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.

  • The blue 40s dress with the black lace trim, the camouflage jacket, and the tartan jacket are inspired.

  • Some of this is awesome, and better still it makes me jealous, which as a design student is a great motivator.

    I especially admire the glasses – I don’t care that they’re unwearable – pointless exploration of creativity should be encouraged, if only to make utilitarian life more bearable.
