Fashion Week

fur fur Spring 2012

So fur fur was one of our favorites at Tokyo Fashion Week. It reminded us of the first time we went to a Rachel Antonoff presentation and didn’t know what to expect, but left with big smiles on our faces. The collection was totally dreamy. Both the collection and the presentation were based on the concept of improvisation and spontaneity. Basically like the concept of arranging flowers. The flowers are all unique and there is no set formula on how to arrange them, but you look at them and place them almost instinctually next to one another. We were told, that in the spirit of that theme, the models in the show all showed up and chose the garments they wanted to wear from the collection. There were dresses of both white and purple and the girls were seated on chairs on a circular platform around various tables with flowers and miscellaneous objects. They all had elaborate floral headpieces of green and pink, and there was a foggy mist drifting through the room. Rather creepy music kept time for the mesmerizing dance that consisted of the models, sometimes a few, sometimes all, getting up and walking about until they came across an empty chair and gracefully sat down again. It was, I suppose, like a dream one might have after watching The Fall, Alice in Wonderland, and Memoirs of a Geisha one after the other. There was also something very bridal about the white gowns. Don’t you agree?

More collections from Tokyo Fashion Week to come soon!

p.s. We were given an interesting Tokyo fashion insight from Misha who informed us that the style of the fur fur show was that of forest girl. Essentially it consists of rather flowing garments tattered on the edges, as though a girl had been lost in the forest and then wandered around endlessly afterwards. We were rather enamored by the concept : )

We hope that the photos capture the ethereal, dreamlike quality of the actual experience.
