Theatre Products/Kingly Theatre Products

Akira Takeuchi and Tayuka Nakanishi’s Theatre Products and Kingly Theatre Products label has been gathering much attention of late. An exhibition in Shibuya’s Parco in January and substantial interest from the press has earmarked this label for future glory.

However, on Thursday’s Autumn/Winter Collection for Japan Fashion Week, Theatre Products managed a less than thrilling show in Nihombashi.

The collection gave a nod to both grunge fashion, made famous by Marc Jacob’s infamous collection for Perry Ellis in the early 90s, and retro gaudy floral prints found in your mother’s closet.

The menswear line (Kingly Theatre Products) consisted of nerdy interpretations of grunge chic – lots of checked shirts, twee thin cardigans, bulky knitwear, and green male shawls.

The Theatre Products collection had a hint of wasted suburban housewives with jersey dresses, a black and golden evening dress, sickly colours with added pom poms and light fur jackets.
