Noir Kei Ninomiya is one of the most fantastic brands present on Paris Fashion Week schedule. For spring-summer 2020, Kei Ninomiya looked towards nature, creating unbelievable wonders. The models seemed to walk in clouds (made out of tulle), in huge chunks of spiky salt crystal (the material is a mystery) and coats that looked like forest moss creatures. Azuma Makoto’s hats were made of real ferns, palms, and moss and worked as a finely landscaped complement to Ninomiya’s fashion. I really dream of a behind-the-scenes film showing Kei’s design process. Just incredible.
