60s white hot pants, pale chemises and beautifully ornate silver sequins caught the eye. Billowy tops and a quasi-hippie feel united with high-waisted shorts and photo-print tops and t-shirts. Stark black and white photos and collages of urban landscapes impressed as stark and cool images/patterns for next summer.

The 60s inspired collection was perfectly complimented by a 60s rock and roll soundtrack and the show looked elegant and simple. Shirahama has many admirers in the fashion industry and her latest designs demonstrated gentleness and urbane aesthetics.
