ARCHIVE STYLING Vol.28
Archive Fashion Newly Defined by Stylist Shotaro Yamaguchi
When did the Japanese become so cowardly towards fashion? It’s finally the season for autumn and winter clothing, but all people are wearing are simple and basic outerwear. Fashion, as a concept, should be free and something that people can enjoy. Why not then challenge yourself to find an item this fall/winter season that is decorative to the uttermost level? Our recommendation is a refined Napoleon jacket. Even better would be if you decide on a piece for DIOR HOMME from the period of Hedi Slimane, which is known for its popularity among archive items. This jacket, combining the tight silhouette style and the elaborate design that Hedi is best known for, will definitely raise the spirits of the people wearing it, and you definitely won’t find yourself wearing the same item as other people. During the 2006/S collection, we combined this item with a pair of damaged denim jeans, but it might be interesting to change things up and combine the jacket with a pair of short pants from COMME des GARÇONS HOMME PLUS. Our motto for this fall/winter season is ‘More freely, more joyfully’.
