Michiko Koshino SS18 London Fashion Week Men's
It was ‘Let’s all go to the ballgame’ this season at Michiko Koshino, a throwback to childhood memories of a Japanese baseball team in the designer’s hometown of Osaka in the 1940s and 50s. #teamkoshino brandished baseball bats and pitcher’s mitts and there was even a ‘fashion’ version of full catcher’s padding. Heritage fabrics were teamed with lightweight nylons and ultra modern textures drawing a link between the vintage and the new.
Striped pants and luxe sweatshirts appeared alongside loosely layered sportswear, cropped pants and Hi Vis detail. The imagery was strong – black and white vintage prints and baseball themed creative. Yes, it was a sporty collection but seemed born of the mean streets too – this team had plenty of swagger. The Good News collaboration baseball style sneakers were the perfect finishing detail.
