White has never looked so complex.
Designer Yoshiyuki Miyamae gave the title ‘wearing light’, and shifts in colour seemed to represent sunrise and the dark of moonlight.
The folds, pleats, complex cut and origami shapes gave texture to all-white looks.
Stand out look:
The next level of white shirt: slightly pulled at the waist, allowing the shoulders and sleeves to cascade out in a series of overlapping pleats and folds.
The sun set in ombre stripes of red, orange and white, shifting to a harsher morning blue light and the colour-mash of day in crisscrossing strips of rainbow. All printed on the lightest of fabrics.
The perforated lines of holes in the opening pieces gave the impression of pleats, and allowed the fabric to crisply fold – like fold-and-tear paper.
A live soundtrack by Japanese musician Ei Wada, who transformed television screens into percussion instruments, using the light and electrostatic emitted to create sound.
Models walked with a slight smile, unnerving for show goers used to poker faces – not as brash as the Rick Owens spectacle, but change is a-foot in Paris.
A monochrome grid pattern bag, and white square-perforated cuff emulated the subtle grid pattern in city-shorts and jacket, created with tiny ridged folds.
Subtle lift at the crown and the absence of bands or grips transformed an every day ponytail into a sophisticated mohican.
