Though Chitose Abe’s sacai enjoys more recognition globally, kolor, designed by her husband Junichi Abe, is immensely popular in its native Japan, garnering a sub-label (Beacon), plentiful collaborations and an impressive assortment of stockists, from niche boutiques to Dover Street Market. Fall/Winter 2020 is a continuation of the cues that make the brand popular among devotees, with a rich assortment of patchwork layering pieces and slouchy silhouettes.

A variety of dynamic photo backdrops play host to kolor’s new goods, offering plenty of texture and pattern for maximum visual interest. For instance, cardigans are mashed up with safari jackets, jackets sport unusually sporty linings and sweaters are notably stitched and patched, making for busy styling when combined with the label’s signature puckered pants and woven sneakers. Elsewhere, gentle splashes of paint grace wide work pants for a touch of hands-on workwear, while care tags are utilized for blown-up shirt graphics or stitched onto pullover sweaters, accenting metallic printed text like “zigzag.”

Expect the new range to hit kolor’s Japanese flagships and stockists later this year.

Elsewhere in Japan, Children of the Discordance introduced its own pattern-heavy FW20 selection.
