Maison Mihara Yasuhiro‘s recent surge in international popularity off the back of his bespoke sneaker shape hasn’t inspired the Japanese designer to stray from his core design ethos. “Basic Antinomie,” Yasuhiro’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection, is rife with the de/reconstructed elements that inform much of the creative’s oeuvre, elevated with new silhouettes and applications that only further his aims.

Processed denim and militaristic cues meet in an aggressive hybridization of familiar menswear shapes: parkas, bombers, field jackets, turtleneck sweaters, cargo pants and long johns are oversized and finished with raw hems and sudden panels of contradictory textiles. Heavy washes, custom dyes and dynamic prints ensure that few finished pieces are alike, though many sport specially designed care labels sewn to their exteriors. Yasuhiro also demonstrates adventurous patternmaking with denim jeans that shrink when washed and jacquard shirts woven from laundry tags, standout garments that demonstrate his desire to stay as far as possible from convention.

“We still don’t understand the meaning of fashion, but we’re doing what we believe in,” Yasuhiro said in a statement. As the designer explains, “Basic Antinomie” is “when we think rationally according to modern global thinking, we always result in a paradox. This is because it’s beyond the possible experience of the limits of one’s own reason.”

Other Fall/Winter 2021 collections recently surfaced from the likes of Eye/LOEWE/Nature, Wales Bonner and Namacheko.
