SHAKUHACHI ‘The Young Ones’ Spring/Summer 2013 Lookbook
Posted on May 17, 2012 by Rex
The Young Ones Shakuhachi’s latest offering for Summer 2013 has nothing to do with the TV series of the same name.
Although, it would look killer on Vyvyan.
The collection has balls. The fourth element is skin and lots of it. Silhouettes are cut out and play with framing the back and midriff (we’ve got 6 months of stomach crunches to get to) and refined gowns with Angelina Jolie thigh high splits.
A clear 80’s vibe can be felt through loose lounge suits with a hedonistic edge. Slick pantsuits with a lick of black racing stripes on the trouser. Nearly every fabric seems to have a slick or sheen – from iridescent rose gold silks to high-shine silver leather and suede.
Personally, I’m coveting the luxe sports styles, the slouchy grey sweat dress, navy silk bombers and the matching boxing shorts.
Shakuhachi manage to mix 80’s suits, midrifts, sport inspired styles with beatnik dusty coloured lace in a baby doll shift dress. If you can’t find something to dribble on the screen over in these images, I suggest you look again.
