Hiroko Koshino “Coloré” JFW SS 2011 Collection

The first collection I saw this Japan Fashion Week was Hiroko Koshino’s. The doyenne of Japanese fashion never disappoints, although this season’s show struck some of the same notes as her spring/summer collection from last year. There were well-cut day dresses and evening dresses with overdrawing in india ink, and the finale included a lineup of intricately designed couture gowns. This time the backdrop was a large painting that nicely set off many colorful (cf. the title of the collection) pieces that poured in after the restrained trickle of monochrome ones.
