Fashion Weeks: LA & Tokyo S/S 2010

| Sunday November 1, 2009 Leave a comment
The Ready-To-Wear Spring/Summer 2010 Fashion Weeks of Los Angeles and Tokyo fell in line with their European and East Coast counterparts for basic trends.  Leave it to Hollywood and the Far East to put their own stamp on the latest collections, proving the versatility of the season's vogue.

Kevan Hall, Matohu, Skin Graft, Araisara

Stark contrasts of brilliant white and jet black were interspersed with flowing grays.  The classic wearability of the palette allowed some (not so) risk taking into cultural fashion, such as the traditional Japanese silhouettes shown by Matohu. 

Akira Nada, Fernanda Carneiro, Skin Graft

Satins and leathers brought sheen to otherwise casual looks, echoing metallics seen across many collections.  LA's Skin Graft claimed inspiration from Amelia Earhart and Joan of Arc, fusing strength and femininity.

Araisara, Kevan Hall, Matohu, Tiny Dinosaur

Gorgeous textiles and flowing silhouettes proved comfort and style to be not mutually exclusive.  Kevan Hall's luscious evening gowns were the talk of LA fashion bloggers.

JazzKatze, Tiny Dinosaur, Skin Graft

Between the overarching black & white theme we saw plenty of punchy colour.  Tokyo's Tiny Dinosaur showed a stunning red trench in an otherwise overly safe collection.

JazzKatze, Krys-n-Jack, Phong Hong, Skin Graft

LA's West Coast vibe came out in gladiatrix form with Krys-n-Jack's strangely appealing leathers and metal sheeting.  Phong Hong's good girl/bad girl collection was a study in contrasts, but the true showstopper was Skin Graft's gothic wedding gown, proving the devil was not in this detail.
