Just a block away from Takeshiba stop on the Tokyo waterfront new Transit Yurikamome line, we made our way to Gallery916 for the 5351 Pour les hommes et les Femmes AW15/16 collection. The backdrop for the event was more business like and it had a cosmopolitan feel to it. Very different from the busy Shibuya hustle and bustle so, we made our way to the industrial building housing Gallery916, which was the event location.

On the 4th floor right outside the elevator, we got ushered into a room where the design team was going over final adjustments for the show. Knowing we were in the wrong location, I asked if I was late? There was this puzzled look on everyone’s face then the head of PR took us to the backstage area where the models were getting prepped for the show. As a matter of fact, we were not late and there was still some time to spare.

The backstage area was setup with makeup and hair station with the respective team member’s lead by Yusuke Seaki for makeup and Dai Michishita leading the hair team.

The models make their way from the hair station to the makeup station, the look we got to see for the hair was a wet hair look on model Monica Jablonczky, with strands of hair contouring the edge of the face in an undulating fashion. The makeup was a dark smoke salmon smoky eye.

The A/W 2015-16 Collection marked the 25th Anniversary for the brand and it was appropriately titled THE NEW RULES.

The styling by Tadashi Mochizuki incorporated a multi layer wardrobe for AW 2015/16. A turtle neck paired with a collar button down shirt acted as the canvas for the ready to wear menswear portion of the collection.

Autumn Winter collections don’t have to be dull and this collection is far from it.

Plaid was a feature throughout the season collections and 5351 Pour shows us their take on plaid with a three piece suit of that fabric in red tone with black color as accent.

These are not your grandpa’s suits, the styling of the suits was done with careful consideration for all the elements needed. The shoes, the one side sling and the hats were al accessories that added dimension to the Ready- to -Wear collection.

If you see Red in the Runway is because this A/W collection has more than a few shades of grey, it incorporates Red as a featured color not only as a accent tone in accessories.

The indigenous patterns of this wrap along with the fringe element make it very unique. Paired down with a leather jacket as above and you have a hit for Autumn/Winter.

Called it a Cape, Wrap, Ruana, Poncho, Blanket if you wish, the truth be told this outer garment is making its come back into full gear at the fashion capitals of the world.
