Tokyo-based designer Fumito Ganryu has captured his Spring/Summer 2020 collection in a Robi Rodriguez-shot and Tom Guinness-styled campaign — the former having previously worked with Versace, Balmain and titles such as Dazed.

The Rei Kawakubo protégé who studied at COMME des GARÇONS has continued to overcome leaps and bounds since his CDG-division label GANRYU. Here, under his eponymous label, the designer pushes his message of “making clothes without gender” further for SS20, delivering a chic, contemporary aesthetic indebted in traditional Japanese design tropes, tailoring techniques and more.

Fumito Ganryu reflects upon “our tech-driven society, where everything and everyone is surveyed, quantifiable and trackable, and the only antidote is contact with nature” for SS20. As a result, pieces incorporate designs featuring digital inkjet sky, raindrop, stars and grass motifs that come together harmoniously like it would in natural reality.

Pieces such as the traditional overall mac have been elevated to include leather straps and an accentuated, long-line aesthetic, while pants are baggy and pleated in homage to more traditional Japanese tailored looks. Check out the Fumito Ganryu SS20 campaign in the gallery above, and find out more about how to purchase the rising designer’s pieces on the label’s website.

In other news, fragment design and uniform experiment have been enlisted by a private Japanese high school to design its new uniforms.
