According to the show notes, this collection’s theme was “bright,” but that turned out to be something of a misnomer. While the clothes displayed a range of colors from green, gray, navy and beige to lilac, orange, gold and yellow, the tones were definitely on the subdued side. Designer Ato Matsumoto employed what he called “ladylike” fabrics including rayon and acetate to create interesting draping on men’s jackets, vests and hooded tops. The suits stood out from standard officewear with slim cuts, collarless jackets, bands of fabric crossing from one shoulder to the opposite hip, and cropped tuxedo jackets.
