Harking back to Japan’s long-running love affair with baseball, Michiko Koshino‘s Spring/Summer 2018 offering walks the wafer-thin line between nostalgia and future-facing fashion. Showing at London Fashion Week Men‘s, the collection incorporates a disjointed sense of patterning, texture and materials — a juxtaposition of nylon and wool, of tartan and reflective panels — which, though seeming at odds when viewed individually, traces a very specific arc of Japanese history and of Koshino’s own personal narrative when taken in as a whole.

With baseball jerseys and knee-length socks picking up the athletic theme, the collection is softened by the presence of snug, wearable sweatshirts and versatile pinstripes.
