WHAT CHARACTERISTICS DOES YOUR SS-2015 COLLECTION HAVE FROM AN INSPIRATION VIEWPOINT?

We feel that heritage market doesn’t change much, but super heavy weight denim might be a trend for winter and spring season. We see that the weather isn’t following its usual pattern anymore; in fact many stores and markets got difficulties with deciding on the seasonal items selection. However, our collection’s got a ‘standard spectrum’, so it’s versatile.MOMOTARO7WHAT KIND OF FABRICS DID YOU USE AND WHAT STYLISTIC CHOICES DID YOU ADOPT IN TEMRS OF FIT?
