Here is a great look at what The Viridi-anne have created for Fall/Winter 2009. Drawn to the chrysalis process of metamorphosis, designer Tomoaki Okaniwa explained that it represents “strength and enormous potential for positive change in uncertain times, an intention to remain discreet and undercover rather than showy and in your face. It represents protection and defense, self-camouflage and mystery. It is difficult to find and therefore rare and unusual. It outwardly resembles dark armor and stillness but within lays softness and intelligent activity.” It is in this vein that Okaniwa instills a rare beauty in his designs that is evident in both the construction and overall finish.
