Miharayasuhiro Fall/Winter 2009
Mihara Yashuhiro is the brilliant Japanese designer and owner behind men’s clothing line Miharayasuhiro. Yashuhiro is mostly known for his collaborations with fashionable sneaker brand Puma, that resulted in artistic advertising and beautiful shoes.
His Miharayashuhiro Fall/Winter 2009 collection was one of his most impressive presentations yet, and focused on the idea of travel. Well titled as “Left to Right“, Yashuiro philosophized how the modern male traveler would dress on the ancient silk road. Left was as to Right as West is to East, and cultural elements of both societies merged together in the collection. Elements such as Eastern avant garde proportions and Western affinity for black showed well. Eastern printing techniques were translated onto Western neo-hipster scarves, and funky knits suited for left and right capped off most ensembles. Moreover, it was a meditative collection that succeeded in being both philosophical and fantastically hip. The next question therefore is, when is the women’s collection debuting?
