Kim Jones pays homage to Harajuku-based designer Brit Christopher Nemeth
Mood board: Designer Kim Jones is known as an avid collector; his most extravagant and obscure tastes lying in punk era London designers like Seditionaries, Body Glove and Vivienne Westwood - however his prize cow has always been Harajuku-based Brit Christopher Nemeth, to whom he paid tribute today with an entire collection designed in elegant homage. Jones mined his archives for a series of twisted rope prints that arrived resplendently flocked, painted, embroidered, etched into fur, and generally lavished across the collection's cashmere denim, double face t-shirts, parkas, and of course, that checkerboard Damier leather.Finishing touches: At times Jones' work is misunderstood - the visual referencing, layers of detail, and at times emotive triggers require a second look. This season, he crisscrossed Vuitton's messenger bags over that printed denim, a subtle bondage reference to the likes of Robert Mapplethorpe.Team work: Shout out to Christopher Nemeth's family, who were in Paris to pay tribute to the iconic designs of a father and husband. His friend Judy Blame (a longtime collaborator of Jones) lent a hand too, crafting the intricate safety pin and button brooches that festooned breast pockets in lashings of crocodile and horn.
