SPRING COLLECTIONS, TOKYO: FACETASM
by Jeremy Danté
a combined runway show of men’s & womenswear, the SS12 collection presented by facestasm was another that showcased the forward approach of fashion that beams from japan. overall, this was a stunning collection or modern style with beautifully conceptualized aspects of beauty, through hair to make-up being seen. a whirlwind of floral prints, stripes & an array of silhouettes were presented as models walked the runway in bold toned footwear, chainsaws, sunglasses & larger than life hair. from the menswear pieces to the womenswear- there was a very clear vision that was flipped from masculine to feminine perfectly. one of my favorite collections of the spring season; it was unconventional, but still commercial enough to appeal to a global market. i loved the seemingly remixed business attire from the collection which seen blazers become vests & also loved the use of leather. most charming was the use of floral print & the chainsaws were completely unexpeceted. strong overall vision for this collection.
