Tokyo Fashion Week is widely known for its innovative labels and cutting-edge designs. Unlike the refined collections seen in Paris and Milan, Tokyo–based designers aimed for a bolder message for fall ’17 — a mission statement that extended right down to the shoes. We’re highlighting some of the craziest styles to hit the runways.
At AKIKOAOKI, refined trenches were paired with erotic-inspired plastic platforms — talk about a juxtaposition. The mega-platform continued on throughout the week. At Doublet, platform boots featured flame motifs while at Murral, the silhouette was a tad more wearable for every day.
At Growing Pains, the slouch boot — a major trend for fall — was taken to new extremes with a shiny red finish and fringe accents. Theatrical footwear proportions continued at Kisada, which added tulle bows to its sneakers.
D-vec served up clear boots, boldly styled with colorful socks. (For our tips on how to wear that daring trend, click here).
