And there the realtime stopped… You know how it is, I tried my best to keep all the show reviews as close to the actual presentation as possible, but with school, shows and going back and forth between these, I just couldn’t find the time to get to my laptop. But anyway, expect a few Fashion Week related posts here and there during the next few weeks!
Anyway, I stopped at day three! My last show of the day was the FASHION hongkong in TOKYO presentation, a joint runway show by five designers from Hong Kong showcasing their work in Tokyo. Each of them had an incredibly unique collection ready to show us!
A beautiful collection with the poetic name Lorelei, made up of hues and tones of blue and white, bringing together transparence, geometry, harsh lines against light movement and an overall airy and fresh feeling! I loved the inserts of pleats and transparent jackets and blouses – and I would be really happy if the box jacket in the last photo just magically appeared in my wardrobe right now!
Models crowned with bird crowns, fresh and dynamic color combinations and swallow patterned colorful goodness! The collection is titled The Happy Prince, which happens to be one of my favorite stories as a child. Such a fun and playful (Kentama!) collection and I somehow feel we might see a lot more swallow themes pieces in the next season, as I’ve seen the image around a few labels now.
The collection is titles Mermaid Circus which made me look at the flowing dresses coming towards me as some kind of underwater imagery, but when I read the designers comment on her collection it seems to be exactly the opposite. She hopes for an equal and peaceful world where everyone can create whatever wonders they come up with, very much like the illusions and surreality you would encounter in a circus – just for real! The world would be quiet, peaceful and colorful as she says which is quite like the ocean right now. I think it is a beautiful collection with a beautiful message – I just can’t seem to figure out where the horse pattern is fitting in with all this, even though I visually very much like it!
Super sleek and futuristic collection by KOYO named Welcome on board. I can only imagine on board of an actual space ship taking us the next Sensation Party. White, transparency, voluminous silhouettes, rainbow applications, holographic accessories – but what I loved most about this whole collection were the sunglasses! You all know I have a thing for circular shades and the ones KOYO presented would definitely bring my collection to the next level.
Of all the designers that showed at this show LU LU CHEUNG was the most innovative for me. “Light it up” is a collection made up of very simple pieces, broken apart and then brought back together into beautiful constructs that bring together effortless chic and a nostalgic feel. I loved everything about this collection and it definitely opened a few more doors in my head – if it is still possible to reinvent an old white blouse there are really no boundaries!0
