Miharayasuhiro

Miharayasuhiro

Japanese designer Mihara Yasuhiro began his eponymous shoe label in 1997, quickly establishing himself as a powerful force in the footwear market. Soon after, he expanded into menswear with his signature aesthetic of muted, monochromatic colours and urban silhouettes, creating a unique language of minimalist avant-garde designs.

The word “chinpira” means punk in Japan, and this was the starting point for (and the title of) the Fall/Winter 2013 collection from Miharayasuhiro. Mihara’s punk, however, looks more like a sharply dressed Yakuza gangster than a ripped t-shirt Sid Vicious, with a sense of unconventional power and obscure beauty giving the collection a certain sophistication that other punk-inspired collections often fail to achieve. Subtle references to frequently-used gang symbols come through in the form of reptile prints, tattoo embroidery, and a consistently dark colour palette, creating a subdued aura of intimidation offset by impeccable tailoring, exclusive fabrics, and exquisite details.
