Giuliano Fujiwara have always been invested
in merging the fashion world of Japan and Italy and their A/W 2008 collection
looks to be a continuation of that theme. The far right photo is the perfect
example of this: an oversized hip-hop style jacket complete with tape next to
slim jeans.

It has to be noted that while it is a good example of a mixture of
Japanese and Italian tailoring, it’s also this season’s silhouette and part of
the 80’s trend. And therein lies the problem with the collection: the lack of
originality. Sensing that they weren’t going to win any awards in this
department, it looks like Fujiwara went for wearable pieces and on that front,
the collection works very well. How much you like this collection will simply
be down to whether you prefer originality or wearability. [pictures via]
