Before our coverage of Paris Fashion Week folds back into the season at large, we want to mention the Tao Commes des Garcon collection which showed early on in the week. Designer Tao Kurihara studied at Central St. Martins and started her career working for Rei Kawakubo at the Tricot line, before launching Tao in 2005. This season, Kurihara was inspired by "cakes and sweets and decoration" which combined with a secondary inspiration of Eastern European folk costumery, and came out looking like an avant-garde version of our best bohemian beach wear. In the end, a great collection and surely one that will make a resort-timed editorial appearance or two.
