Hailing from Japan, designer Hiroko Koshino has always presented her collections in special ways. Balloon skirts, architectural jackets and puff-sleeved dresses paired with leather gloves were all shown in stark black. Each of the ensembles were topped with felted hats crafted into twisted, modernized shapes. The short-sleeved, calf-skimming dresses took on a persona relevant to missionary garb and with the addition of the odd hats; it was almost as if models disguised as “dark nuns” had taken over the runway.
