Kiryuyrik’s designer Masakatsu Takaynagi uses several different textures and patterns to create an overall brooding theme to his Fall and Winter 2009 collection. Simple patterned plaids and checks are layered with coats in leather and sheen finishes and accesorized with fur shawls. The kilt is frequently visited in several looks. The atypical cuts of the jackets and coats put Masakatsu’s use of creativity at the forefront among some of his other Japanese contemporaries. Much of this structuring and dramatic effect is attributed to his time spent working under famed Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto during the early years of his career. Some of these sensibilities were translated into his works when he struck out on his own with Kiryuyrik.
