MANGA VS MINIMALISM


As manga (Japanese comics) and anime (Japanese animation) have become integral parts of modern Japanese life and culture, there is no way of escaping their influence in the fashion.
The Japanese street style inspired by manga cartoons is colourful, playful and intriguing.
Mimimalism represents extreme simplification of form, as by use of basic shapes and monochromatic pallettes of colours and anonymity of style.
The two are such contrasts, both inspiring and fascinating for different reasons. It led me to make a collection with a mix of the two worlds; The playful cartoonish world and the scandinavian minimalism.  
Illustrations and textures was crucial for me to add as the manga cartoons is a drawn world.
