Former Number (N)ine designer Takahiro Miyashita's cult label TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist. was one of the selected labels to feature in the 'AT TOKYO' program during Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo.
Miyashita made a comeback to the Japanese runway with his 'Femme Fatale Fellow' collection.
The S/S18 work has been described as a homage to Kurt Cobain with references to Johnny Cash but our photographer captured a much darker, utilitarian view of the designer's S/S18 collection.
Attention was drawn to the appeal to both sexes when female models were seen walking the runway for Miyashita who usually designs for men.
The doors of Chichibunomiya Rugby Stadium opened up to an immense crowd of buyers, press, creatives, family and friends who were patiently waiting in line.
After about an hours wait, the Rugby Stadium could fit no more and the show was forced to start which left a large group of confused people waiting outside of the venue to hear Suzanne Vega's Tom's Diner to play as the show commenced.
Could this have been an honest mistake of miscalculation? or a statement made by 'The Soloist'?, defined as the 'one with an aloof spirit who has a concern for fashion.'
