KUNIHIKO MORINAGA OF ANREALAGE
apanese designer kunihiko morinaga showcases an 8-bit interpretation of the range of women's fashion,
from dresses and professional suits to athletic styles and sweatshirts, in the pixel-patterned fall/winter
2011/2012 collection of his fashion company anrealage. the line debuted during japan fashion week.
primarily composed of colourful square blocks of diverse fabrics, the clothing can appear relatively conventional from a distance,
but at closer range its unusual pattern is revealed. a line of shoes composed of similar materials, including pumps
that feature a blocky, cubic heel, fills out the collection. during the fashion show, models also donned coloured translucent
eyewear and accessories composed of individual squares and cubes, while a pianist echoed the theme with live music
reminiscent of early video games.
at the tokyo fashion event, morinaga also exhibited the anrealage spring/summer collection,
in which models wore plastic inflatables to distort their forms.
