As the weather grows hotter and hotter outside, it is a nice time to look forward to cool fall air, as well as the wardrobe that comes along with . . . 

Maison Kitsuné’s A/W 2016 collection, Love Rises, takes Japanese imagery head-on; Kitsuné’s bridge between Tokyo and Paris could not be more evident in this collection, as cofounders Gildas Loaëc and Kuroki Masaya found inspiration in the Hayao Miyazaki film The Wind Rises.

Mt. Fuji, sculpted Niwaki trees, and the rising sun all make graphic appearances, lending a retro feel to the pieces, still narrowly avoiding a cartoon or brand-centric vibe; less directly-themed garments, especially jackets of unexpected fabric choices and patchwork, are reminiscent of Comme des Garçons, and feature cuts that elegantly reference Japanese tradition.

With Love Rises, Kitsuné so beautifully takes it one notch further than the idea; one step ahead of an already-done Japanese theme, one ahead of preppy, and surely one ahead for the brand.
