From simple yet elegant grey pieces to shimmering sequin gowns; for SS16 Rohmir and the creative director Olga Roh displays Japanese culture with Cherry Blossom Dream. Taking aspects from Asian culture, this collection is bursting with Japanese references from obi belts to cropped kimono sleeves.

The first half of the collection is understated with silk patterned garments, granddad collared shirtdress and tailored jackets. This seems to show the beautiful craftsmanship yet humbleness of traditional Japan. With some models, stopping turning to one another, bowing to each other and handing over a package come clutch. The second half of the collection comes with bright coloured evening dresses in acid yellow, green and peach and it seems as though we have reached a modern place in Japan; with full length gowns draped it glitter and sparkle.

Finer details come from the charming cherry blossom embellishments, which adorn evening coats and pencil skirts. This SS16 collection has taken us on a tour of Japan showing the skills from years of artistry, updated with western silhouettes.
