Top 5 for Spring - # 2

Jun Takahashi made what I considered his best collection yet. Bringing together masculine tailoring with acid green, deep navy and violet in very spring-appropriate lightweight silks and floaty chiffons is a difficult enough task to take on. But Takahashi went one step further and imbued the collection with a sweetly gothic sensibility, with sly satin skulls used on everything from trims to hems to entire coats. Particulary gorgeous examples include the chartreuse baby-doll dress and black shirtdress at left.
