This look comes from MIKAGE SHIN's thesis collection, "Loosing Substances: Metaphysics to Physics, between or among Genders". Mikage, the designer wanted to challenge boring gender stereotypes. They are completely meaningless today. The designer, Mikage, got inspiration from this social situation, and attempted to express new beauty and coolness by combining exaggeration of old gender bias of male and female.
For instance, she ironically incorporated Japanesese ancient samurai’s symbolic garment, "Kamishimo”, into this ladies coat . As samurai gained dignity and confidence from Kamishimo's wide shoulder shape, Mikage want to draw today’s all genders’ strong attitude and self-esteem visually and mentally. Also, the eco-leather stitches on the shoulders make more nonconservative impression for today’s truly intelligent and avant-garde humans.
