Paris: Limi Feu’s work often arrives through a rock and roll filter, inspired by her musical tastes and dissection of associated subcultures. Rockabilly is the chosen genre for Spring, an exploration which produced more feminine silhouettes than usual, including nipped waist dresses and pencil skirts. That said, Feu’s native Japanese aesthetic remained, adding intellectual edge through lace skirts layered over trousers, oversized, deconstructed white blouses paired with fluid, wide-legged pants and two-tone, surrealist cocktail sheaths. Completed with creepers, quiffs and red lips, Limi Feu allowed herself a fun kickoff to the season, an attitude her fans will welcome.—Nina Stotler
