Fashion: Fantasia Utamaro and Komatsu Seiren amaze with their collaborative textiles

Posted by Emily Beber,

Finally it has arrived! Manga camouflage! Don’t know what it is? Well you definitely will before the month is out as descending on the European fashion market are these spectacularly designed outfits lined with quite possibly the brightest prints you will have seen in a long while. Working in collaboration with the Japanese government to promote Japanese creatives, internationally acclaimed textile compant Komatsu Seiren and leading art director/illustrator Fantasia Utamaro are setting up pop-up shops across Europe to display and sell their collaborative textile garments, products limited edition goods. Launched on Tuesday at the Premier Vision textile fair in Paris, the project is already off to a strong start and we cannot wait for them to arrive at 39.39 shop, London at the end of the month!
