Japanese fashion label Dressedundressed opened the fourth day of ongoing Mercedes Benz fashion Week in Tokyo with a minimalistic collection themed as Intelligence for the Spring/Summer 2015 season.

Jointly created by the brand’s designer duo, Takeshi Kitazawa and Emiko Sato, the well-cut line was based on a neutral palette of white, beige, ivory, navy and black shades. The catwalk presentation’s menswear entry included vests, baggy pants, blazers, shirts and long jackets. The featured womenswear pieces were oversized button-down shirts, sleek sleeveless dresses, pants and double-breasted coats.

Nobuhide Koi, the graduate from the Parsons The New School for Design and the creative head behind Corazon del Alma label, showcased a resortwear range based on classic silhouettes. Enhanced with sheer overlays, low-cut backs, transparent fabrics, and asymmetrical ruching and draped details, the line displayed long flowing dresses, sleeveless tops, jumpsuits and wide-legged pants.

The Japanese talent Yurika Ohara and British designer Steven Hall, the founders of the In-Process by Hall Ohara label, gave a 21st century nod to traditional Mexican aesthetics through their S/S range. Titled as Estética, the Mexican arts and folk inspired collection was adorned with jacquard patterns and prints of tropical flowers, leaves, cacti and paint splatters. The vibrant line showed shrunken jackets, minidresses, shorts and shirtdresses.

Tokyo-based womenswear brand Yuki Torii International drew inspiration from 1960s for its latest creations incorporated with casual silhouettes. Enhanced with colourful digital prints and luxe broderie anglaise lace material, the runway parade highlighted flowy silk dresses and some Chanel-inspired skirt and jacket combos.

Japanese brand Alice Auaa’s designer Yasutaka Funakoshi chose to display a dark line, which was comprised of Victorian silk crafted ensembles, burlesque style innerwear and avant-garde asymmetrical pieces paired with elaborate headgears, whereas the father-son design duo Sansai and Jotaro Saito showcased their signature traditional Japanese clothing decorated with traditional prints and post-modern motifs.
