In an inventive performance piece the models recreated various street observations and constructed a complex story of relationships and chance meetings.

We didn’t know what to expect from today’s collection and designer Mitsushi Yanaihara had plenty of tricks up his sleeve. Male and female models clad in mock bouffant wigs seemed to be a sly and satirical take on today’s perceptions of sophistication.

Tiny bird design t-shirts, unorthodox cuts and angular patterning fused with a rich display of textiles created a multi-layered effect. Men’s Oxford pants and black darts shirts contrasted with Cinderella skirts in numerous shades of blue, strappy shirts and black smock dresses with stinging red vertical stripes.

In a wholly bewildering occasion Nibroll About Street manufactured a bold and memorable collection that plays on modern views of elegance and style.
