Vantan Tokyo, not a fashion label but esteemed design school (think Parsons of Japan), brought a few young designers stateside to present their collections in front of a packed house for the first time ever at New York Fashion Week. The result was a pleasing assortment of raw craftsmanship from four promising talents.
Although each segment had moments that screamed “senior thesis project,” the collections overall exhibited forward thinking aesthetics and strong points of view. The work of Yuya Kubohara — a 22-year-old wunderkind — stood out with quilted color block bomber jackets, geo knits, and unique prints recalling the best of Proenza Schouler.
Up and coming designers at there best.
