Toga Fashion for Women
In the hands of Yasuko Furuta’s label Toga, the humble cardigan was always destined to lose its qualifier. Known for experimenting with silhouettes and adding off kilter details to its designs, the Japanese brand spins metallic threads through this V neck knit, colourblocks the cuffs and buckles you up at the waist with a contrasting belt. Sure to brighten up between the seasons looks, it pushes plain layers to the bottom of the pile.Toga knitted cardiganExposed button fastening at frontV neck, long sleeves, contrasting cuffs, all over fine metallic knit, buckle belt at waist49% polyester, 25% cotton, 22% acetate, 4% nylon; 53% cotton, 47% acetate Dry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 26"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan

Each of Yasuko Futura’s designs for her label, Toga, manages to stand out while remaining effortlessly cool (we don’t know what her secret is, but we like it). This cotton blend jumper is cut to a relaxed crewneck that’s perfectly suited to lazy Saturdays (and even lazier Sundays). But the super fine knit is detailed at the sleeves with sheer forearms and contrasting, ruffled cuffs that garner attention when the slouchy silhouette is tucked into high waisted, leather trousers.

In true Toga fashion this ‘mock shirt’, for want of a better phrase, doesn’t simply button to a neat collared closure. That’s its charm. Enthused by the label’s avant garde tendencies, its cotton poplin composition might be taken from traditional shirting, but the embroidered lace panel interjecting the doubled over asymmetric placket is something entirely nonconformist. Naturally we suggest styling it with something equally as offbeat.Toga cotton poplin and lace topSlips onAsymmetric neckline, lace panel at collar, long sleeves, slits at cuffs100% cotton; 95% cotton, 55% nylonDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 26"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan
Light grey wool cut-out oversized T-shirt from Toga.
Yasuko Furuta finds beauty in chaos – you can trace that in the collections she produces at Toga, and also in the rather skewed neckline of this shirt. You see, a common silhouette is anything but once it’s been reconfigured by the designer. It’s almost as if she’s taken a pinstriped button down, the kind you’re used to wearing in work, and purposely pulled it to hang over the shoulder, with the point collar flattened out and worn across the chest instead.Toga cotton shirtExposed button fastenings at shouldersFold over boat neck collar, dropped shoulders, buttoned cuffs, patch pocket at chest, all over stripe pattern, curved hem100% cottonHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 27"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8
Jeans form the foundation to many an everyday outfit. Regarding Toga’s sartorial agenda, they provide the perfect backdrop for a little experimentation. This straight cut pair features hardware and detailing similar to your favourite blue rinses, but the actual rinse itself is exchanged for a textured pinstripe in the style of suit trousers. Sat high on the waist, centre pressed creases keep the roomy fit through the legs in formation.Toga denim jeansConcealed hook and eye and zip fly fastening at frontRegular fit, straight, high rise, belt loops, faded wash, four pockets, contrasting stitching, branded hardware, pressed centre creases, all over striped pattern, stepped hem, partially lined100% cottonHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Rise 12", inside leg 27", leg opening 16"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan
Yasuko Furuta finds beauty in chaos – you can find it in the mishmash of patterns at her label, Toga. Not one to hold back on colour or experimental silhouettes, the feted Japanese brand reshapes the sleeves of this round neck top to flare out at the elbow. Then comes the bright pop of colour that bursts across the cotton profile in tie dyed patterns – time to demote your plain tees to the back of the drawer.Toga cotton jersey topSlips onRound neck with ribbed trim, flared sleeves, all over tie dye, loose fit100% cottonHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 26"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan
A simple shirt can be iterated through print, pattern, cut and fabric. That’s the beauty of its timelessness. Toga decides to adopt print for its own undertaking to transform this woven button down with an abstract oval print. Featuring foliage, flowers and abstract dotted details, it’s best matched with the label’s coordinating midi skirt to get a real sense of the inspiration behind the collection. So go on and be sartorially brave of heart.Toga woven shirtExposed button fastening at frontCollar, long sleeves, buttoned cuffs, semi sheer embroidered lace details at chest, all over oval print, notched at sides100% viscose; 100% polyesterDry clean onlyTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 26"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan
According to Toga there’s no need to squeeze into a skinny silhouette, it’s all about a wider than wide fit instead. The label introduce the trend the easy way, through tailoring, and carve the stretch cotton confines of these trousers with room to spare through the legs. To tackle the volume, the waistband is lift slightly higher, and given belt loops if you want to cinch them tighter. A roll at the cuffs means they fall to ankle grazing length.Toga stretch cotton trousersConcealed hook and eye and zip fastening at frontRegular fit, wide, high rise, belt loops, one coin pocket at front, two slip pockets at sides, one welt pocket at back, one flap pocket at back, turn up hem, partially lined98% cotton, 2% polyurethaneHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Rise 15", inside leg 28", leg opening 18"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan

Yasuko Furuta finds beauty in chaos – you can trace that in the collections she produces at Toga, and also in the rather random cutout spliced into this skirt. You see, there’s nothing like a little avant garde oddity to make you stand out from the crowd, and this swing free number will do just that. Cut from lightweight crepe, it’s heavily detailed with accordion pleats to make the most of its lightweight handle.

Toga taps practically all of this season’s most coveted trends with this top. Let’s start with the cut itself, which unlike your usual crewneck features cold shoulder cutouts and a sharp asymmetric hem. Next up is the print. Inspired by SS18’s penchant for throwback styles, a tie dye wash is used to give it an almost D.I.Y quality, or should we say individual? After all, the brand prides itself on creating fashion you can’t get anywhere else.Toga cotton jersey topSlips onRound neck, cold shoulders, short sleeves, all over tie dye effect, asymmetric hem100% cottonHand washTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 24"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan

Toga’s latest collection of avant garde yet utterly wearable designs is a little like a mathematical formula: add an embellishment here, subtract some fabric there and multiply the minimalism. Propelling designer Yasuko Furuta’s carefully calculated aesthetic, this knitted cardigan is patterned with a an updated check sourced from a tradition trench coat, manipulated with bigger and bolder lines woven into its shrunken profile.

There’s nothing run of the mill about Toga’s knits. Forever finding new ways to breathe new life into classic silhouettes, the Japanese brand has cardigans in its sights for SS18.
