Set on a pristine white stage in the grounds of the Tokyo Prince Hotel, LyricisM presented an elegant and haunting collection.

To the chimes of distorted Norwegian poetry, sounds of crashing gates and post-war French folk songs, LyricisM’s collection entangled many different influences. Nineteenth century Spanish costume with Matador hats and tired and frilled silhouettes, forties-style gartered stockings, pill-box hats with fur stoles, 30s style dropped waist shifts and chiffon numbers and Edwardian cropped jackets, and floorlength column-shaped skirts.

The collection was challenging in the level of influences it drew upon and in the complexity of the items on show: floor-length bold horizontal striped dresses, delicate monochrome prints, chunky knit puffed sleeve bady-dolls, little red riding hood capes and caped dresses and low-buttoning wrap blazers.

But, the range was far from messy or thrown together. It had a natural fluidity to it, and was thoughtful and thought-provoking.
