Akiko Ogawa’s style is futuristic with a romantic twist, pulling inspiration from several themes. One inspiration for fall is the Milky Way galaxy, with sparkling stars in the outreaches of space, another is Maetel, the heroine from sci-fi anime Galaxy Express 999 and Scottish-flair tartan kilts. Ogawa infuses military tailoring and details, as well as volume seen on bustle skirts Ogawa incorporates Swarovski crystals, tweed with flecks of lame, black tulle, curled mohair double-face wool and silk cotton fabrics. The color focus of the collection includes indigo, teal, charcoal and black. The collection includes everything from military jackets, mohair vests and turtlenecks and bow blouses to baby doll and kilt dresses.
