Founded in 1997 by Hisashi Fukatami, Diet Butcher Slim Skin is a Japanese fashion label based out of Tokyo. The label focuses on producing modern clothing with punk influence and a brand manifesto of freedom in clothing. The unique approach to crossing punk style designs with classic, sophisticated clothing styles has made the label highly regarded in both Japan and a growing international community. This is not the current collection, but I kind of thought it reflected a bit of a stronger creative direction. You can see the other collections at their website or view more detailed shots of their garments at Oki-ni.
So I know I usually will only post more "fringe" kinds of artists/designers on here, but Dior Homme captivated me just a little bit, no?
Red is a definite popular motif recently... I think it was first used very effectively with Damir in his SS10 collection, Julius does some nice things with more blood reds, especially in his leather (see the bag below); as I have previously posted Yohan Serfaty used red really nicely as does Yohji Yamamoto, and my all time favourite: The Carol Christian Poell Shoes.
But I digress....
Who could forget Yohji?
