Discovered 2011 S/S Collection
The 11th Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo is happening! Several times each day, TokyoFashion.com’s contributors are reporting back from runway shows all over town. We’ll be posting pics and updates from the events and shows as we receive them, so keep checking back for more JFW fun and fashion.
On Tuesday, October 19th, Japanese label Discovered showcased their 2011 Spring/Summer collection on the runway at roomsLINK in Harajuku. Compared to their recent collections, Discovered mixed a lot more colors and patterns into this young-feeling menswear show.
Discovered was founded in 2001 by Tatsuya Kimura and Sanae Yoshida. The original concept for their menswear collection was a “real clothes” aesthetic with sleek lines and monochromatic palettes. They also enjoy juxtaposing contradictory themes – such as in their 2010 A/W collection show, in which delicately faced models were dressed in tough-looking ensembles.
