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.

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.
