Rynshu Menswear Spring Summer 2014 Paris

The blinding light reflected on the mirrored back wall at Rynshu's spring-summer 2014 show recalled one of two things. One, white hot sunlight that had finally found its way back to the City of Light; two, the intense lighting of rock concerts. That Rynshu loves to create cinematic settings for his shows is no secret and this iteration continued in this vein.

Revisiting punk/rock imagery, he proposes once a wardrobe that transcends the boundaries of gender.

Beyond the knee-jerk appeal of "rock chic", is the reality as good as the fiction he’s spinning, to a soundtrack by the Strokes and Jack White’s Love is Blindness (of Baz Lurhman’s Gatsby fame) blaring loudly long after the show had ended?

Clearly, the Rynshu wearer is no shy roadie, dressed to shine onstage in light amplifying orange and sequins. Slashed skinny jeans decked in safety pins, suits cut from perforated material flashing skin on closer inspection, jackets worn with a chest-hugging tattoo and no shirt, even the sculpted line of an arm outline a manicured version of the genre. It is less Kate Moss and Pete Doherty than a glamorized, special effect heavy blockbuster rendition of them. Despite novelty materials – punched meshes, paper thin leather, fancy mixes of silk and polyurethane – and the inherent qualities of Rynshu’s execution, it seems that his vision revolves around the same tropes in ever tightening circles.
