Another cool styling execution swept runways at Japan’s fashion week for Spring/Summer 2009 collections. Everlasting Sprout, a line designed by Keiichi Muramatsu and Noriko Seki, showed silhouettes reminiscent of ballerinas, but in hooped crochet, over flimsy slips. Wabi-sabi was at play here: relaxed, over sized separates with baggy pockets in a bleached out palette had a resort meets hippie-mom quality.  white-grey wigs cloned the models and gave the collection a courtly look.  Earlier in the week, Mikio Sakabe’s collection used blond mop top wigs to unite models into an army of uniformity.  Have a look at the wigged out runway.
