Runway: Tokyo Fashion Week A/W 13/14 – Beautiful People
Words by MPDClick’s Runway Assistant.
Chic tailoring with a 1960′s twist was presented at the Beautiful People show at Tokyo Fashion Week. Read on for our full review.
As the live band played and show goers lounged in leather armchairs, the sleek collection of mens and womenswear consisted of androgynous tailoring, retro details and Warhol-esque polo-neck sweaters. Womenswear looks featured cropped cigarette pants with straight cut blazers, as well as printed tea dresses and 60′s swing coats. Flashes of leather in a cropped trench or full skirt brought a contemporary edge to the evocative looks, which were topped off with ladylike hair bows and patent court shoes.
Menswear looks had a quirky edge with neon duffel coats, printed trousers and black framed spectacles. Polo neck sweaters featured strongly and were mixed with tailoring in tonal shades of grey or chalky white. Menswear looks were styled with white lace up pumps which maintained a contemporary appeal. Stayed tuned to the Trend Journalthis week for more updates on the collections coming out of Tokyo.
