Fashion Rocks with Japanese Designers at Men's Fashion Week Singapore 2012
Organised by Fide Productions, with Title Sponsor, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, four Japanese designers – known worldwide for setting trends of cutting edge styles – turned up the sartorial stakes on Friday, 20th April, the 3rd day of Men’s Fashion Week (MFW) Singapore 2012, with their stylish and wearable Fall/Winter 2012 collections on the runway at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Hall F.
Accompanied by famed Japanese pianist, H Zett M, Japanese glam rock cult label, Diet Butcher Slim Skin started off Japan night showcasing a collection that is a mix of piano sound and electronic music by DJ Mass. The collection had a 19th Century European gentleman feel, accentuated with blues or reds. Orange was the statement colour for second Japanese designer, Jun Hashimoto, who showed a collection of fine tailoring that featured leather jackets, shearling coats, neatly tailored pants. Following Jun Hashimoto’s show, the music interlude was provided by Japanese singer Kamiji Yusuke, who drummed up the atmosphere with his high energy and motivating performance, accompanied by drummers and dancers in Japanese-styled robes.
Up next was Pascal Donquino, who presented a sleek show that featured a Country Club chic collection of clean cuts, padded jackets and vests, and a neutral colour tone. H Zett M once again took to the stage to perform, captivating the audience by playing the Steinway piano in breath-taking speed and unparalleled finesse.
Closing the night was Factotum, with utilitarian and military-inspired looks as the core of each collection, precision tailoring and layering were showcased, with checks, scarfs and outer-coats.
The stylish crowd went wild as Yuna Ito walked out in an ivory ball gown and blew away the guests with her power-house vocals to end the 3rd night of Men’s Fashion Week Singapore. Belting out 3 songs, Yuna Ito’s angelic voice mesmerised all and left the crowd wanting more! However, a mini fashionisto, Sorao Fukatami, the 4 year old son of Hisashi Fukatami, designer of Diet Butcher Slim Skin’s, stole the hearts of the audience as he won the best dressed of the 3rd night.
