Faithful to his all black aesthetic, Japanese designer Julius showed a dark and moody collection on Friday morning. The silhouette was long and slim with loads of thin cotton draped over body tight leather jackets. Light grey pieces featured but the focus was on the flowing black fabrics and defined waists through superb Cumberland belts. A couple of shimmering gold leathers brightened things up a bit, and a few models wore thick silver necklaces to contrast the darker shades. Over sized T-shirts and sleeveless furs was layered to great effect and coats worn as capes finished off another consistent collection from Julius.
Dazed Digital: What was the main inspiration behind the show... Julius: There was a religious theme for this one, based on the idea of monasteries, the spirit of saints and the pureness of faith. It was mixed with the noise and sounds of the city. I like the contrast between the two...
DD: What was the idea behind the silver necklaces... Julius: It was about reflecting light from the metal, like a razor.
DD: What kind of fabrics did you use? Julius: Soft wool and soft leather - it was all soft and drapy actually!
DD: Do you have a fave piece in the show? Julius: A jacket inspired by monks, it has a simple neck and folded material.
