Yusho Kobayashi

Central Saint Martin-trained Yusho Kobayashi’s collections are wearable collages. A painterly, brush-stroked aesthetic permeates all his prints, and many of the dresses and separates are detailed with top-stitched line work that begins and terminates with playful and literal loose ends. The emotive Tokyo romantic and his storybook approach feel both modern and naive.

Picnic Dress, Gingham Mix, 325

Choose your metaphor: collage or quilt. Either way, Yusho’s shirtdress updates the traditional silhouette it's based on with both fabrication and form.
