Friday 25th Feb: Kokon To Zai AW11
Irrespective of trends and seasons - I need this Kokon To Zai collection in my wardrobe forever. All the way from the stripey shoes, optical panelled leggings, asymmetric patchwork fin dresses, chunky warrior accessories, ball bangles and squiggle shape afro combs. It was a mash up of Oskar Schlemmer sculptural proportions, Memphis furniture graphic patterns with a dash of 80's Disney Mickey Mouse Club thrown in for good measure. For the first time, designer Koji Maruyama came to London to walk out for the encore to wave alongside Marjan Pejoski. Congratulations - I am in LOVE and desperate to try some of it on!
