After finding a photograph dating back to the 18oo’s of a Japanese horse-drawn delivery cart, Michiko Koshino sourced inspiration from the humble courier, creating a workforce uniform of her own.
A dynamic and assertive collection, the pieces are here to be seen – with a rich colour palette and branded embroidery present throughout, playful ‘customer service’ quotes on the back of garments bring humour to the charming theme.
Featuring a range of textures from washed silks through to knitwear, the collection also features specific womenswear pieces. The iconic Koshino inflatable is seen in a completely new light, having been incased within other fabrics to conceal its usual PVC appearance.
As is typical of the brand, practicality has not been compromised through the design process, with waterproof and warm sturdy textures bringing comfort and wearability to the pieces.
