Turning Japanese

October 16, 2012

Japanese influences were prevalent on the runways for next spring, with kimono shapes, and origami treatments leading the way.

Haider Ackermann worked modern versions of Shibori patterns into his signature fluid looks, using traditional kimono details for soft layers.

Dries Van Noten infused Japanese florals with sheer plaids for a grungy take on Japanese chic.

Prada took a spare yet youthful approach to her Harajuku girl, with whimsical blossoms and origami folds on her structured pieces in duchess satin.

Narcisso Rodriguez went streamlined and modern, with traditional textiles offering a nod to Asian culture.
