Young designer Michael Mrzyglod introduces a colourful lookbook for his debut collection entitled Chin-suru. In modern Japanese slang, “chin-suru” is a verb meaning “warming up food in a microwave,” or quite simply, “microwave.” For the designer, it stands as a metaphor for cultural and social changes that have taken place in Japanese society over the last century, resulting from the Meiji reformation.
Featuring bold styles and wild colors, the eye-catching lookbook showcases a modern new collection of menswear. The muse of the collection, the Khoi fish, lends its hues to the collection’s pieces. The fish’s influence is further evident in the collection’s graphic prints, flowing fabrics and the hooded headpiece. This lookbook is truly a piece of performance art. Mrzyglod is currently studying at the London College of Fashion.
