Factotum RTW Spring 2015

Koji Udo was inspired by the young characters in the 1970 film “A Swedish Love Story.”

The young characters in the 1970 film “A Swedish Love Story,” by Roy Andersson, wear motorcycle jackets and slim pants and jeans as if they were a uniform. Inspired by the film, Koji Udo made those items staples in the latest Factotum collection. The result was one of Tokyo’s stronger men’s shows of the week.


Udo divided his looks by color. First was a group of slim pants and textured knit sweaters in a mix of pale, neutral tones. Next came what he called the “vivid” section, which saw camouflage reimagined as a funky graphic print in primary colors on bandannas, T-shirts and button-down shirts. The same camouflage created an interesting 3-D effect in a satin jacquard for drawstring-waist pants, blazers and coats. A series of black leather moto jackets and sweatpants with tuxedo stripes rounded out the lineup.


For his finale, Udo asked the models to choose from a lineup of message T-shirts heralding such thoughts as “hope and despair,” “love and hate” and “high and low.” He said his aim was to give expression to each person’s identity, which is what he considers the point of his clothes.
