Rebuilt, Punk, Asymmetrical
As Paris Fashion Week begins and Milan Fashion Week ends, Chika Kisada closes out the final day in Italia with her Kaleidoscope Foam collection. The show opened with the first three looks being in white and sheer.
f0fff9Throughout the presentation Kisada reinvents garments and plays with their design indefinitely altering their shape. Recurring aspects of the collection include nets, ruffles, and asymmetrical garments. A standout piece being a tan rebuilt trench coat with the waist belt placed across the chest and short ruffled sleeves.
Most of the collection might prove difficult to fit the wardrobe of most women but if styled correctly they could flourish like the most elegant coat from a mainstream luxury house. These are the types of clothes and looks that require a higher style and fashion IQ. Teal and pink add balance to the overall mature tan, black, and white color palette.
Paid prints and synthetic tech straps make an appearance adding a certain punk aesthetic to the abstract designs. To finish the show, entered a model dressed in a puffy sheer dress, enveloped in ruffles and holding an iPhone, she performs a moving tribal like dance until the rest of the models take their final stroll around the runway and return to the backstage.
