Tokyo designers by and large kept things naturalfor the most recent edition of Japan Fashion Week,which ran from Oct. 18–22. Peaches and pinksdominated the models’ faces, perhaps in an effort tokeep the attention on the experimental and arty natureof the clothes on display—the city is an incubator foryoung, emerging talents, after all.

Fashionwise, the collections ran the gamutfrom dainty to bold. Standout collections includedTheatre Products, whose feminine frocks featuredprints reminiscent of a Georges Seurat painting, andSomarta, where sequins and paillettes enlivened theairy, flowing dresses.

In terms of beauty, Liz Lisa demonstrated aparticularly Japanese sexy-naif aesthetic, with cat-eyeliner, rosy cheeks and flower-bedecked hairdos, whileFur Fur took a more exaggeratedly retro approach, withbuilt-up bouffants and pale pink Malibu Barbie lips.Color popped up occasionally, too, most winningly onthe subtle swipe of lilac on the eyes at Somarta.
