TOKYO — This city’s fashion week capped its seven-day run Saturday, showcasing a tamer, more conservative range of fashion that stands to profit from a newly weak yen.
Designers appeared to take a more guarded — and arguably more commercial — approach this season, turning out more clothing in black and neutrals and largely eschewing the over-the-top pieces and runway antics of past seasons. Pastel colors, fur and embellished coats were just a few of the trends that emerged during the week. RELATED STORY: Japan Fashion Week, the Trends >>
