Formerly called Nozomi Ishiguro Tambourine after its founding designer, this season the brand has a truncated name and a new creative director, Ishiguro’s wife Fumica Goto (Ishiguro continues to design his other namesake line). Goto has been working with Ishiguro — both are Comme des Garçons alums — since he first established his brand.

For fall, Goto showed a street-ready collection of unisex pieces with edgy twists. Case in point: An oversize open-knit sweater showed up as a pink pullover with drop-crotch jeans for him, and as a gray off-the-shoulder dress for her.

Sweat suits came with faux-fur hoods and panels, and patchwork shirts and shorts, in various stripes, checks and plaids. Prints, some designed in collaboration with the artist Dogu Arin, ranged from ethnic stars on a green tracksuit to red lips on a baggy white shirt, shown as a dress.
