Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo brought together 48 brands from around the world, including menswear designers and labels like Yoshio Kubo, Whiz Limited, Factotum, Jotaro Saito, Sise, Mr. Gentleman, Facetasm, Yeah Right!! and Ganryu.
Organized by the Japan Fashion Week Organization, the event featured collections for autumn/winter 2013 from 17-23 March.
What I like most about MBFW Tokyo is the unconventionalism of the Japanese designers who have an extraordinary knack for deconstructing typical dress codes and reconstructing them into novel looks.
One of the best examples is Facetasm, which, founded in 2007, embodies contemporary Japanese menswear.
Designed by Hiromichi Ochiai, the 2013 autumn/winter collection rolled out a collection full of work overalls, kilts, vests, multi-colored trousers, classic coats, hybrid baseball jacket-coats—all constructed with tweeds, leathers, and knits.
Hiromichi Ochiai was born 1977 in Tokyo, graduating from the Bunka Fashion College in 1999.
