spring collections, tokyo: gvgv

by Jeremy Danté

an interesting palette drew me into this collection as their seemed to be a set of neon pastels, if there ever were such a thing. classic 50’s references were seen throughout as models walked the runway in cat eyed shades with high waisted, form fitting skirts. as i was initially sucked in through incredible use of color, as the collection progressed i found that the headlining element of this collection was the beautiful use of print. fresh, green botanical prints danced their way through design all over the runway leading the collection to a close as elements of transparent textiles were seen in allowing a modern twist to be contrasted to the classical style referenced that inspired the collection. designed by mug, i love when designers are able to take something old & revamp it- which is a prime example of what happened here. fresh direction & ill execution- love.
