Ohal Ando’s lessthan* label triumphed at Japan Fashion Week today. Ando presented his own line in conjunction with new brand rin – of which he is head designer.

lessthan* was a highlight of last season’s fashion week and his new collection showed a more polished and finished touch.

Sleeveless dresses with simple ornamentation such as ties round the waist and crop double breasted jackets opened the womenswear. Pleated skirts and beautifully patterned dresses in black and white along with tiny aprons wrapped it up for the ladies.

The funky menswear laden with slogans, cobweb tartan design and biker looks (red leather jackets and thin pants) contrasted well with simple red sweaters and a positive freshness.

The onstage bands, niumun and tegwon – think Mogwai meets didgeridoos, rocked the show and were an added delight in what was a memorable collection.
