Migh-T, By Kumiko Watari, presents S/S 11 – “Long Distance Love”, and appearance at premiere fashion conference, “Who’s Next”.
Textile fashion designer, Kumiko Watari presents her S/S 11 collection titled, “Long Distance Love”.
The inspiration for the collection came from Kumiko’s fascination of worldly stamps and her romanticizing of other distant countries and far away lands.
Following on from the iconic koala print from the AW 09 collection, “Long Distance Love” explores the spectrum of emotions one goes through whilst in a long distance friendship.
Hand drawn illustrations of stamps, airmail and gifts between friends and lovers are just some of the prints that take pride of place in within the collection.
Delicately hand drawn illustrations compliment the softness of silk, bringing new depths to the pieces.
Pure silk and cotton jersey feature heavily and are crafted into petite-cropped as well as over-sized tees, all in one playsuits and dresses.
By reaching into the playful nature of the inner child and mixing it with a skilled knowledge of her craft, Kumiko presents a beautifully unique and distinct collection that further solidifies her profile as one of London’s premier textile fashion designers.
