For some designers, their clothes become a billboard for their personal idiosyncrasies. And while this may be the case in 6397 and Stella Ishii never imagine. The line, which was born just two years after the hunt for the perfect course Ishii, authentically youthful jeans for its light body, immaculately anonymous.
Or so it seems at first glance. But look more closely and 6,397 pieces are distinguished by their artistic detail curtain-a silk camisole, the swing in one of the seams on denim styles signature. The Pre-Spring has a particular tone hyper, Ishii and his team called “Mr. Lee lila”, named after the maintenance man whose worn polo shirt borrowed to replicate the color. The clothes here are more or less without seasons, according to the 6397 commercial leanings. Bermuda loose with a double fold came from tropical wool.
Raglan shirts are rendered in featherweight cashmere. A highly covetable black tracksuit (or a line or embellishment in sight) marked a new direction for the brand. While the range of denim foundation is now overshadowed by offering ready-to-wear 6397, is still a force to be reckoned with in a very saturated market. This season Ishii is introducing two new styles of denim. Carpenter is a baggy, jewel straight leg (with hammer loop), and Shorty is a cut, the number of whole leg in Japanese selvedge pebble tones. There is also a deep indigo cultishly adored reprise the mech suit lately seen in Yonce in the semifinals of the Eastern Conference of the NBA.
That in itself is a testimony ineffable cool label: Bey always looks at home in her as Patti Smith, another fan, I would. A couple of graphic tees, the result of a continuous and fruitful partnership with graphic designers Studio 191, were also included. “Loseth not great streets” read. Ishii to take any risk here.
