Tao RTW Fall 2022
Tao Kurihara described her latest collection as an “extravagant mix of textiles”, writing in her show notes that she aimed to “express strength through the mixture of different patterns and textures”. During a mini-show at the Comme des Garçons headquarters in Tokyo, the designer showcased an offering of long, voluminous pieces in floral, gingham, plaid and batik prints combined. The overall look was an eclectic balance of innocent country girl and urban bohemian. Kurihara layered gingham dresses with sheer dresses, floral smocking and jacquard outerwear. Warm, bright shades of red, purple and gold contrasted with bold black accents to balance the soft florals, while embroidery added extra depth. Other textures came in the form of layered ruffles, cable knits, ribbons, tiered lace, and sheepskin trim on puffer jackets. As the show progressed, so did the clothing, becoming more and more experimental. In the latest looks, Kurihara has eschewed color altogether, instead relying on texture to create contrast. Layers of mixed textiles in black, white and ivory came together in tea length, gathered skirts and padded blanket coats.
