Yoshio Kubo is typically known for his theatrical runway shows, but the contemporary designer took a fairly lower-key route for his spring/summer collection. Holding his show three months prior to the start of Tokyo Fashion Week and staged in the city’s rugby stadium, the show was simple and minimal, mirrored by the aesthetic of the clothes.

Kubo designed sport-inspired garments such as shorts, tan tops, swearshirts and more. He also adorned pieces with bold metallic trims and gold tweed detailing. The boldest colors included a neon yellow, but the designer said of his newly-found simple aesthetic, “I think I had been doing well [at designing clothes] with a lot of prints and that were flashy, but in order to put more of myself out there I started thinking maybe I should make a different kind of clothes. So maybe people will think this collection is more simple, but I was thinking from the beginning about [incorporating] interesting details and I started from that concept.”
