Staying true to Né-net’s penchant for playful, quirky clothes, designer Kazuaki Takashima tapped into manga and cutesy animal motifs for fall. Key silhouettes included A-line skirts, shirtdresses, rompers and squarish tops, all shown in various oddball prints: cartoonish eyes, gemstones, comic book-style illustrations and girls’ faces with tufts of sewn-on fringe for hair.

There were also a few pleated skirts done in gold lamé and some pieces, including wide, cropped trousers and a newsboy cap, shown in a shiny gingham check.

Takashima engaged in a bit of theatrical styling, putting many of his models in glittery masks that completely concealed their faces, and others in silver and gold headpieces in the shapes of cat and bear heads.
