Known for his creative way of combining colors, fabrics and prints in his men’s line, Junichi Abe flexed similar muscles with his women’s collection. Oscillating between girly and masculine, the clothes played on the same Hawaiian florals and surf motifs as in his men’s line: a neon elastic waistband came on a translucent pleated skirt with jewel-tone satin shorts underneath; graphic bands of blue plastified fabric on the backs of roomy T-shirts.

While Abe’s feminine knit cardigans with satin ribbon bib-fronts and girly dresses in technical organza were charming, it’s the boyish silhouettes — Bermuda shorts, polo shirt, white shirt and floral pants — that stood out.
