As part of Paris Fashion Week, Wataru Tominaga, a Japanese designer presented an experimental collection via digital presentation.
The designer was praised for his gender-neutral approach to clothing at the New York Fashion Week. He continued his explorations of fluid design with the new collection. The unisex collection features hand-drawn elements and visually manipulated print in a selection that stands out from the usual high-fashion Parisian luxury and high fashion.
The designer was inspired by vintage photos, children’s mascots and plaid patterns. His ultimate goal was to show the contradiction between harmony and dissonance, with pieces that are both childlike and adult in reality.
The collection’s silhouettes further highlighted the designer’s desire to capture the feminine nature of the collection. The theme was highlighted by large t-shirts and baggy trousers, as well as loose-fit shirts and oversized t-shirts. Both the male and female models wore matching pieces.
Tominaga, who presently resides in Tokyo made his Paris Fashion Week debut, presenting his AW21 collection. This was following his digital show at SS21 New York Fashion Week. He has previously collaborated with Petit Bateau and Chanel as part of the Hyeres fashion competition.
