When the CLAN collection titled “Kasumi” first hit the runway at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York 2014, it met mixed reviews. But with the collection’s lookbook, more people are being swayed by its cool sporty-chic vibe.
With a theme of ‘Sports Luxury’, the CLAN team incorporated the rich & colourful Harajuku culture in Japan and a gypsy-like drapery mixed with their push to look beyond the frontiers of sportswear to produce fun, bright and simple pieces.
According to the brand, “the collection is infused with hues of Indigo upon which lilac flowers were placed to mirror the pale pink Japanese cherry blossoms against the dark blue sky at night. The androgynous sporty silhouettes were softened by executing them in silk, thus creating striking visuals of luxurious sportswear”.
