Designer Koji Udo continues with the tougher moto style trend while mixing in some military aesthetics and tailored fits for the FACTOTUM spring and summer 2015 presentation. The collection is named “Various Life”, which is fitting since the collections draws its inspiration from visited landscapes and people met along the way. All these layered elements that make up the world surrounding us is what Udo hopes to present in his clothing. Strong notes of denim and faded camouflage complement the light, khaki tones of bomber jackets and moto vests for his menswear collection. His line seems befitting to the current streetwear trends for fall and winter, but he plays it up with some colorful, punchy patterns for spring to avoid feeling completely washed out in neutrals.
While most designers end the runway shows with a finale of all their designs, FACTOTUM gave a graphic visual of antonyms. His always clean tailored pants were dressed with tee shirts bearing sayings like “Hope And Despair” and “Badness And Goodness.” These are all words that humans attach themselves to emotionally and are all a part of various lives.
Below are a few images of Udo’s spring and summer 2015 presentation for Tokyo Fashion Week.
