HOT CHILD IN THE CITY
New York:­­ A cityscape drawn in Tsumori Chisato’s quirky hand appeared as a backdrop for her Pre-Fall collection and as a print for various separates. It seemed she had an urban theme in mind this season. Another print featured cartoonish figures hanging out in apartments, which connected to the idea of being a city dweller. Chisato also threw in a few nautical motifs, some cheeky trompe l’oeil, and an 80s-inspired medallion print for good measure. As for the garments themselves, many were cut in a tent silhouette, Chisato’s favorite shape. There were also some sweet blouses and a handful of smart pencil skirts that looked new. Striped knits recalled early Sonia Rykiel with their playful bright tones. One has always been able to depend on Chisato to deliver a charming collection with a sense of humor, and she did not disappoint this season. –Joanna Manganaro
