For his debut collection, Atsushi Nakashima started things off with a pair of sharply tailored suits and a dress — all featuring geometric patchwork details. The designer, who worked for Jean Paul Gaultier before launching his own line, progressed on to sporty items made of shiny synthetic fabric like a motorcycle jacket and trench coats. He also worked abstract prints into pant suits and short dresses. This show seemed tame and a little more commercial- by Tokyo standards- until he wrapped the proceedings with a handful of looks high on drama. Reprising the geometric theme, he adorned one dress with mirrored shards and created a large sculpted metal collar on a black gown. A siren in a vampy red dress and cape worthy of Flash Gordon closed the show.
