For his Fall 2009 collection Jun Takahashi opted out of the usual Paris showing. Instead, he took two  models into a forest outside Tokyo in subzero temperatures and  photographed them on a silver “runway” consisting of a few Mylar  survival blankets laid end to end. The show lasted quite a while given the reduced staff, you can actually see the daylight fading shoot after shoot.
That the girls elegantly withstood the freezing cold for several hours decked only in outfits from the collection was of course the whole point. Building on his work for the Fall 2007 collection, Takahashi borrowed fabrics originally developed for NASA and injected them in his creations, marrying wools and leathers with PCM microcapsules and wind-resistant membranes and turning the garments into technological marvels.
