Japanese designer a degree fahrenheit presented his autumn winter collection at the Berlin fashion Week 2013.
If one were to condense the philosophy of “A DEGREE FAHRENHEIT” into a simple formula, it would be this: enriching the uniqueness of the individual. Yu Amatsu spent several years in New York working as a pattern maker for Marc Jacobs and Jen Kao, and during this time he developed a keen sense for sophisticated decoration and sensual textures. His latest collection was dedicated to the number 1292. 1292 degrees Fahrenheit is the point at which glass begins to melt, and Yu Amatsu took this moment of transition from sharp material to a fluid state as his inspiration.
Entirely in white, his designs catch the eye with their flowing, unusual silhouettes, which contrast with angular cut-outs and delicate mesh inlays. Yu Amatsu’s designs claimed the grand prize in the Gen Art International Competition for two consecutive years, and the talented Japanese designer from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo is now displaying his latest collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
