The elaborate light projection of shifting geometric shapes that opened Atsushi Nakashima’s show foreshadowed the collection. The designer’s initial exits featured separates in bright solids like coats in cobalt and emerald; then he transitioned into kaleidoscopic prints incorporating all manner of triangles and trapezoids. Several pieces, including sweats and shiny parkas, had a sporty vibe.

The latter part of the show took a futuristic turn with sculptural garments — perhaps a nod to his past work under Jean Paul Gaultier. These looks had a sci-fi air to them, i.e., a black dress featuring a pink and blue grid of triangles adorning the front and an ankle-length Neoprene dress with peak shoulders reminiscent of a villainess in “Flash Gordon.”
