Naoki Takizawa Spring 2008
According to Naoki Takizawa’s mission statement for his first show “my collection will be simple and rational with playful details”. The former Issey Miyake artistic director and designer seems to be saying one thing but showing another for his first collection which looked like a third collection. Nothing looked very simple which would be a good way to enter his first fashion collection under his own name into the world of fashion. Copper colored grommets and industrial zippers were incorporated into quite a few of his pieces, which at times looked a little over used for a first collection. We did like his silk little black dress, but his hard to grasp collection, for a first try might be a little to much for buyers to wrap their budgets around.
