Yasutaka Funakoshi is the designer behind Alice Auaa, one of Japan’s highest profile Goth brands. This season he showed a somewhat brighter take on the genre, turning out a collection that was mostly white and ivory. Intricate corsetry and ruffles featured prominently while the models’ long, silvery hair and Lucite-heeled footwear with buckles running up over the knee provided extra-dramatic effect. A large metal ring contraption was strapped to the bloomers of one model. Two even more bizarre looks presumably tapped into the show’s “Sleeps in Water” theme: a model in a fish-head mask wearing an inflatable skirt and another one wrapped in strips and bows of what appeared to be seaweed.
