Yohei Ohno presented his collection as a physical show for the first time in five years. While incorporating the design approaches we have accumulated so far, we have pursued an unexpected and extreme shape.
Yohei Ohno presented a collection as a physical show for the first time in five years. The keywords written in the invitation were “space and time”. Designer Yohei Ohno chose the Japanese pavilion at the National Museum of Nature and Science in Ueno, Tokyo. In the first look, a body bag was wrapped around the waist as a “bustle” to make the hip line more beautiful. The shape, which resembles a soft ball, projects a fetish for modeling. This was followed by dresses and pants with curved hemlines. Ohno says he got an idea of this unexpected extreme shape when he saw an octopus leg sausage.
Additionally, the hem of the skirt is draped, a monk-like costume that is worn from the shoulders like a belt and continuous sleeves like armor.
In the second half, colorful and powerful graphic textiles such as blue, pink and green continued. In addition to extreme shapes reminiscent of Western fashion history, airy patterns such as cross patterns and metallic materials intertwine to create an unexpected encounter. “I’m not trying to force my approach so far, but collecting various things. Ohno said that after he finished the show, he wanted to try it again. “Maybe there’s a part of me that I couldn’t fully digest through the exhibitions and look presentations until now.” Eight years have passed since the brand’s inception, and the first runway presentation in a long time has been a great source of inspiration for me. It seems that I hope he will continue to discover unexpected styles and show us his most honest creations.
