Japan Fashion Week doesn’t kick off until next week, but Michiko Suzuki, the designer behind Yohji Yamamoto’s Y’s Red Label, got the season off to a pagan start Wednesday evening, showing her all-black spring collection to fashion editors assembled in a large ring in a Tokyo park. Veiled models with tiny white lights adorning a shoulder or a thigh soon made way for a more sober offering of pantsuits and evening gowns — some backless and sporting thin chains. Then things got quirky again when the models’ heads started sprouting tree branches adorned with dead birds. “The theme is witchcraft and I’m the witch,” Suzuki joked post-show. “It’s like a reverse time trip, from the future back into the past.”
