Maison Kitsuné FW16 Love Rises Women’s Collection

From the imagination of co-founders Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, Maison Kitsuné pays homage to its Japanese heritage this Fall/Winter 2016 season.

Inspired by the aesthetic and dreamscape created by Hayao Miyazaki in acclaimed, animated film The Wind Rises, the <<Love Rises>> women’s collection showcases elegant, ethereal silhouettes in the romantic glow of the 1930’s.

Traditional Japanese kimono dresses are redone in black velvet with a tone-on-tone guipure lace inset, worn more structured and shorter. While bold and strong, the season’s dress code is chic and feminine in spirit: the faux shearling ecru coat coupled with a matching embroidered cap and bicolor loafer; the fox-adorned lurex jacquard jacket worn over a skirt and silky, pussy bow blouse; and knitwear delicately and graphically designed with the Maison Kitsuné woman in mind.

Refined fabrics – silk, lurex jacquard, wool, velvet, woven jersey and cotton – accented with lurex yarns, braids, embroidery and guipure lace further evoke a sense of daring sophistication and zeal. With a palette of deep, intense neutrals – black and gray – offset by hues of ecru as well as dashes of bright red and silver, the collection gives great attention to texture, detail and finish.

Finally, fox illustrations by artist Dan-Ah Kim add poetry and serenity, which beautifully play upon the effortless yet whimsical Japanese mindset.
