Go South Open the Gate on Decadence and Rock in 4th Collection
On January 18, GO SOUTH designers Daisuke Ichikawa and Wochi offered a collection that combined antique and modern looks under the theme of “Rainbow Colored Gate” for their fourth fashion show.
As always, the show contained avante-garde story elements that complimented the main showing of flamboyant fashion.
The main collection offered a combination of Victorian and Gothic influenced coordinates and funkier, pop-themed outfits. The main idea behind the GO SOUTH look is “monochromatic decadence,” to which they brought the “rainbow” of the show’s title by pairing the subtle colors of the main coordinates with bright and whimsically patterned tights.
The small space of parbolica-bis made for a difficult show but the designers allowed fans to take their own pictures of the collection, turning the whole room into a studio.
A short video of the fashion show can give you a look at the outfits in motion, so be sure to check it out!
Recently, members of bands such as Golden Bomber and DuelJewel have been sporting GO SOUTH looks and even though the brand’s Harajuku shop has closed, they plan to continue and expand their collections and open new stores in the future. There will surely be more unique, story-based fashion shows to come!
