AUSTRALIA RESORT 2019 COLLECTION
by Steff Yotka, Vogue
“Akira Isogawa is celebrating 30 years in business, which might explain the festival-like vibe of his Resort collection.
Bright pastels and ’80s-inspired graphics made up the bulk of the Akira show, a stark departure from his typically subdued collections.
Where it worked best was in the opening looks where models wore thick striped shorts with undone shirting, a sort of masculine-feminine take on Aussie surfer style.
Those layered tulle pieces that completely hide a woman’s shape will be harder to sell.”
