Takahiromiyashita The Soloist Fall 2019 Menswear Collection Review
Description
We're not too sure where Takahiromiyashita The Soloist wanted to take his men for Fall 2019. His heavy-layered winter garments suggested up in the slopes, but then the skin-tight cycling outfits underneath them told another story. His latest collection left us more confused than excited for the in-coming season!

There were so many elements about Takahiromiyashita The Soloist‘s Fall 2019 show that were awkward. Firstly, despite their undeniable quality, it was difficult for us to understand the outfits sent down the runway. Some were a little too deconstructed, others were too layered, and the disparities in and between them were too stark. We’ve seen our fair share of heavy layering and such, but this takes the cake on going about it too much. Then there were the skin-tight cycling-like bodysuits. Against the bulkier outerwear, they looked extremely unflattering and unelegant. And what’s with baring the legs during fall? We’re all for going against gender norms and allowing men to bare as much leg as women, but was it really appropriate for this season? We don’t know any man that’s enthusiastic to show off his legs in the dead of winter! Despite his many idealistic intentions, Takahiro Miyashita did little to fascinate us this season. Not even his ‘prints of poetry’ gimmick worked this time around. Granted this was all in the spirit of the “avant-garde,” it barely resonated in terms of forming a centralized idea for the season. It all seemed like random musings of deconstructed outerwear and skin-tight sportswear—a combo that’s more or less over and done with nowadays.
