Hiroyuki Horihata and Makkiko Sekiguchi stayed true to their expertise for turning out relaxed but elegant takes on traditional Japanese dress. Once again they produced plenty of wrap coats and dresses referencing the kimono but they also branched out into more fitted items — such a motorcycle jacket and leather pants — to give the collection some contrast and edge. The collection’s standouts included capes and skirts with handkerchief hems — some of which were made with a wool fabric perforated to show a silk lining through the holes. Also of note: some lovely ombre prints in ink blue and canary yellow worked into dresses and skirts.
