This season’s collection is built as a parallel to the book written and drawn by Neith Nyer’s creative director, Francisco Terra. MM83, or Migurushii Mirai 83, (Disgraceful Future in Japanese), is a manga-like story that takes place in a dilapidated, phantasmagoric Tokyo. In the chaotic future of MM83, people have no choice but to trawl through thrift stores and the wardrobes of their ancestors to patch together new clothes… Most clothes are worn by the fictional characters of the book, and the faces of the rock bands they listen to are printed on the actual pieces of the collection. The constant comings and goings between the fiction and the catwalk are meant to generate a fantasy-like feeling. This collection also roots in the grunge culture. It’s an homage to the bizarre nightlife scene and to its powerful sexual energy.
