NYFW – 4 Corners of a Circle Spring 2013 Collection Sketches

For Spring 2013, emerging womenswear collection, 4 Corners of a Circle, designed by Natsuko Kanno looks to Tanabata, the Japanese star festival, a powerful love story of ancient deities, for the NYFW presentation of their signature brand of chic Japanese fusion.

“For Spring 2013, romance is in the air, yet the sweetness is subtle, juxtaposed with an architectural edge. Kanno’s collection reflects this ethereal effect with her original galaxy prints of floating stars, seen in various dimensions, floating on sheer flamingo pink menswear shirts, chic wide-cuffed shorts, slate gray car coats, and silk hakama shorts in bright cobalt blue. Kanno had fun playing with fabrics this season for an effortlessly chic effect. A mossy waffle mesh kimono jacket flows over a two-tone knit and silk tank, paired with canary yellow mesh leather short shorts. The oversized cream wide lapel trench vest is worn over a sheer menswear-inspired blouse with textured galaxy shorts. Natsuko Kanno’s signature silk crepe hakama pants in slate gray, flow beautifully on the body with a sexy deconstructed backless sky blue kimono blouse.” 

With beauty by Shiseido and bold jewelry by Christine J. Brandt created from exotic hardwood and gemstone crystals, and a live classical music performance, show attendees will be transported to Natsuko Kanno’s unique slice of Japan.
