ARCHIVE STYLING Vol.19
Archive Fashion Newly Defined by Stylist Lambda Takahasi
There is a big difference in elegance emitted between a regular vintage clothing, and designer items that have been given a vintage touch. An outfit consisting entirely of vintage items may make a classic styling, but an outfit featuring vintage-looking designer items somehow presents a more modern impression. An exemplar styling is the combination of this Martin Margiela biker jacket from 2004 A/W, a denim best by Saint Laurent for from 2016 S/S, and a patterned shirt by Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme from 2002 S/S. We went for a rather rock taste since we have high hopes that the comeback of Hedi Slimane will again bring rock-inspired styling into the spotlight. We do not know yet for sure, but another part of enjoying fashion is to go ahead of our time.
From 2005, Takahashi studied under Haruhisa Shirayama, and eventually began his own career as an independent stylist from 2008. Currently belongs to Office Shirayama.
Takahashi’s original styling is highly acclaimed in and outside of Japan, and his work ranges widely from magazines, catalogs, and the Paris Collection. In 2017 A/W, he also launched his own brand R.M GANG.
