Halfway through the dressedundressed show I already had a story in my mind: inspired by James Bond’s Dr NO the chiseled models in leather military and wool overcoats and their mistresses wearing nothing but boxy wool blazers picked from their employers’ closets were actually spies and on the hunt for a target in the audience. How so very 70s spy-game chic!
But according to the designers as they explained afterwards the collection was inspired by *vampires* , specifically the movie “The Hunger”
Sharp details were meant to be “cutting” they explained, and the sunglasses were made with a red mirror film to add a bit of “blood” to the potion. These sunglasses are made in collaboration with Mykita and they are fantastic.
Also pay attention to the textiles here, with some pieces getting dressed’s signature wax coating, but this time it has leveled up. Even with the clothing passing right in front of me, I couldn’t tell if it was leather or leather coating. In fact, it was cotton, an exquisite trick of luxury that keeps japan brands on the map.
