SOUTHWESTERN QUIRK
Paris: Among all the seriousness of Paris fashion week, Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato can always be counted on to add a bit of freewheeling whimsy to the mix. Still mad for print and pattern, Chisato chose a well-worn theme for Spring, channeling the American southwest into her palette and motifs. But where others default to Native American repeats and turquoise jewelry, she chose a kookier path of illustrated watercolor cow skulls and mélange knit tee pee graphics. More subtle were details like ruffled edging in sunset ombré, while classic cowboy shirts were completely reinvented as sporty cropped jackets. Although Chisato didn’t break new ground for Spring, her outlook on this trendy inspiration was refreshingly fun and idiosyncratic.—Nina Stotler
