To Motohiro Tanji, knitwear is about more than just basic pullover sweaters and cardigans — and for spring he said he wanted to “show a total expression, including new types of knitted fabrics, designs, styling and production.”
Tanji, who uses both hand- and machine-knitting techniques, produced some eye-catching pieces with a textural quality to them. Highlights included a ruffled, short-sleeved top in gray paired with matching wide-legged pants and a sleeveless red dress worn over leggings. Several more daring numbers punctuated the lineup: a skin-baring halter top and dresses featuring 3-D patterns composed of ridges and loops of yarn. This was an interesting collection, but perhaps one better suited to a presentation in a well-lit showroom. The dark runway did not allow buyers and press to fully observe the detail that went into making these clothes.
