London Fashion Week S/S 2012 Catwalk Review: Blow Presents Shinsuke Mitsuoka

Shinsuke Mitsuoka's S/S 2012 collection Liberum Arbitrium was showcased as part of Blow Presents at LSO St. Luke's on Sunday 18th September 2011.

Shinsuke Mitsuoka‘s dark vision was named Liberum Arbitrium, meaning Free Will. A graduate of Nottingham Trent University, Shinsuke Mitsuoka used large quantities of zips donated by YKK to create a very black collection. A gothic feel was achieved by asymmetrical draping and sheer fabrics which laddered across chests to leave bosoms semi-exposed, or encased forearms to leave shoulders bare, but my favourite parts were the sculpted pieces that bookmarked the show.

First out came a high collared coat dress that covered the face to above the nose, leaving the eyes above to glare down at the catwalk in a modern approximation of a fearsome amazonian warrior. A skirted pelmet splayed out to the sides to create a striking silhouette with armoured legs were exposed at the front and back.

At the end of the collection a bold shouldered dress featured zipped panels sweeping up the front and sides, but the denouement was a fantastic showpiece: zips pronouncing a widened handkerchief skirt which was topped by a gauzy sheer knit top veiling the face up to the eyes.
