River Island presents the latest collaboration from Tourne de Transmission. Inspired by the brands eastern infused design philosophy, the collection draws from Japanese clothing cultures old and new. 14 pieces of ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories epitomise Tourne de Transmission’s ability to re interpret traditional influences and pattern cutting with a distinct contemporary aesthetic.
Traditional Japanese design techniques and fabrications combined with modern Tokyo street culture references were the starting point for this collection. Kimono and wide leg trouser shapes are cut from natural cloths such as linen, canvas, cotton and denim. The western shirt is cut in a patchwork design inspired by the Japanese Boro technique. Modern nods to this garment construction method are realised in the block jersey sweat, patchwork denim jacket and matching jeans.
