Daisuke Obana brought a breath of fresh air to fashion week with his first runway show at the Park Ave Armory. Obana has shown a clear passion for period dressing, starting last season with his Twenties mug shots collection. This time around, he drew inspiration from the early 1900s classic mountain climbing style; he played with proportions evident in voluminous outerwear with short cape silhouettes, inventive trench hybrids and wide-legged pants cropped under the knee. Although at times it felt a bit costumey, Obana’s use of traditional herringbones and tweeds mixed with lush cable-knit sweaters brought the collection back to modern times.
