Tokyo Fashion Week F/W 2017

Asian culture offers a style that is like nothing else and Tokyo tends to be vanguard, embracing and combining westernized style with its own heritage and fast paced culture. Runways, simultaneously innovative and classic, present with precise tailoring and clean lines in even the quirkiest of collections.

My favorite collection was from Yuki Torii International. It was a very chic sportswear line for women that just had such a definitive, luxurious feminine appeal.

Dressed Undressed gave a nod to business attire and casual wear, weaving the two together as if they were one in the same.

The simple, intricate style from Akiko Aoki really caught my attention with its softer color palette.

Viviano Sue is one of the popular avant garde collections, and while I wouldn’t necessarily wear the exact outfit, some of the pieces were really nice.

Lala Love had a pretty unusual collection complete with safety pins on the models mouths. The line stayed trendy with its colorful gingham print and bow wedges, but the presentation was a little rough.

Cote der Mer Menswear line was aggressive. The line had an deconstructed expression, with the acid wash and even a reflective safety vest.

Tokyo Fashion Week definitely delivered on rule-breaking style that still had an amazing quality that could really set a standard for the fashion industry. Even in the most anti fashion of runways, clothing is still speaking volumes and looks are pulled together where they normally wouldn’t be. Some might say is has grown stale, but it would appear to be vibrant as ever.
