This has been a busy week for fashion in Tokyo. Two fashion powerhouses, Valentino and Dior, showed their new Pre-Fall 2019 collections in the city.
On November 27, Valentino held its first ever fashion show in Toyko, debuting its Pre-Fall 2019 collection for men and women. The collection was a mixture of Western and Japanese aesthetics, with creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli saying, “I love the culture of Japan. It’s so modern with a sense of tradition which is romantic, not nostalgic—it’s part of the present.”
Various celebrities attended the show, including DEAN FUJIOKA, ROLA, Perfume, AMIAYA, and Ryusei Ryo.
On November 30, Dior presented it’s Pre-Fall 2019 men’s show. The collection was a collaboration with artist Hajime Sorayama. The line featured his signature robots, mixed with cherry blossoms at times. The show took place around a nearly 40 foot statue created by Sorayama for the show.
