JFW A/W 2009: Junya Tashiro

Like many of this season’s shows at the Japan Fashion Week, Junya Tashiro was in a black mood

Black is clearly the reigning color for this coming Autumn and Winter. But no rule is complete without a major exception.

There were actually a few exceptions in the Junya Tashiro A/W line to this dominance of the ravens. They consisted of ivory colored tops and bottoms with playful line illustrations of dancing lions.

But the most eye-catching exception was a magnificent hoop dress that featured as the finale of the show. Perhaps influenced by the never-ending popularity of Lolita fashion that can still be seen everywhere in Japan?

Or perhaps Junya Tashiro was influenced by the official colors of JAPANESE STREETS? We couldn’t help noticing that, except for the lack of blue, the outfit on the photo above perfectly matches the color scheme of our site… The flowers even faintly resemble our star logo. Thank you, Tashiro-san, a truly kind tribute.

Most of the models used by Japanese designers are foreigners. They feel that their clothes look more beautiful on Western models.

Kind of a weird concept, as their customers are Japanese. They should be trying their best to make their clothes look good on Japanese bodies, right?
