After Maison Mihara Yasuhiro released a slew of inventive footwear staples, like the snowboard binding sandals or the melting skate sneakers, the Japanese atelier is gracing the runway at Paris Fashion Week with its much-anticipated Spring/Summer 2020 collection.
Dubbed “Justified Error,” Maison Mihara Yasuhiro’s latest SS20 collection is comprised of a series of asymmetrical cuts alongside vivid patterns like floral patterns, mismatching plaids and various summer-friendly graphic prints. Spanning multi-pocketed tactical jackets to billowing trench coats, featured silhouettes include long bombers, two-toned military shirts, track pants, cargos and leather biker jackets. The theme of the collection is informed by a mix of deconstructed techwear and irregular proportions that offer new ways of looking at garments.
Spotlighting the assemblage is the latest iteration of a pair of sneakers, following the thematic design cues of the label’s previously released “melting” kicks. A thick white midsole sets the tone, complete with thick outlines etched around colored panels. An assortment of colors and silhouettes are offered up in bold renditions inspired by classic molds from Vans and Nike. Another highlight is a black leather biker jacket, emblazoned horizontally with blue flames. Premium silver-toned hardware is placed along the body as various studs, small pockets, hoops and snap buttons. Adjustable mini-belts are placed at the hem of the jacket, while details like zipper cuffs and wide collars top off the piece. Other items in the collection include multi-paneled denim pants, blazers, tactical vests, knitwear, baggy khakis, sleeveless jackets and various graphic-heavy pieces round up the expansive range.
