{Tokyo Fashion Week} Hanae Mori SS16: East Meets West in the Great Lakes

Japanese Designer Yu Amatsu looked to the Great Lakes in the American Midwest as inspiration for the Hanae Mori S/S16 RTW collection. The show opened with sheer white chiffon looks over nude bodysuits, floating like water over their bodies. A small collection of two-tone dresses evoked images of skylines over water with white, navy, pink and grey in tiered, flowing ruffles. White piqued crepe overlaid dupioni silk oversized silhouettes, creating a frost effect.

The final looks were a review of both classic and modern silhouettes in print. A striped abstract ice-like print of giant shards from Swarovski crystals was a stunner on a peplum over bermuda shorts as well as a more classic A-line. But the showstoppers were the oversized print of pink lady slippers on sheer, breezy silhouettes outlined in long fringe.
