spring collections, tokyo: nocturne #22 in c sharp minor op. posth
by Jeremy Danté
in addition to being one of the most interesting names for a collection i’ve encountered in a while, nocturne #22 in C sharp minor op. posth, continued with interesting concepts through style for their spring collection. layering seemed to take the largest presence on the runway for nocturne #22 this season. variations of men’s dress shirts were sculpted into female silhouettes as the garments themselves were made to look unfinished, a decision which actually allowed the clothes to have a stronger presence. from look to look, i was incredibly inspired by the pants in the collection- from the paper waist style to the relaxed fits as well. few looks of menswear also made a cameo during the runway show, which used stripes & lace as design accents for the collection. love the direction they took & their use of black was a clear deviation from what’s expected of spring.
