Akira Isogawa treated us to a beautiful presentation at The Box today, proving in his own quiet way that no one does prints and colour in such a dramatic, yet measured way. His signature modern-Oriental aesthetic was executed with panache, making the theatrical wearable and the traditional somehow new. There were two colour stories running concurrently; an all-white, ethereal, bridal-appropriate capsule of gauzy, appliqué laden dresses topped with fantastical tulle head wraps. Then there were the vibrant colour and print displays splayed across fluid silk sheaths and open kimono jackets. Traditional Japanese patterns and blooms mixed with tropical floral prints, topped off by large-scale neck-plates or textural snoods. Together, it was truly a thing of beauty.

  • Colours: Red, white, Schiaparelli pink, canary yellow, sky blue, white and black.
  • Trends: Graphic prints, Tropical prints, texture and Oriental (obviously).
  • Key Looks: Any of the printed kimono dresses and a particularly pretty floral appliqué white dress.
  • Accessories: Geta-esque printed-platform two strap sandals, tulle head wraps, fabric covered head pieces, textural neck-scarves and floral motif neck-plates.
  • Front Row: His loyal client base and the editor pack.
