Michiko Koshino Spring/Summer 2013

Inspired by the Sahara desert, Michiko was attracted by the resilience of its land and the strength and beauty of the Nobu tribes people. 

Michiko experimented with new shapes fusing together native influences with the uniform and workwear details of travelling explorers, capturing the strength and primal energy of the tribal people within a western workwear identity. 

Colour palette: subtle and muted shades of sand, khaki, grey, black and white.

This is urban street wear where the feminine figure is not forgotten as blouses and jackets cinch in to the waist for a flattering shape.

Embellishments are of the Military style with ribbon medal brooches adorning shirts and shorts.

The print used is an array of uneven faded spots as though the child’s potato paint method was applied.

Key pieces that stood out for me were:
 Gossamer layered white blouse – shorter at the back slide and cinched in at the waist, draped longer and the front and fastened with one garter clip. Worn with grey skinny jeans in the faded spot print

Double zipped biker style jacket - the sleeves unzipped to allow you to change them in to elbow length by buttoning on to the shoulder. 

Marl grey jersey dress – simple t shirt style with a little ruche to flatter the curves.
