Good evening. This is Ikeda.
Paris Fashion Week has ended, but it's fun just looking at the collection during the collection period.
I'm also happy to see that more Japanese brands are starting to appear on the official schedule.
I would like to see Japanese brands establish themselves in a world where overseas fashion houses are crowded together.
Do you get the impression that many of these overseas maisons have begun to lose their street elements in recent years?
In the past few seasons, I feel like there has been a return to basics, such as tailored and classic styles.
However, I feel that the category called "luxury street" has gained status and established itself, so even under the umbrella of overseas maisons, various categories are mixed together, which makes it even more interesting. Is not it.
It's also interesting that some brands are just starting out and their designs change every season, causing them to wander.
The collection has begun and an exhibition of the brands we carry will begin next month, so today we would like to introduce ULTERIOR's DOBBY CHECKS MIL-SHIRT.
This is also very good.
As the name of the item suggests, the design source is a vintage military shirt.
Military shirts tend to have pockets on both chests, but this one only has pockets on the left chest.
The flap pockets are characterized by their large size and make a good statement.
It has an open collar, but the top button can also be fastened, so I think you can change the look just by fastening it.
Since it has a boxy silhouette, I think it can create a nice shirt-jacket-like atmosphere even if you open it all up and put it on.
The most distinctive feature is the three-dimensional dobby check.
It is completely different from the so-called plaid pattern, and I think you can feel that it is a very unique check pattern.
It's a check that is difficult to describe, and it makes me realize once again how difficult it is to describe ULTERIOR fabrics.
I'm trying my best to convey it, so please forgive me if it's hard to understand.
The dobby check uses a two-color top thread instead of a single color.
Two-color top threads are woven on a dobby loom to create a three-dimensional checkered pattern.
Even though two colors are used, the colors are very similar to the fabric, so you can't tell unless you look closely.
It's typical of ULTERIOR to create an ambiguous atmosphere by using threads of multiple colors like this and using very detailed devices that you can't see unless you look closely.
As stated in the item description, the dobby check finished in this way has a Western feel but also an Eastern feel, making it a pattern that seems to be a mixture of various cultures.
It looks like an antique, but also has a newness that doesn't belong to anything else, and it feels like it's a mixture of all the elements.
It may be that it has space to make the wearer think.
As for the silhouette, as mentioned above, it has a boxy silhouette, giving it a relaxed fit.
Coupled with the thin fabric that is slightly see-through, I think it will be very comfortable to wear as the weather gets warmer.
The only color available is BLACK, and it goes without saying that it is easy to match.
Checks are a pattern that doesn't stand out too much, so even people who don't like checked items should be able to wear them without hesitation.
If you pair it with NEPPED OLD DENIM 52 TROUSERS , you might be fooled into thinking that spring has arrived.
January is coming to an end, and it will be a time when winter and spring temperatures are starting to mix.
I'm getting tired of the cold, and regardless of the mixed temperatures, I definitely want to get DOBBY CHECKS MIL-SHIRT for spring .
