Twice a year the unmistakable wooden stand at Pitti is home to the outstanding creations of creative genius Yasuto Kamoshita. If you search my archives chances are you’ll come across a series of well documented collections from the last 5 or so years, and there’s a reason for it. Simply put, if money wasn’t an issue, Camoshita would likely comprise a vast majority of my wardrobe.
As I see it, few brands are able to mix classic and casual as brilliantly as Camoshita - tailored suits and sports jackets are layered over checked shirts, plain coloured tees or Fairisle sweaters; drawstring tailored trousers are paired with sneakers and safari and harrington-like jackets. In essence, it materializes the ever-so-sought delicate balance between formal and casual, so many brands struggle to achieve.
Without further ado, I’ll just leave you to enjoy this small preview of yet another superb collection by the Japanese designer.
