Jotaro Saito runway show AW 2015

Jotaro Saito kimono runway was one of the most spectacular shows I have ever seen. I am truly fascinated with the perfect balance between modern and traditional that Japan in general is so good at but Jotaro Saito takes it to the next level. He makes traditional kimono attire look cool, effortless, nonchalant. His runway show was a sort of role-playing game. Men appeared with a big samurai-like attitude, almost bothered by the whole idea of showing off what they wear. Women were timid, gracefully gliding through the runway portraying the traditional role of a woman in Japanese society. Yet, at the same time, they also appeared hunting, mysterious, regal, almost superior to the proud men next to them. I love these misguiding appearances. I love the idea of huge power under a timid surface and a humble nature behind grandeur.

Designer’s contemporary kimono were beautiful. My favorite was a black and white graphical one with the navy overcoat. I would wear the coat alone with my normal clothes. The silhouette is very in trend right now.
