In this latest collection, titled “RĒˈKƏLCHƏR” , Ayao Sasaki brings us classic tailoring, modern glamor, and attention to detail. She does this in order to translate a message. The classic tailoring is meant to symbolize our social norms and expectations, while the more intricate detailing represents our unique individuality. Together, this juxtaposition between classic tailoring and more trendy detailing represents the modern individual, struggling to find his/her individuality, while still being accepted and embraced by society. While this talented designer often plays with juxtaposing styles, like masculine toughness and feminine softness, this collection goes beyond just masculine and feminine, and instead touches on the human condition in general. And let’s not forget, with a statement-making, embroidered, leather jacket as part of the lineup here, the collection not only makes a statement socially, it also provides excellent style and gorgeous designs. Sounds like a winning combo in our books.
