Tokyo Goes Above and Beyond in Our Fashion Week Street Style Snaps
Elevated silhouettes, layering and attention to detail.
Tokyo showed us how to dress to impress in our Fashion Week streetsnaps. Experimenting with silhouettes, show goers managed to create unique and eye-catching looks through layering, mixing and matching and by accessorising in true Tokyo fashion. Of course, it wouldn’t be Fashion Week without seeing some of the biggest brands sported on the street – this time around Burberry, Helmut Lang, Maison Margiela, Rick Owens and Nike dominated the scene. Footwear seemed to be in focus, with sneaker silhouettes like Balenciaga’s iconic Triple-S shoes and Nike’s Air Force 1 Swoosh Pack making an appearance, stealing the show.
Key pieces seemed to be leather jackets with metal hardware, as well as DIY-influenced pieces with patches and customized detailing. Despite there being a lot of outfits sporting bold and bright colors, classic black and white still proved to be a winner – in true minimalist fashion. In comparison to previous street style snaps from Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week, Tokyo seemed to be less brand-focused and is slowly drifting away from the fashion world’s logomania obsession. Attendees focused more on creating a unique aesthetic and look, rather than sporting all the exclusive and most sought-after items that have dominated our previous streetsnaps.
