Pixelated Fashion


Japanese designer Kunihiko Morinaga showcases an 8-bit interpretation of the range of women's fashion, from dresses and professional suits to athletic styles and sweatshirts, in the pixel-patterned fall/winter 2011/2012 collection of his fashion company anrealage. The line debuted during Japan Fashion Week.

Primarily composed of colourful square blocks of diverse fabrics, the clothing can appear relatively conventional from a distance, but at closer range its unusual pattern is revealed. a line of shoes composed of similar materials, including pumps that feature a blocky, cubic heel, fills out the collection. during the fashion show, models also donned coloured translucent eyewear and accessories composed of individual squares and cubes, while a pianist echoed the theme with live music reminiscent of early video games.

At the tokyo fashion event, morinaga also exhibited the anrealage spring/summer collection, in which models wore plastic inflatables to distort their forms. Images can be found here and here.

The odd one I want to say: "Oh no.. someone left a JPG in with the rest of the wash.."

It'll be the new 'red sock'.

 Personally, I find this disgusting.

This actually really nice, not too practical but very interesting to look at.

I think that's the point of it, somehow.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/12/2011 01:50

Looks damn cool! Wish there were some male designs.

wish04 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/11/2011 22:12

Interesting designs. Like the attention given to the laces with the blocky cut out. Also just noticed the flower pin in one of the pictures which is a pretty nice detail.

No idea who would want to wear the design on the left. Maybe with a jacket over it and a wide belt, but alone?  And with those shoes? hng DX
