Yoshio Kubo’s invitation featured an image of a bull-fighting ring, which was just the first indication of his Spanish theme this season. The show opened with a group of senoritas in ruffled dresses spritzing perfume along the runway. Then came the flamenco dancer, clad in all black and tapping, stomping and clapping his way through the entire show to the accompaniment of a classical guitarist.
Kubo’s first looks included numerous variations of nautical stripes with a fresh Mediterranean feel. Kubo then turned back to his inspiration, working some very literal takes with a bull-fighting vignette print on baseball jackets and more tailored jackets and shorts.
