House of Holland, the English brand owned by the Manchester-born designer Henry Holland, staged its debut show displaying a 1970s inspired Spring/Summer 2015 collection at the just held edition of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo.

Replete with bold vibrant floral prints and patterns, the fun colourful range showcased an array of pleated dresses, midi skirts, blouses and floral pant suits.

The Japanese fashion brand Né-Net’s designer Kazuaki Takashima featured a countryside-influenced collection comprised of re-interpreted traditional clothes of Japan. The line offered indigo pants, Kimono-style jackets with bear, rabbit, bird and monkey prints, oversize women’s sweaters and fleece sweatshirts adorned with motifs of the rising sun and the nation’s famous peak Mount Fuji.

Drawing inspiration from the 1970s romantic drama film A Swedish Love Story, Koji Udo, the creative head behind Factotum label, created his latest menswear collection. Based on a mix palette of pale, neutral tones and strong primary colours, the 3-D, camouflage and graphic print decorated line included slim pants, textured knits, bandannas, button-down shirts, satin jacquard drawstring-waist trousers, blazers, coats black leather moto jackets, striped sweatpants and T-shirts emblazoned with slogans like ‘hope and despair,’ ‘love and hate’ and ‘high and low.’

Takeshi Osumi and Yuichi Yoshii, the designer duo behind Mr. Gentleman, showed their second solo Toyo Fashion Week runway collection. Replete with incongruous styles, detailing and silhouettes, the range featured a wide variety of post modern clothing, such as pastel suits, outerwear and hooded vests, using techniques, materials and colours that are specific to certain geographical regions like Italy, Mexico, France and New York.
