ARCHIVE STYLING Vol.12
Archive Fashion Newly Defined by Stylist Lambda Takahasi
Do you know about the shocking vest by Martin Margiela that was released for their 2006 A/W collection? It broke the preconceived ideas of what a vest should look like, by connecting almost twenty different leather belts. It is better described as an “artwork” than calling it a “clothing”, but if the designer himself had reasons to launch it to the public as a clothing item, we ought to try it on. However, one must be careful not to be overridden by the powerful vest. Try donning it with other statement items, such as a military jacket by ISSEY MIYAKE from the 90’s, and Martin Margiela leather pants. The striped turtleneck that is subtly showing is from Hedi Slimane’s DIOR HOMME from 2005 A/W collection. Dot the i’s and cross the t’s to complete a confident look.
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.
