Brazil is well-known for its mosaic of diverse cultures and populace. However, how many of you were aware of the fact that it actually is home to the largest Japanese population outside of Japan? A Japanese Brazilian, 日系ブラジル人 Nikkei Burajiru-jin, nipo-brasileiro,  is a Brazilian citizen, national or natural of Japanese descent, or a Japanese immigrant living in Brazil. In fact, there are between 1.4 and 1.5 million people of Japanese descent in Brazil. This very fact seems to have made a strong impact on Phillip Lim who decided to dedicate his S/S 2013 Collection to this marriage of the two cultures.

Wide-legged karate pants, embroidered at the sides are a statement trend of his collection. Lim followed his nose to Mixed Martial Arts, which brings together Asian martial arts traditions with something closer to street fighting. “It’s born from make-do and the ghettos,” Lim said backstage after his show, which he headed with a snatch of a poem called “Street Fight.” Then he clarified: “I wanted this character that was street stylers—fighters with hustler swagger. You’re born from nothing, and you use clothes to get somewhere.”

Phillip Lim took the denim pants to a whole new level. Wide and thin horizontal stripes, with two main alternating colours, is another statement trend of his, which reminds me why he is not only mine, but  the industry’s favourite upcoming designer, especially when it comes to men’s clothing. Lim recently won the CFDA’s Swarovski Award for the best emerging menswear designer.
