Upon reviewing 08sircus BOOK by Japanese men’s wear designer Kiminori Morishita, not only was I fascinated with the craftsmanship but the intensity and commitment of the model and photography used to convey mood and darkness of the line. The model’s expressions and posing bring to life what it took to make the line, which was taking soft fabrics i.e. linens and cotton that have been dyed with root extracts and treated intensely resulting in a hard and rugged exterior. Technology has indeed come a long way and Morishita’s darken view of the world in addition to his talent has made this line an artistic and innovative reality. This line will be available for spring 2011.
