Hidenori Kumakiri showed a Hawaii-themed collection for fall, complete with palm trees in the center of his runway and leis handed out to members of the audience. Models walked as if in a trance, daydreaming of tropical locales in the middle of winter. Kumakiri turned preppy basics like wool blazers, velvet loafers, leather oxfords, cuffed ankle trousers, tipped sweaters and peacoats into a type of winter resortwear by adding tropical motifs. Bright yellow pineapples were knit into brown sweaters and mittens, and a beach scene in shades of blue appeared on a navy coat and dress.
