Maison Kitsune's 2016 Fall/Winter Collection Goes East

Maison Kitsuné’s transcontinental background is commonly known in the fashion world, but while the brand’s French heritage is emphasized on practically every graphic tee and sweater it produces, its Japanese roots are seldomly referenced in collections. That ended this season, with founders Gildas Loaëc and Kuroki Masaya curating a collection of preppy workwear staples that paid homage to Kitsuné’s history in the Land of the Rising Sun. Taking inspiration from the 2014 film The Wind Rises by renowned Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki, the collection is peppered with iconic symbols of wartime Japan, from the rising sun to vintage fighter jets and Mount Fuji. Of course, the fox – which Kitsuné takes its name from – remains the most popular motif of the collection, reimagined in quirky illustrations by artist Dan-Ah Kim.
