circus couture: tsumori chisato fall 2010 rtw

Where do I even begin? So I guess I didn't really pay enough attention to Japan Fashion Week because I discovered the magic of Tsumori Chisato's fall collection just today. You all know by now probably that I'm obsessive over intense colors, prints, textures, layers, and silhouettes. Chisato really just takes it to the next level.

Disregarding the wearability of the collection as a whole, I just have to commend him for elevating my notion of the circus theme as silly and elementary to one now of glamorous frivolity. Incredible bold striped pants in both neutral and vibrantly colored sheer silk, oversized capes creating wondrous silhouettes, layered scarves in solid and prints adding that extra flair to already intensive layers... Feathered dresses, psychedelic and hypnotizing zigzag prints, playful yet elegant side updos all captured in an atmosphere of fairytale fantasy. I can't even imagine how this looks coming down a runway in movement, with the billowing sleeves, trailing trains, and soft flowy fabric, fantastical, mystical, mysterious, charming, & captivating all at once.
