Hangzhou China-based brand just happened to participate in Tokyo fashion week at a tense time for Japan-China relations.  (Both countries are squabbling over the ownership of a small archipelago.) The Chinese buyer and press representation at the shows so far appears to be barely perceptible. So it was only logical that JNBY designer Li Lin’s presence prompted questions. When asked post-show if she had had any problems getting to Tokyo given the situation, she responded with a quick no before her handlers whisked her off for TV interviews. Just before that, she showed a wearable collection of sportswear separates and dresses in hues like soft gray, tan, melon and eggshell.
