ANREALAGE 2012-13 A/W COLLECTION from TOKYO FASHION FILM on Vimeo.
In a similar vein to his pixelated collection two seasons ago, Kunihiko Morinaga of ANREALAGE showed a strong offering of artistically wearable pieces designed around a singular concept: the passage of time. Both prints — which ranged from polka dots and checks to yellow stars — and silhouettes were stretched, smudged and distorted. The effect was reminiscent of a photocopy gone wrong — a document moved mid-way through the process.
There was a strong series of shirt dresses and coats with multiple layered hems, and collars and sleeves in gradating shades of blue, grey or brown. The footwear was also interesting. It included double-soled ankle boots, as well as penny loafers with wedge soles constructed from stacked shoe heels.
