So basically what happened here was Blue Blue Japan ended Fall-Winter 2018. Oh, it’s still going you say? Agree to disagree. I’m actually not sure that Spring 2019 hasn’t been cancelled, too. That’s just sort of what happens when you dye a paisley-decorated flames emoji (re: Smoking Gown) a deep indigo and pair it with matching Hakama Pants.
Employing a heavyweight cotton-poly fabric woven with a fifteenth-century Gobelin tapestry-inspired pattern—that’s French, according to Blue Owl and also the internet at large—this frivolous lounge set will hurt feelings this winter and fade beautifully while doing it.
Nodding to formal-wear, the Smoking Gown features a button-front placket, a patch pocket at the chest and two patch pockets at the waist, while the aggressively comfortable Hakama pants feature exaggerated asymmetrical pleats up top, a forgiving drawstring waistband, a zipper fly with a button closure, slanted front pockets and tacked cuffs.
If you didn’t think a lounge set could come through and wreck us all, a) no one did, and b) you were mistaken. But weirder things have happened.
