Tokyo-based label Doublet just presented one of the most interesting runway shows of Paris Fashion Week. As the Spring/Summer 2024 season continues, we have seen designers explore all areas of time. While some have returned to their routes, Doublet heads to the future.
Doubletâ€™s Masayuki Ino placed a sentimental note on every seat at his show, detailing an emotional journey of rejection. Seamlessly written by a computer, the runway was set in an artificial universe. Inoâ€™s shows often touch on current global concerns, now embracing the development and fear of artificial intelligence.
A futuristic approach was delivered with a humorous background as some models sped down the runway on hoverboards and others stormed through like hurricanes. Doublet presented digitally-faded denim ensembles with a vintage finish, technical mesh outerwear, and ordinary brown bag-shaped accessories. An array of metal-foiled looks arrived with slashed waistlines and frayed edges, while LOEWE-esque â€œI Heart 3Dâ€ graphic tees boasted a digitalized and three-dimensional design.
Evil scientists with horned hair, â€œArtificial Relativity Scholarâ€ lab coats, and Dr. Doublet name tags cautiously marched beside elegant soldiers wearing tweed military jackets and leather pants secured from golden chains. A futuristic dolphin closed the show with a novel look, exhibiting a sinister animal face mask, a frazzled tweed jacket, and silver-trimmed jorts.
