VANTAN TOKYO – NEW YORK F/W 2012 FASHION SHOW
The Vantan Tokyo show highlights four up and coming design students from the Vantan Design Institute in Japan. This year it showcased Yuya Kubohara, Cheryl Chee, MI-S by Masato Miyata, and Swanzi by Anki. Kubohara mixed bold, graphic prints in a cacophony of oranges, browns, and blues. Cheryl Chee presented menswear inspired looks with lots of tailored and perfectly deconstructed layers all done in black. MI-S focused on traditional Japanese paper and prints, layering sheer, neon colors over loosely inked designs on traditional menswear garments. Finally, Swanzi showed fluttering, airy silhouettes contrasting blues and blacks in looks that mixed modern sportswear with vintage construction.
