Adeam RTW Spring 2015

By WWD

For spring, creative director Hanako Maeda looked at Yves Klein’s “Anthropometry” paintings — blue imprints of models’ bodies on white sheets of paper. The inspiration translated not only in the artsy print decorating the cropped Neoprene top and matching skirt that opened the show but also into less literal interpretations of the theme.

In particular, the dynamics of Klein’s art was echoed in flowing plissé panels and ruffles that added movement to feminine dresses worked in technical and knitted fabrics, which sometimes turned a bit too elaborate.

Keeping the silhouettes simple, Maeda scored her best results with a range of plissé knit pieces, including a straight-lined blue number embellished with cutouts on the shoulders and graphic, neon-orange details.
