyashita took the Skoloct and reinterpreted it to fit his inspiration of “transformation,” with bandana masks allowing the model to change into the fictional character. The collection featured a section that paid homage to Bowie, and then another based around Japanese silhouettes and technical reinterpretations. Miyashita (along with Christopher Nemeth) will also be reissuing footwear by John Moore, a shoe designer from the 1980s.
