Designer Hidenori Kumakiri brought a fresh, modern and very wearable take on traditional Japanese apparel and design motifs, which were incorporated into the collection in a subtle way devoid of kitsch factor. There was a wrap around top reminiscent of traditional summer festival wear paired with a shrunken blazer and cropped trousers, a cherry blossom pattern that was worked into jeans and denim shorts and a roomy white blouse with kimono sleeves. The less overtly Japanese looks incorporated a-line skirts with metallic appliques, leather jackets and well-tailored basics.
