Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Tokyo  presented their fantastic collections celebrating the Fall/Winter 2013-14 season. Here is a continuation of our coverage with the final roundup of designers who definitely caught our eye!

 

 

DressCamp

 

With designer Toshikazu Iwaya at the helm, DressCamp has been lighting up the wardrobes of the fearless fashionista (or fashionister) since its inception in 2002. The Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection gives us an inimitable vibe which can easily be felt on the hip-hop/breakdancing corners of New York. Unexpected uses of various textures gives off a fun rhythm with hits of vibrancy in the cut and colour and also definite not-so-subtle hints of edginess which isn’t lost even on their version of the Little Black Dress. DressCamp throws caution to the wind and plays it all up!

Kamishima Chinami

 

After graduating from Esmod Japan Fashion College in Tokyo, Kamishima decided to take in the world and found herself hopping from one coutry to the next, collecting  plenty of inspiration points and muses along the way. Having launched her first collection in 1998, Kamishima is a well honed artist who understands the fashionable needs of her sophisticated market. Her pieces are not only inspired by nature but the workmanship of each one including hand dying using such a fantastic array of hues, is a testament to her fashionable focus to the details.

Gut’s Dynamite Cabarets

 

Not only does their name pack a punch,  but this self-proclaimed “sexy-rock” underwear design label found its own spotlight with their Fall/Winter 2007-08 collection. Since then, they have been amping up their rockstar beats through their experimental aspect of clothing, silhouette and as seen in this Fall/Winter 2013-14 collection,  fearlessly frollicking with a fantastic lineup of models, some who I swear are real life wrestlers to boot! The pieces are a little bit of everything: strong, soft, colourful, muted and definitely not for the faint of the fashionable heart.

The Dress & Co. / Hideaki Sakaguchi

 

Their focus is to “interpret elegance from another angle” and celebrate the adulthood and the realness of the woman. Sakaguchi channels his Parisian design sensibilities often found in the most noted design houses and at the chicest boîtes. From head-to-toe Sakaguchi appreciates the varied tastes and silhouettes that present itself in every curve. The Dress & Co. takes a very classic route to the perfect dress. Sometimes detours can just be distractions. A straight route to classics is all one needs.
