Julius _7 (Tatsuro Horikawa) x Takeshi Obata (Death Note)
The. Greatest. Collaboration. Ever.
Wow… just… wow. Words can’t capture how amazed I am by this. My favorite designer and one of my favorite mangaka coming together to create such a breathtaking editorial.
(Of course, there are many Japanese shops where you can get them for a much more reasonable ¥31,500.)
If you’re into brands such as Julius or Diet Butcher Slim Skin, you should check out Blackbird Ballard’s sale this weekend. 40% off select Japanese brand items, with 10% of profits going towards Japanese relief.
Samuel over at Tokyo Telephone has done a great write-up on Julius’ FW11 collection; strongly suggest checking it out.
This collection saw Julius far removed from the street punk post apocalyptia of 2009-2010 that culminated in a Tibetan cult infused vision for S/S 2011. Gone are the cluttered hanging fabrics, distressed leather and strong metal detailing, they are replaced with an altogether smarter and futurist simplistic uniform. If previous collections were what the men on the street were wearing in Julius’ future, this is what the avant-garde are wearing.
One of my favourite looks from Julius’ Fall-Winter 2011 show, entitled Halo. I strongly encourage you check out the full collection at scoute.org.
Better in leather. Found via Style Arena.
Notably, this guy is outfitted in pretty much head-to-toe JULIUS, a hit-brand among many of the boys over at our forum. Hmm, do you all approve?
