Sure, shown together the Tsumori Chisato aesthetic can look like a magpie catastrophe, but dilute this collection with a "regular" coif and basics like black pants or a nice white tee-shirt elsewhere, and you've got that Chisato magic ready to turn you into a fashion superstar--we love the colors, we love the shapes, we love the insanity of it all. We like designers like Chisato and, say, Basso & Brooke, who show that dressing like a left of center, fashion kid doesn't necessarily mean ridding your closet of color in some Rad Hourani or Martin Margiela manner. Chisato gives credence to the claim that one can only truly be fashion forward with a little daring color or intense imagery. Chisato always feels so seventies and so the designer will probably never hear a bad word from us. Disco, after all, never goes out of style. We can't wait to see how Surface to Air puts together the Spring 09 advertisements. We think last Spring might be hard to beat.
