JOTARO SAITO is the only designer that dares to present kimono at the Japan Fashion Week, which makes his shows always something truly special.

The moment the visitors are entering the hall where the JOTARO SAITO show takes place, you realize that this show is going to be very different from other shows. A large number of men and women wear kimono, and even the ones that don’t seem to have that reserved look that was so much more common in Japan even ten years ago.

JOTARO SAITO’s creations are gorgeous and makes you want to rip off your Western clothes to replace them with his refined works.

This season’s collection by JOTARO SAITO consisted mostly of subdued colors, but a few magnificent hues stood out: a very soft yellow, two versions of bright orange, a thin green, a rust-like color and a bordeaux red. Although it was an Autumn Winter collection they stood out like the first flowers on a misty morning in early Spring.
