Japanese fashion designer Tsumori Chisato has unveiled spring-summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection in Paris. The beach holiday collection is in cotton and sequins.
The latest collection of Japanese knitwear queen Chisato include T-shirts with tufts of raffia and sequins, palm-emblazoned knit dresses, parasols and oversized straw hats. A blouse with a cartoon Carmen Miranda worn with a pair of mini bloomers or a stretchy miniskirt also forms a part of the collection.
Chisato, known for her wacky knitwear, began her career with Issey Miyake in 1997. She started her own line in 1990, and in 2003, she took her work to Paris. Today, she has a following in the United States too and her work focuses on prints and bohemian cuteness.
