“ TOKYO WAS COMPLETELY OVERWHELMING” KLûK CGDT released their Autumn ‘15 collection named “biginJAPAN” at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week TOKYO (MBFWT) 2015. Designer Malcolm Kluk states, ‘we have included all the major trends for winter in this collection. We have juxtaposed the sharp tailoring and precision of ’Military’ without using the clichéd camouflage, with the free spirited ease of the ’70s trend. Pussy bows and sheer are huge, as is faux fur and denim.’ Set up on the streets of Tokyo, Grant Payne and Jeandre Venter of moreFIRE productions – in collaboration with KLûK CGDT X LEVI’S® and Sunglass Hut – teamed up with the striking model, Ariel, to shoot “TOKYO BY NIGHT”. We touched based with photographer/producer Grant Payne of moreFIRE https:// to ask for some highlights about his own experience of the trip and his perspective on Tokyo's street subculture.
