Maison Kitsuné SS14: New Wave meets Nineties Street and Prep
NEW YORK, NY October 26, 2013/FR/
Drawing from New Wave influences and nineties urban-wear while remaining emblematic and chic,Maison Kitsuné’s spring/summer 2014 collection is fun, functional, and experimental.
The men’s line features mod tees and retro polos, paisley print bomber jackets, and deconstructed blazers with anchor buttons and sheer backs for summer days. Button-ups remain lean and crisp, with playful polka dots and plaid patterns. Premium Japanese denim makes its way in the form of jeans and jackets, accentuating the timelessness of the line with smooth transitions from season to season.
The woman’s collection features a beautifully knit tweed blazer and short set (produced in the same factory as Chanel) as well as the brand’s signature red, white, and blue drawstring. Parisian flare crop-tops, open-back dresses, and cotton sweaters feature the Oliver Fox print. A lightweight, floral motif is found in voluminous jackets and delicate shirts. Bold stripes in contrasting blue and white as well as intentionally un-hemmed trousers add a street element without being too overdone, while satin bombers and matching skirt sets give it a cheerleader-chic feel.
The spring/summer 2014 collection also features a collaboration with Oliver Peoples for sunglasses, as well as a “Parisien” New Era fitted cap in blue and red. The spring/summer 2014 line also includes “Parisien” which highlights the brand’s basics with polos and denim shirts in a wider cut, as well as Kitsuné T, an oh-so-nineties line of colorful graphic tees that are soft and iconic, with funky illustrations and strong pop culture influences, coming, no doubt, with a free music download of bands from the Kitsuné label.
