The Journey show of Asa Kazingmei showcased his amazing creativity for men’s and women’s wear in the form of edgy structured clothes with extreme detailing in leather and denim with the mix of ancient warriors’ influences and contemporary punk culture made a dramatic, emphatic, style statement on the ramp.
Asa worked only with a fabric base that comprised leather and denim but detailing was once again with the intelligent use of metal work that featured chains, spikes and fringes. The sharply cut garments in myriad silhouettes offered structural cuts, detailing and were further enhanced with clever embroidery.
The laser cut black hoodie was a battle-ready offering with multiple-strap-detailing, while the fringed harness over black Tee and matching denim trousers accessorised with cropped knit gloves made a strong statement.
While the sheer Vest with leather straps teamed with a fragged shoulder cover and trousers matched the aggressive nature of the embellishments and was very eye catching. The fierce collection made fashion statements in leather waist coats, corsets, beaded fringed miniskirts, and moulded corset dresses with extended conical shoulder detailing. Foot wear for the men were calf high military boots, while the amazons moved in wearing gladiator stilettos.
Giving a modern twist to the breastplate, the designer offered it in leather with the most intricate and detailed designs to present a male/female wardrobe options that announced fearless but strong fashion elements.
