Atsushi Nakashima Mercedes-Benz fashion week Tokyo Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 classic “2001: A Space Odyssey,” Atsushi Nakashima sent out a collection of Space Age ath-leisure wear. His set and lighting scheme was a nod to the tunnel in Kubrick’s film, but the designer said the majority of the movie’s influence came through in the collection’s palette, dominated by black and white, plus red and khaki. Flashes of gold and silver gave a space-y effect.

Aside from some interesting textile choices such as Neoprene and a high-tech, synthetic “ultrasuede,” many of Nakashima’s pieces were indistinguishable from basic gym wear. There were loose, knee-length shorts for men, color-blocked leggings and tennis skirts for women, shapeless printed T-shirts and solid tank tops. A drop-shoulder Neoprene sweatshirt with an exaggerated funnel neck was more fashion-forward, while other looks were elevated by clever styling, such as a fitted, knee-length khaki dress worn over a long skirt in a similar color.
