Founded in 2011 by Japanese designer Hanako Maeda, ADEAM is inspired by her two hometowns of Tokyo and New York, the designer’s collections perfectly fuse art with wearability. ADEAM Resort 2017 draws inspiration from traditional Japanese summer dressing. The yukata, customarily warn during the warmer months, is a lightweight kimono with a looser silhouette, made with silk crepe or linen.
Women's yukatas are traditionally belted with silk obis made with shibori fabric. Shibori is a technique where the material is twisted and bound while dyeing to create intricate patterns. In this collection, the traditional shibori is reimagined as textured organza fashioned into obi-like bow accents and deconstructed skirts. In addition to the women’s yukata, the collection also borrows from Japanese summer menswear. Natural beige and indigo-dyed linens are commonly used fabric for men's yukatas, and make appearances in this collection as menswear-inspired pieces such as the oversized trench coat and the wide-leg pant. The collection filters traditional Japanese summer dressing through the designer's intercontinental lens.
