Shakuhachi was the show that never ended! Look after look paraded down the runway to a foot stomping beat, making for a collection of gigantuan proportions. Starting things off softly, the first look was pretty-in-peach silk as worn by the statuesque Julia Nobis. Then things got punchy courtesy of bright colour blocked peices in modern shapes with op-art inspired cut outs. Turquoise, candy cane pink and lemon were spliced with nude, black and white to graphic effect. Patent belts interwoven into waistlines provided polish, whilst side splits kept things carefree. Things then got glitzy with heavy handed embellishment in silver and pewter, adding glamour to the monochrome scarf-printed, sheer chiffon pieces. From light and airy, to test-pattern perfect, to after dark armoury: Shakuhachi did it all.
