No other city in the world does fashion quite like Tokyo, and up-and-coming menswear design house Diet Butcher Slim Skin proves exactly that. Gaining a cult following with their edgy high top sneakers, the brand is making moves this season with its S/S 2014 collection “Under the Juicy Moon,” replete with rich embroidery, structural leather and cropped trousers that would make even Ms. Hepburn jealous.
Tokyo fashion bends every rule in the book, and this collection is no different, bending rules of gender by mixing feminine cuts, textures and patterns into a hard-hitting menswear collection. As designers after my own heart, “Under the Juicy Moon” plays with darkness and light with rich textures in black and deep blue. Faux pas? Not for Diet Butcher Slim Skin.
Dark, bold colors without a doubt took S/S 2014 runways by storm this season, but the brand still panders to the lightness of spring with mauve, ivory and mint accents. That’s as much conventionality as DBSS is willing to include, but even in holding to those conventions, daring cuts up the ante when it comes to men’s fashion. Ambiguous fashion is fashion at its most complex.
To step your style game up add some nuance to your personal collections with the help of Diet Butcher Slim Skin, and reap the benefits of boldness.
