WANSIE’s “Colourless Collar” Collection at Paris Fashion Week by Shinya Kuraoka

Dear Shaded Viewers,

During Paris Fashion Week, I had the opportunity to visit the showroom of WANSIE. The brand’s latest collection, intriguingly named “Colourless Collar,” offers a fresh perspective on workwear. Traditionally, we associate “white collar” with office workers and “blue collar” with laborers. WANSIE, however, transcends these classifications with their innovative designs.

Drawing inspiration from Japanese workwear and functional clothing, WANSIE’s collection redefines modern professional attire. Their approach to fashion emphasizes practicality and minimalism, creating pieces that are as functional as they are stylish.
