Here are some photos I took at the Naoshi Sawayanagi S/S 2013 runway show.
This was my favorite show out of the few I attended during fashion week. It took place on top of the Mitsukoshi building in Ginza, and the rain was just pouring down without any sign of relenting. A bunch of photographers were wrapping plastic bags around their cameras for protection. I also caught a glimpse of the models rehearsing their walk while carrying clear plastic umbrellas.
Luckily, the rain decided to let up right at the beginning of the show, and the models were able to walk without having to hold umbrellas.
I absolutely love the colors, textures, and theme of this collection, "...air". Light, flowy fabrics and prettily patterned scarves, the recurrence of white and dark blue. Absolutely gorgeous.
This is a lovely piece, I really like the simplicity and traditional influence.
Such a talented young designer!
It was a pleasure to attend his runway show.
