Camoshita SS15 Pitti Preview
Yet another outstanding selection from one of my favourite designers and style inspirations. Yasuto Kamoshita keeps on delivering perfectly balanced collections that combine tailored and casual elements with unique sophistication. A representation of his personal style, the collection merges a variety of influences that translate into a brilliant mix of colours, patterns, textures and luxurious fabrics. Apart from the inherent visual appeal, the pieces on display just screamed to be experienced in person: bouclé effects, open weave knits, seersucker suits and blazers, lightweight cottons or brushed jerseys create a distinct universe where even the simplest of garments is on another level.

Camoshita United Arrows AW14 Pitti Preview
Yasuto Kamoshita is, simply put, one of the most stylish individuals around. With a background in architecture and a refined aesthetic sense, heavily influenced by the strong Ivy League movement lived in Japan during the 1960s, his creations embody a modern Japanese dandyism. As creative director of United Arrows, this unique blend of Japanese and American styles results in outstanding collections, marked by beautifully tailored garments and exquisite use of fabrics, patterns and textures.
The AW14 collection maintains the line of thought, delivering a modern take on classic essentials through small tweaks and attention to detail. While the Ivy League and European tailoring references are still at its core, the Japanese will to evolve and elevate things to a new level is visible in each piece. An extensive (and for some, unusual) color palette is paired with a variety of textures, print and patterns, portraying classic elegance with unique panache: bold stripes, diamonds and polka dots come to life in topcoats, suits, blazers and shirts, adding a refreshing twist on these menswear essentials. All perfectly complemented by an array of luxurious accessories such as the paisley silk scarfs of which I’m an unconditional fan.
