Threads From Space

The Seattle Art Museum is showing a retrospective of Japanese clothing design that proves how fashion-forward the Great Big Hiking Co-op really is. The combination of high-performance fabrics and radical cut lives as surely on the trail and sidewalk as on the runway.

Kenzo was the first Japanese designer to show in Paris. His retail dress patterns fused Western convention with the undedicated simplicity of the traditional kimono. Subsequent innovations have opened door after door to convenience and ease.

The SAM show illuminates street style and gives me perspective on the endless wit and good sense of my fellow pedestrians.
