Conflicting colors and a pastiche of styles, patterns and iconography gave a messy feel to the show and I had a strong feeling that I wasn’t the only one thinking this.

A forgettable womenswear collection was summed up with quilted patterned jackets and gaudy eveningwear that evoked the term “subdued glamour”.

Keita Maruyama Homme faired better, but only just, with obvious parodies of Dior Homme and Hedi Slimane’s latest muse Pete Doherty. Skinny ties and pork-pie hats lightened the mood but couldn’t save this unsatisfactory occasion.
