Back to black: interview with Yasuhiro Takehisa, stylist at Alexandra Groover

Once upon a time a uniform of all black was more of a style statement than a sign of being well and truly credit-crunched. So all hail Alexandra Groover, whose collection is black, black, black and has nothing to do with the doom and gloom of the depression. Groover’s stylist, Yasuhiro Takehisa explains that the black backdrop allows for the emphasis to be on the shape and structure of the clothes. “Young designers have to exaggerate everything they do in order to stand out,” explains Takehisa. Could this mean we’re doing a Winehouse and going back to black? Yes please.
