Kyoko Higa

With a psychedelic catwalk show this morning Kyoko Higa managed to wake up a rather jaded Japan Fashion Week.

Into its second week, the Tokyo collections are beginning to wind down but this captivating and cheeky show brought some sunlight to the occasion.

Higa showed some delightful apparel including some summer white blouses with crochet shawls and some street smart cargo pants which got the full house into the swing of things.

The second part of the collection was heavily influenced by 60s psychedelia and an array of Twiggy outfits were introduced. Flower power patterns, sunflower hats and pink and red floral jackets with black minis set the tone for the closing sections. Orange tiger print skirts, psychedelic summer dresses and tiny hot pants brought a lot of fun to this show and the audience was captivated with the sheer playfulness and boldness of the collection.

While not being the most original show in the Japan Fashion Week, it showed that there is a place for impishness and audacity among other more solemn collections.
