Helmed by designers Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii, MISTERGENTLEMAN showcases various inspirations in a collection comprised of evocative takes on tailoring. The collection also features casual pieces such as puffer jackets, borg trousers and a Harrington-meets-track jacket. The show also shined the spotlight on a fragment design collaboration, seen on a navy satin bomber jacket featuring a heavy dose of embroidered co-branding.
Standout looks from the runway include a selection of panelled asymmetrical double-breasted coats seeing a mix of fabrics such as wool and faux fur, borg and snake printed wool, tweed check and, finally, a woollen blazer featuring a panel of green corduroy stealing the limelight in the outerwear category.
Deconstructed trench coats, cropped puffer jackets and faux fur coats round out the outerwear offerings, letting the coat lapels worn as vests steal the show from thereon. A purple leather piece adorned with chunky silver hardware and zips is seen alongside a varsity jacket cut-out and duffle coat cut-out, each worn over the outfit like you would a utility vest. The middle section cut-outs of these archetype coats offer an ingenious and original take on layering, and although unpractical, add depth to the runway looks.
MISTERGENTLEMAN rounds off the show with a vast selection of trousers, with key looks including the purple velvet slim-leg pair, burnt orange velvet cuffed sweatpants, blown-out distressed black slim jeans and complementing baggy washed-black jeans, and finally the baggy borg pants.
