Japanese singer Misia wows in a Tomo Koizumi gown.
Designed by the rising Japanese fashion star Tomo Koizumi and worn by singer-songwriter Misia, the dress was a colorful opener to this year’s Tokyo Olympics.
for the designer at New York Fashion Week show. (Staged in her friend Marc Jacobs’s Madison Avenue store as a favor, naturally.) The illustrious guest list for Koizumi’s first show was matched only by the star wattage of those walking the runway, including Gwendoline Christie, Bella Hadid, Joan Smalls, and Emily Ratajkowski; it also earned rave reviews for his unique balance of frivolity, flamboyance, and couture-level craft.
Since then, Koizumi has gone from strength to strength. In 2019, his work was featured as part of the Met’s annual costume exhibition,Notes on Camp,while his most recent collection that appeared earlier this month on the haute couture calendar was live-streamed from an Edo-period castle in Kyoto. Still, there are few moments as sweet—in more ways than one, given the dress’s frothy, candy-colored delights—as seeing your work beamed around the world to represent your home country on the global stage. With Koizumi’s widely-noted reverence for Japanese culture past and present, it’s a delight to see him carving out its future, too.
