Tokyo Now

· Runway · , , , , ,

Although the spring 2016 ready-to-wear shows have just concluded in the four major fashion capitals, New York, London, Milan, and Paris, there’s even more going on in other parts of the world. It’s no secret that Japan has always been one of the most fascinating and exciting regions on the globe, and of course, that includes Tokyo. And we’re in luck, because the top designers from the underrated fashion mecca just showed their latest work for spring 2016.

Orange You Glad?

Sorry for the corny title, but who’s excited about these new colors? For the first time in three years, the Pantone Institute unveiled 210 new shades the other day, primarily in the orange category. Sure, some of them might be a little too specific to identify, like Dragon Fire or Mango Mojito. But there’s no denying that we’ve been seeing plenty of this hue in a slew of designers’ latest collections; from the fall 2015 ready-to-wear and haute couture, resort 2016, and even the recent spring 2016 menswear shows, this particular shade’s been thrown around left and right. And we hardly doubt that’ll change when the spring 2016 ready-to-wear show circuit launches in just a few weeks.

It seems like orange really is the new black after all.

For years, the major menswear shows have been limited to London, Milan, and Paris, leading New York-based labels to either pick a different city or show during the biannual womenswear Fashion Weeks. But with the growth of the global men’s fashion market, the Big Apple began to broaden its horizons, and New York Fashion Week: Men’s finally came about for the first time this summer. Thanks to the CFDA, many could argue that New York’s menswear scene would officially be on-par with that of the other major fashion capitals, while the four-day event itself was buzzing with excitement and optimism (and of course, an abundance of street style hoopla, wild after parties, and other fanfare), even after the three-weeks of European menswear concluded last month. So, how did NYC measure up?

The fall 2015 couture shows are trekking along in Paris, but the past few weeks were all about menswear. In London, Milan, and Paris, we got a taste of what’s to come for spring and summer 2016, and designers were giving yet another new twist to typical men’s fashion.
