kolor Spring/Summer 2017    

As a graduate of Tokyo’s renowned Bunka Fashion College, designer Junichi Abe launched his innovative brand kolor in 2004. kolor’s sophisticated menswear collections are built on the idea of balance – whether it be materials, shape, price or era – and have been shown at Paris Men’s Fashion Week since 2012. In addition to being selected as the guest menswear designer for Pitti Uomo 84 (2013), Abe has also designed a sportswear line in collaboration with Adidas since 2015. Known for his innovative approach to reinterpreting garments and materials, the designer aims to create pieces with an enduring nature. “I want to convey a feeling, the emotion and the mood of the times. But I also want my products to be appreciated for a long time,” he recently told The Woolmark Company.

kolor's Spring/Summer 2017 menswear collection incorporates an Asian mood while retaining the brand's modern and elegant style. Coats with relaxed silhouettes, light short-sleeved shirts and deep-crotched sarouel pants are prominent in the collection, which features a colour palette of subtle greys and blues paired with viridian green and fuchsia pink highlights. Textured materials are matched with Asian motifs, geometric prints and embroidery – complete with lace-style cut outs – that add a special touch to a sophisticated summer outfit.
