Backlash- Isamu Katayama: FW12-13 Men’s Paris Collection | TheFashionList

BACKLASH- ISAMU KATAYAMA: FW12-13 MEN’S PARIS COLLECTION un moment avec Lee Paris, France For the Fall 2012 Men’s collection of his label, Backlash, Isamu Katayama chose “The Norban Man” or urban nomad, which perfectly described the worldly and worn offering. The intimate presentation was staged in a room transformed into a dark and hazy wooded glade by posters covering the entire wall of the gallery alcove. The models came out and met each other in the clearing, as if a ritual meeting place for transitory visitors. Passing around a flask, they talked and laughed and told stories, and then one by one went on their way. Considering the small scale of the collection there was a huge amount of ground covered. Mixing fabrics and packing on layers, the designer made the most of the ten looks. Divided into two groups, the looks balanced between a slightly rough around the edges urban silhouette, and something like street wear you might find at the wilderness outfitters. The result was intriguing, as Katayama’s hybrid concept is responding to a desire that many urbanites have, to get out of the city. With this season’s collection they will find pieces that just might help satiate the call of escapism. - Lee Anderson, Parisian Correspondent Designer website: www.callingbacklash.com
