CHIKAE IDE, VIVA! VOL­LEY­BALL

Prestige (Singapore) - - FASHION -

Michele al­ways has some­thing cute in his col­lec­tions. His Bos­ton ter­ri­ers Bosco and Orso ap­peared last sea­son. Snow White and Bugs Bunny turned up for Spring/sum­mer 2018. There was the Guccy teddy bear in Cruise 2018, and re­mem­ber the child-like scrawls of Coco Cap­i­tan and Guc­cighost?

Now he looks East — Chikae Ide, the Ja­panese il­lus­tra­tor be­hind Viva! Vol­ley­ball. The manga was first pub­lished in 1968, a time when vol­ley­ball was pop­u­lar in Ja­pan. Some of the new-sea­son sweat­shirts and T-shirts fea­ture her orig­i­nal prints. You’ll spot Natalia, a Viva! Vol­ley­ball char­ac­ter on a mouliné knit jumper in the show, as well as the quintessen­tial man­gastyle pair of eyes along with the words, “to be con­tin­ued”, in Ja­panese.
