Close your eyes. All you hear can hear are the birds chirping, water dripping in the background and the sounds of leaves fluttering through the air. Now, open your eyes. You see the rays of light going through the trees. See yourself in the forest, the silhouette of the trees in the background. This was the setting for the Hiroko Koshino AW15-16 Collection.

You have been placed in a different world. The next thing you know, the fog beneath your feet starts to dissipate and from the trees in the background a shadow appears slowly making its way into the runway. The silhouette appears with fawn ears and continues making its way out of the shadow into the light.


From the enchanted forest, mystical creatures appear. The pointy ears and slender silhouette walks slowly as if floating through the mist. Eyes that follow you as a predator in the night become the owl. This was the introduction of the collection the first piece was an embellished shirt with encrusted stones and sequins made the outline of the owl face protruding and gave it a three dimensional look.


The collection was a sure dazzle but not a disappointing one, the dresses flowed gracefully with an opulence look to them on the models.



Peacock like, the model walked down with this dress in prints of lime green, turquoise, ocean blue and salmon.



Like a queen of the forest, the mystical creature transforms itself into a nature deity in charge of the forces of nature and in tune with the animal kingdom. Mother goddess, mother nature.

A futuristic cape, middle cut-out section in color band blue/maroon paired down with a stardust shiny legging pants and gold pointy flats.



Another futuristic ensemble front zipper closure below the knee dress in black tone as the canvas for the gold and grey embroidery work.


A la Red Ridding hood-Like inspired on the children’s book, the hooded cape in tones of Red and Maroon made its appearance during the collection. With blue as an accent color we could observe the furry details in the hood as a resemblance of a fox or wolf. Next, we see an oversized lapel coat flowing to the knee, with distinctive turquoise edging and elk embroidery.


As a Lioness the model walks the runway with ferociousness and intensity in her eyes.


A doe, Shades of Pink and magenta make this coat a perfect accessory for Autum/Winter blues.



Green and Purple dream with a sand tone highlighting the ensembles make a perfect harmony in the forest. Asymmetrical cut top allows the arms free, paired down with a above the knee black skirt.





A punk alternative edgy touch was available in this collection. Perhaps, not your cup of tea but one has to admire the variety of the textiles and elements used. The safety pins were a nice touch to bring the overall aesthetic of the line.


A color play, tones to create a geometrical pattern with your wardrobe.


Lines and Plaid. As we mentioned in other collections, Plaid play an important trend for AW15-16.


We can see how the coats make use of this resourceful material.


A brand that has more intricacies that a thriller plot, the collection kept us on our toes, every time we thought we seen it all, there was yet another model walking in a different style. Overall, the collection was cohesive in the color palette and textures.


The textiles were varied, from synthetic fur, jersey like material and wool to a shiny cosmos of pants and leggings. The collection was far from boring, it was something unexpected and very creative.
