Unusually, Kenzo Takada of Jap was chosen for Dress of the Year two years running. This khaki cotton shirt dress seemed revolutionary when it appeared in1977, but within a few years big belted shirts and short skirts were to be an important feature of fashion.

^Thanks for some new pictures! It's really hard to find some of his earlier work... I will take photos of some more when I get back to the city. I saw a few in two books there.. They're in the reference section, so I have to just use my camera too

Drawing for S/S 1978

Quote:
Kenzo Takada (b. 1939)
pencil on paper

Japanese designer Kenzo Takada launched the KENZO brand in Paris, in 1970. KENZO quickly became known for its bold and abstract use of colour, and its fusion of traditional Japanese styles with relaxed tailoring.
These design drawings, which emphasize the exaggerated masculinity of the sailor style, use the traditional elements of the reefer jacket, striped T-shirt, pirate bandana and sailor trousers.
