Sean + Seng’s Spring in Japan

The London-Based Photographer Duo Captures the Landscapes of Japan Along with the Country’s Most Refined Womenswear

To celebrate the launch of the SSENSE website in Japanese, the London-based photographer duo Sean + Seng has traveled to Japan to capture its unique landscape, along with a selection of the country’s most refined womenswear: Junya Watanabe, Yohji Yamamoto, Enfold, Sacai, Y’s, and Comme des Garçons. The photographs reveal a world that has become a postcard of its original self. Yet within this mixture of reality-cliché, we find the true beauty of the season. Sunsets speckled with commuter traffic. Apartment complexes lit yellow like daffodils. Mount Fuji looming on the horizon like the logo of an enormous water bottle. This is how we find splendor in a world that has been photographed and geo-tagged millions of times. This is how the ancient cycles itself into the powerful presence of the everyday. This is Sean + Seng’s vision for Spring/Summer 2016.
