Drawing inspiration from the natural world, designer Yasuko Furuta found beauty in the chaotic and built a collection with motifs representing mitochondria, paramecium and bacteria. Razor sharp tailored trousers, slashed to the calf to reveal glam-rock inspired glitter boots and paired with ‘borrowed from the boys’ shirting defined her eclectic mix. What makes TOGA’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection (and Furuta’s second-ever runway appearance) one of WYLDE’s favourites is how Furuta cleverly blends romantic dresses made of georgette and tulle, fur-patchwork on pockets and sleeves with smart, tailored numbers. Of course, she wasn’t the only designer to include fur into the lineup, but we love how she went for bold add-ons rather than allover looks.
