Designer Tao Kurihara presented tricot COMME des GARCONS’s 2015 SS collection under the theme “lightweight and natural textures expressing a dry summer.”
In contrast to the designs, the models wore makeup that made their skin look wet, as if they were sweating. The cool and dry clothes presented for the collection are ideal for spending summer in Japan, where extreme heat is frequent.
Cotton-linen chambray in ecru color and gauze-like textiles created a natural feel. A black dress made with ramie is adorned with prints of lace. A floral print see-through set-up made with organdy, gingham checks, crocheted lace and other details bringing out the grace of simple designs were presented. Straw hats resembling chef's hats and romantic flares on the bustline served as accents. Ecru, gray, mocha, black and other calm colors were seen throughout the collection.
