Young Japanese designer, that exhibited with Vauxhall Fashion Scout, has been feature in Fashion 156, a magazine that aims to celebrate emerging talents. This time they got amazed by Yusuke Maegawa, who´s style is defined by the use of eclectic materials and his signature surface decoration. His main idea is to design and create real clothes.

The feature highlights how Yusuke constructs looks, as well as the importance of paying attention to detail, like the leather collars, or the pieces he designed that creates the illusion like a turtle shell cape.

Consider to be a deconstructionist, the silhouettes he creates are asymmetric using angular draping cuts, giving a new definition to Japanese deconstructionism.  This new way of constructing garments ensures a new point of view and innovative design of clothing, and promises different things to see, merging and mixing things that we might know, to create something new.

As result pieces to smile for, like Susan Walsh, the author of the feature, does.  Enhancing the playful attitude of the handbags that blends fur, plastic and other materials, that brings a colourful touch.

This interest on combining different materials and innovation spirit, plus the concept of searching for real clothes, turn this designer into someone worth to follow and see, for example, how others get amazed by his collections. To enjoy the feature click here.

Well done Yusuke!.
