Tamae Hirokawa’s spring offering was inspired by falcons and thunderbirds, and for a collection that didn’t use a single feather, many pieces accomplished the feat of resembling winged creatures while still remaining wearable. The designer employed a palette of black, white, red, blue and grey, along with an almost Escher-esque geometric design, which was printed on dresses, embroidered onto stiff vests, and knitted into fishnet bodysuits. Jackets that came to protruding points at the back recalled birds’ tails, and thin ruffles in chiffon and tissue jersey on necklines, sleeves and hems fluttered like feathers as the models walked the runway.
