Mixing rigorous cuts with poetry is what has brought Atusoro Tayama, Japanese designer, into the light. Alongside Yohji Yamamoto, Kenzo or Issey Miyake, Atsuro Tayama is yet another Japanese artist to conquer Europe in the past years.
1975, he graduates from Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo. He then worked for Yohji Yamamoto. This 5 year collaboration brought him to France to develop the brand.
At 29 years old, Atusoro Tayama decides to launch his own label which surfs on the already ongoing trend of the casual-romantic spirit. His first ready-to-wear collection is presented in Japan in 1984. In 1987 he comes back to Paris.
Atsuro is known to master an rather urban and androgynous style. For his Fall Winter 2014-2015 collection, East and Western culture and trends collide. The collection embellishes the silhouette with subtle draping and minimalist shapes.
The designer proves that staying warm with several layers is not out of style. Atsuro uses fur in small doses to keep us cozy and allow his clothes to have a more tailored effect.
Atsuro aspires to empower women with a very architectural silhouette. Blacks are enlightened with greens, blues, and whites. The outerwear is put to the for with very structured oversized jackets that transform the silhouette. Femininity emerges from the collection with brighter colors and prints.
Faithful to his taste for geometry and simplicity, Atsuro Tayama dazzled me once again!
