Designer Mailko Kurogouchi embraced traditional Japanese fashion for Mame's Ready-to-Wear Fall 2018 collection. The capsule features a heavy use of silk fabrics, intricate embroideries, kimono silhouettes, as well as an interesting palette that "ranged from indigo and mint green to taupe and tobacco," as WWD describes.

The fashion house drew inspiration from Charlotte Perriand—a pioneer in the fashion design industry and "the first woman designer to spend time in Japan." Maiko Kurogouchi's robust and dreamy silhouettes are informed not only by traditional Japanese fashion, but also through the country's arts and crafts. To balance the old with the new, Mame used accessories such as a stylish transparent bag to provide a noticeable juxtaposition to the heritage-inspired Asian elements in the ready-to-wear collection.
