Hai Karate

I’m talking Oscar fashion on Calgary’s Breakfast Television this morning at 8:12 a.m. so if you want my take on the best and the worst, tune in. Otherwise, I will leave you this Monday morning with some karate-inspired highlights from Milan and New York fashion weeks. Paris is up next.

On Sportmax, fall 2012:

“The quilting on coats, the rounded shapes of shoulders and sleeves on turtleneck sweaters, and the sporty cut of the technical-fabric pants all had their origins in the uniforms of karate, judo, and other elegantly dressed forms of fighting. Knotted black belts tied the collection together.”

On Proenza Schouler, fall 2012:

“This was a daring show, in which they proposed new silhouettes, recommitted to the artisanal tendencies that have become a brand hallmark, and headed East for inspiration—think karate, kimonos, and Yoko Ono.”
