Japan obviously being a strong influence, for many designers this season. Traditional shapes, looser silhouettes seen on flowy dresses, sarong pants, pleated culottes and hints of Oriental prints like fire dragon, lotus flower, peony and hibiscus motifs. Miuccia Prada’s interpretation of a Japanese sandal. The Japanese kimono fabrics seen at Dries van Noten and the oriental prints notable at Emilio Pucci. Delicate, feminine, wearable and summer proof.
