PAUSE: The Pixelated Fashion of Kunihiko Morinaga

Japanese designer Kunihiko Morinaga did a sweet 8-bit line of women’s clothes for Japan Fashion Week. Designboom has more.:

primarily composed of colourful square blocks of diverse fabrics, the clothing can appear relatively conventional from a distance, but at closer range its unusual pattern is revealed. a line of shoes composed of similar materials, including pumps that feature a blocky, cubic heel, fills out the collection. during the fashion show, models also donned coloured translucent eyewear and accessories composed of individual squares and cubes, while a pianist echoed the theme with live music reminiscent of early video games.
