anrealage fall winter 2011

Anrealage was the breakout collection for me this 2011-12 fall/winter season. Last season we saw really fun and experimental clothing, but it could be difficult to imagine one wearing the designs in that state. This newest collection however, was so perfect in its uniqueness as well as in its presentation that I was mesmerized throughout the entire 10 minute show.

And those SHOES! Don’t miss these babies! I certainly couldn’t; my camera was like a sniper’s sight that kept them in the crosshairs. BAM! It was love at first sight.

Anrealage named this collection “low” in reference to low resolution, or pixilated graphics. Certainly, a mosaic-like print was the star of this collection, splashed all over tailored jackets, dresses, tights, shoes and eyewear. There was even a piece that looked like jeans bleached with a pixel pattern. Even the “polkadot” patterns are actually pixellated when seen up close…






ANREALAGE is having an exhibit and ordering fair for this collection in Tokyo this week.
If you really, really, really, really want to purchase something, contact me on the right and I`ll see if I can work something out with the designers.

God was in the details here, with laser-cutout patterns glued on top of each other making for a lot of fun textures. Anrealage also has a patchwork shop so they can create those mosaic camouflage pieces and a beautiful brocade patchwork coat.

It was pitch-perfect for this season, full of color and introducing the throw-back 80s style graphics of the Nintendo era in a sophisticated way. Very 8-bit chic.

These shoes were my favorite part of the collection! I wanted at least three pairs. Actually, I loved a LOT of pieces from this collection, including the tights. But I didn’t order anything…I know I`m going to regret it. Too many weddings and new equipment for work to buy this season! 泣


この靴たちがコレクションの中でのお気に入り!最低でも3足は手に入れたいって思ったな。靴だけじゃなく、他にも気に入ったピースは沢山あった、タイツとかね。けど、何も注文しませんでした・・後悔するのは十分わかってます。けど、仕事のために買わなくちゃいけなかった道具が沢山あたったの・・涙 私だって、仕事をしている女性だからね。
