TOKYO — Retailers generally praised the collections at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Tokyo, but said the timing of the shows and prices might limit their buying.
Key trends at the six days of shows, which ended Saturday, included the use of men’s wear fabrics, variations on suiting, baseball/varsity jackets, romper suits for both genders and asymmetric detailing. Buyers, some of whom received complementary trips to Tokyo from the Japanese government and fashion week organizers, were mostly upbeat in terms of the quality and execution of the designs. Still, there are some lingering questions, including the fact it is already late in the fall buying season.
