First off, 85% of Japan has some sort of Comme de Garcons element. My question is why they aren’t they showing in Paris?
Second, I can tell they take inspirations from other designers. The Fur Fur Collection had some Sonia Rykiel combined with Harajuku culture. Adorable.
Third, Japan Loves distressed fabrics layered on top of the other. Thank god for Asian construction otherwise we may have some homeless looking models on the runway.

To conclude, Japan deserves more coverage, because we’re missing out on some exciting flair. There are some contenders who stump American designers.
I won’t name names.
