For its 2019 fall/winter collection, Junichi Abe’s kolor imprint has taken a drastically different aesthetic compared to previous offerings. The key to this collection was in juxtaposing elements that even spread through to the photography of the range where models are contrasted against a series of different everyday scenarios such as office environments and laundromats.
Asymmetrical motifs are rampant throughout where mismatched textures, patterns and ideas are thrusted together to create a new aesthetic. The more obvious contrasts are found in pieces such as v-neck sweaters, trench coats with wool cardigans laying over and track tops while subtlety in the theme can also be seen in puffer jackets with toggles that are normally found on more traditional duffle coats. Furthermore, the vision extends further where lengths and proportions on outwear pieces take a step away from the usual silhouettes we are familiar with.
Take a look through the lookbook above and keep an eye out for the pieces to release at select stockists in the coming months. For more on kolor, the brand also created a selection of asymmetric sportswear pieces that are releasing now.
