The Obsession Continues… {Kitsuné F/W 2011}

07/07/2011 § 2 Comments

It’s just about that time again — that time when I fall in love with pretty much whatever Kitsuné has on deck for the next season. You may remember discussing with me the S/S 2011 “Passenger” collection and how much I loved its 70s-inspired look.  This time around designer Masaya Kuroki looked to the American west in the 1960s — by way of Ang Lee’s 2005 film Brokeback Mountain — for major style cues for F/W 2011.  The men’s collection clearly displays the influence of mid-century workwear, but while the womenswear is somewhat retro, it’s markedly much more tailored and ladylike.  While both collections are strong and stand alone quite well, when viewed together they noticeably lack the continuity I enjoyed in the S/S 2011 “Passenger” collection, but I don’t seem to mind all that much.

Sidenote: While Kitsuné menswear frequently makes the rounds on the interwebs, it’s somewhat frustrating to me that the womenswear doesn’t get more play, because it’s simply excellent.  The Kitsuné woman is classic, elegant, tailored and has a penchant for suits and blazers.  Parfait, if you ask me.

Below, some of my favorite looks.

I have been lusting after a fleece-lined Levis jacket for ages….!

Is this velvet or corduroy? Either way, it needs to get in my closet.

Shawl collars.  Yes.

As if that wasn’t enough to take in, Kitsuné currently has a men’s sale going on their S/S 2011 collections and they’ve recently released photos of the men’s S/S 2012 collection.  Curious as to the inspiration this time around?  Well, it’s none other than The Great Gatsby.  Can you sense my excitement?
