Alice Yasutaka Funakoshi’s spring collection, inspired by Alice in Wonderland, was chock full of the kind of theatricality for which his brand is known. Models emerged from a fog wearing tattered hoop skirts, lace covered corsets and Victorian style bloomers, as well as sculptural gothic dresses. Some of the more unusual exits included a red plaid snake-like tube that spiraled around one model from head to toe, and metal frames in the shape of giant playing cards held up and attached to a nearly naked male model with a leather harness. At the end of the show the designer came out in a goth-looking rabbit costume and removed the head to take his bow.
