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.

Stitch Flower T-shirt, 110

A vaguely abstract hand-stitched flower augments the front of this black tee-shirt, but it’s the bright blue woven detail along the collar that really charms us.

Remix Knit, 200

Made up of no less than four upcycled sweaters and landing somewhere between cardigan, crewneck pullover, and modern soft sculpture, this patchworked knit is the ultimate statement piece.

Picnic Dress, Brown 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. Extra earth-tone panels sewn below the waist create drape and flow while the overall cut-and-paste aesthetic yields an ongoing narrative that only you can complete.
