@IZREEL designer Kazuhiro Takakura threw every single article of clothing and accessory in the book – stopping short of a Thom Browne floor-length skirt suit – in his latest men’s collection. Slouching capris, leggings, leg warmers, puffy vests, fluffy scarves, super-tight jeans and even leopard-print ankle boots ensured that Takakura’s Fall/Winter 2010 collection did not lack variety, to say the least.

Styling and layering aside, would men want to wear what constitutes the label’s motto of “58% Real, 42% Passion?” Actually, when the looks are picked apart, the answer is yes. And it explains the popularity of the seven-year-old label, which boasts a standalone store in Harajuku, presence in numerous department stores across Japan including PARCO Part 1 in Shibuya and an online shop.
