After a debut runway presentation for in Tokyo, KOZABURO returns to his preferred method of showcasing new seasons via stylized lookbooks. Fall/Winter 2020 is showcased by way of backlit models, influenced by KOZABURO’s fascination with black holes and empty space.

The collection is appropriately named “Ma,” a Japanese word that refers to a pause between two acts or an unfilled void. This motif informs the collection and its presentation, as the dramatic lighting encourages viewers to consider the silhouettes and shapes in favor of the garments themselves. KOZABURO’s distinctive denim cuts provide the silhouettes with dramatic appeal, complementing his signature 3D boot-cut and high-rise Rumble jeans with a new jogger pant, all cut from a black denim woven with 1% stretch for a form-fitting shape.

Tie-dyed shirts printed with swirling KOZABURO branding and mandala labyrinths lend a meditative, psych-rock contrast to the collection’s artisinal craft. Key to this is a standout melton wool coat entirely held together by thick silver staples, applied by Kozaburo himself. His staple gun also pieced together accompanying sakiori bags, crafted from recycled and off-cut fabric.
