For fall, Tsumori Chisato gleaned inspiration from prisms, diamonds and rainbow colors. “I wanted to make a very happy and playful collection,” said the designer. Mission accomplished.


A kaleidoscope of hues flowed across everything from dresses, sweaters and skirts in arcs, lines and waves coming in paillettes, knits, silk and fringe. Another prevalent leitmotif was a diamond’s geometric outline, which also cropped up in various forms.


Silhouettes varied dramatically in the whimsical collection whose strongest looks included some of its simplest — a crochet dress with geometric panels and a patchwork top and long skirt ensemble in oranges, purples, pink and ivory.
