Anrealage explores the interplay between light and darkness for fall 2015

Having recently moved from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo to Paris Fashion Week, Kunihiko Morinaga, the creative mind behind cult Japanese brand Anrealage, presented some weeks ago his fall 2015 collection that merged fashion and technology in an impressive way, creating an array of optical illusions that left the fashion crowd absolutely breathless. The highly conceptual collection comprised a series of sculptural designs that were adorned with white circles that evoked spotlights and whose color and patterns changed when put under ultraviolet lights, revealing a series of floral prints, polka dots and tartan patterns.

In order to accentuate the dialogue between light and darkness, the models’ bodies and faces were painted black, while their heads were covered in a series of brain-like helmets that made them look as if they had escaped from Tim Burton’s “Mars Attacks!” science fiction film. Kunihiko said that the inspiration behind his innovative collection could be summed up in the following sentence: “Light up the dark — to see what is not there”. His photosensitive designs indeed opened a gateway to another reality, making us experience what can only be seen with the eyes of imagination.
