The Bushido collection keeps to a strong colour palette of red, black, white and cream. These strong and contrasting tones are carefully chosen by Quint and are all relevant to different aspects of Japanese culture. Beige is the colour of rice paper, red is the symbol of blood and death, black represents Japanese calligraphy and outlines of engravings and white is the colour of Geisha’s makeup.
Quints intention is to channel imagery of warrior women in her AW14 collection. Her innovative exploration of shape and silhouette in which we see oversized kimono style jackets teamed with slim cigarette trousers make for an authentic collection which showcases Japanese style with a modern day twist.
