Hyper-realism, Seductive Biomechanoids, Pinups and Shearling Coats.
These alluring facets all come to play in Juun.J's collaboration collection with legendary Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama.
Juun.J x Sorayama Hajime F/W16 Shearling Lambskin Coat
Known for his remarkably prescient work, Hajime Sorayama's artwork since the 1970s have always been ahead of their time. Featuring the futuristic aura of the robotic, mythic and fantastical figures- Sorayama has been known world wide for his imaginative illustrations and left a special legacy by publishing the 'Sexy Robot,' a product made possible by integrating a robot graphic and a pinup girl.
His representative pieces were used in the collaboration with Juun.J's Fall/Winter 2016 collection projecting futuristic feels even by today's standards with their unique metallic texture. Hajime Sorayama's hand painting approach to expressing the analogue-styled futuristic theme fluidly aligned with Juun.J's collection that was all about creating a futuristic mood through the concept of 'diversion of classic.' The collaboration had also released exclusive t-shirts and sweatshirts as capsule items in addition to the mustang pieces showcased at the Pitti Uomo show.
