LOCATION:WEST SHINJUKU, BUNKA FASHION COLLEGE PROMENADE
THEME: 膨らむ華麗さ -A blanket of cherry blossoms-
Viktoriya Veselova hails from Russia but she has already been racking up the accolades while studying in Tokyo at the Bunka Fashion Graduate University (BFGU). This particular piece features her current penchant for yarn and hand-printed wool with mesh underneath to hold it all together. The soft, voluminous sleeves were a ringer for the blanket of fluffy cherry blossoms that decorated the sky like cotton candy. And with the weather always in flux at this time, a little weight with room to breathe made this a far more logical thing to wear than it first appears. But more than anything, even at the palest pink, this coat is all power and no fluff.
