Known for its chic Japanese fusion style, 4 Corners of a Circle is helmed by designer Natsuko Kanno who is deeply inspired by the cultural traditions of her homeland, weaves Japanese elements into her designs
This is Kanno’s third season bringing 4 Corners of a Circle to the runways during New York’s Fashion Week. On the runway for Spring 2013, romance is in the air, yet the sweetness is subtle, juxtaposed with an architectural edge.
Kanno’s collection reflects this ethereal effect with her original galaxy prints of floating stars, seen in various dimensions, floating on sheer flamingo pink menswear shirts, chic wide-cuffed shorts, slate gray car coats, and silk hakama shorts in bright cobalt blue.
Kanno had fun playing with fabrics this season for an effortlessly chic effect. A mossy waffle mesh kimono jacket flows over a two-tone knit and silk tank, paired with canary yellow mesh leather short shorts.
The oversized cream wide lapel trench vest is worn over a sheer menswear-inspired blouse with textured galaxy shorts. Natsuko Kanno’s signature silk crepe hakama pants in slate gray, flow beautifully on the body with a sexy deconstructed backless sky blue kimono blouse.
