Yoshio Kubo is known not only for his edgy collections, but also for sending his models down the runway in wacky hair and makeup. This season he featured a series of helmetlike wigs in styles including Mohawks, dreadlocks and braids.

The majority of the looks were casual and street-ready, with pieces such as oversize rain ponchos, blouson jackets and tops in abstract and geometric prints, and puffer vests and toggle coats trimmed in bright aqua fur. Some jackets had extra panels of fabric attached to the back hem, giving the impression of a long shirt layered underneath.

Kubo also injected a dose of preppiness into the collection via patterned sweater vests, Fair Isle zip-up cardigans and a navy sweater with red and white stripes and a trompe l’oeil gold medal around the neck.
