Designer Atsushi Nakashima played with sharp angles and geometric elements this season. His dresses — including a show opener in bright scarlet — featured handkerchief hems and drapes of fabric. He then progressed to a series of body-hugging tops and pants in abstract cube prints in grape, fuschia and gray. Key pieces included a skirt and jacket combo in perforated leather, a pair of sculptural dresses sporting an abstract splatter-type pattern and a boxy coat dress with a shimmery gold finish. The bustier played a prominent role in the show — appropriate given the designer’s past work experience at Jean Paul Gaultier.
