Coming Soon | Kolor Tuesday February 04, 2014 Founded in 2004 by Japanese designer Junichi Abe, kolor is a thoughtful brand that places heavy importance on fabrics and materials, developing new textiles every season. It’s through these tools that kolor updates classic menswear pieces, along with Abe’s intellectual approach to design. Every element of a garment informs the others, so that the cut, details, and fabric all work together to create a cohesive and functional piece. The Spring/Summer 2014 collection from kolor sees Abe working with prints, something relatively rare for the label, and used in a way that effectively injects a little happiness into the collection. Florals and updated Hawaiian prints give the line a relaxed, vacation-y sort of feel, with no sharp contrasts present to startle or alarm you. It’s a collection that adds a little fantasy and reverie to the luxurious materials and expert tailoring that normally keeps it grounded in reality. Kolor is now available online and in-store.
