Optimism by Soft Gallery

Soft Gallery‘s Autumn Winter 2018-19 collection Optimism is inspired by the distant shores of Japan and draws upon the distinctive traditions, contrasts, symbols, and idiosyncrasies of Japanese culture and the Tokyo streetscape.

Delicate cherry blossom prints, embroidered insects, and the Japanese crane figure as prominent motifs for girls upon dresses and frilly skirts. This season’s highlight print is the Sensu Fan, represented in various ways from all over delicate prints to beautiful embroideries on dresses, sweatshirts, and bomber jackets. Luxe faux fur takes its inspiration from the streets of Harajuku, employing colour-blocking to masterful effect. For boys, retro sports themes and animalistic prints take center stage in cozy separates and striped track suits.

And for the littlest ones, a kawaii-inspired line incorporates tiger, cherry blossom, and mascots on onesies, hoodies, and ruffled dresses.
