ANGLES VS. VOLUMES
Paris: Choosing an edited lookbook presentation rather than a runway show this season, Limi Feu’s punky aesthetic didn’t suffer from a more low-key setting. Playing to her commercial success in Japan and abroad, Feu’s S/S 13 collection was approachable while maintaining her signature use of volume and graphic patterns. Shredded bondage cutouts, fractured triangle repeats and oversized draped pockets added an angular element to tapered trousers, apron dresses and tunics, while jumpsuits and denim overalls had an unexpected workwear feeling. Relaxed and wearable, Feu’s soft tailoring and streetwear separates maintained a youthful cachet for Spring.—Nina Stotler
