Open black suit jackets revealing sexy black bras, simple tailored gray suits, stern pinstripe suits and black derby-like hats dominated this seductive catwalk show.

The standout piece was a bondage-inspired zipped black waistcoat, fitted shorts and sublime black leather driving gloves. This worked perfectly beside the sombre pleated skirts and sexy white fitted shirts that raised the temperature in the packed tent. The Objetstandard creator infused this performance with a real sexual charge and barely concealed eroticism.

There were also plenty of hipster pants – some with beautifully coloured floral patterns which appears to be a running motif for this years Japanese designers.

Objetstandards show represented a no-nonsense, sexy modern approach to Japanese womenswear that rivals his western counterparts.
