Paris: Tsumori Chisato’s collections are never out of left field – one can expect quirky stripes, layered patterened knits, swingy capes and whimsical dresses. This season was no different, and her capricious use of color-blocking, mixed prints, quirky palettes and fanciful graphics put her signature touch on silk basics and knitwear. But like any designer who has weathered the times through multiple decades, Chisato added distinct updates that kept the clothes timely. Fur-sleeved jackets were on-trend, as were long and languid dresses, midcalf skirts and microshorts; cleaner silhouettes and patchwork put the collection in step with all the midcentury and craft influences this season.
