I love this!

It's almost like Margiela, Pierre Hardy, and Yohji got together and created a line.

Runner, is there an official website for Kolor?

Ah me lovey! The whole mood is so perfect for fall/winter.. slightly decadent but not quite. I wonder what the texture of the fabrics is like as the pics are very grainy (which looks nice to me.. but I'm just curious).

Thanks for sharing!

you are all welcome


the designer is a man named junichi abe, another ex-cdg designer.
this label was started four years ago. but he is a proficient independent designer.
he had been doing a label called ppcm for ten years since 1994.
(strictly it's a designer collective though)
it was one of the best tokyo vernacular brands, and had some cult following.
it also went overseas. so some of you like johnny might have seen it over there around seven years ago.
it was meticulous about details.
mostly it could look basic at first glance and nothing ostentatious or blatantly cool.
but it had a exquisite sense of smelling the times and knew well where to put itself there,
which I think kolor has inherited.


stores will start to post pics of individual pieces where you can see the texture better soon, and I will post them then.
fabric on the whole is in good taste with a bit of something peculiar.
although I haven't touched this stuff from A/W 08 yet, I think from the past seasons it's comfortable, and sometimes secretly luxurious even.




S/S 08 just for reference

cozy is the word that came to my mind as well...
which i guess can be translated to mean comfortable and secretly luxurious...

:p

it seems like one would feel very at ease or relaxed in these pieces...

thanks for the pics and also for the info runner...

I saw the current spring/smmer kolor collection in stores and I must say the design is very common and comfortable... but I think they should improve the material they use. I mean they are charging for high prices but the materials just don't match up with quality.
