I just realized what I've been missing in my closet. Beautiful deep blue pieces. Akiko Ogawa's Fall 2009 Collection is absolutely lovely. The color choices are perfect- black, dark blue, concrete, mauve, and ivory. I love her use of fur for texture, draping for fluid lines, sharp angles for futurism (a la Rick Owens), and strong shoulders for that confident look. The collection is feminine and elegant but with a slight edge. (Note to self: Add blue to wardrobe.)
BTW, Akiko's fall runway boots were the inspiration for Jeffrey Campbell's Clinic wedges and Madness boots. Here's Chanel Iman wearing Akiko's creation.
