Né-net designer Kazuaki Takashima said he thought about his own interpretation of heaven and hell for his spring/summer collection. He started things out with a few highly ruffled numbers in bright scarlet—a symbolic nod to blood and death—before moving on to scores of floor-length tiered dresses, which veered somewhere between Texas compound wife and Raggedy Ann. The matronly look continued with a series of long smocks worn over prairie-style skirts. “I did all these ultra-long dresses because I think of people in heaven wearing flattering clothes and these don’t show any leg,” Takashima said post-show. Yes, and not much of anything else was on show either.
