Junko Shimada Fall 2011

PARIS, Mar 8, 2011/ FW/ — The venue filled to capacity, the loyal Junko Shimada fans expectant, the Japanese designer did not disappoint as she sent out a sharply tailored collection that is wearable and highly covetable.

Cryptically entitled “From 5 to 7” Junko Shimada dressed the ladies from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM, i.e. right after work and before dinner where she can make a secret rendezvous. Or it could be from Friday to Sunday, the from the 5th day of the week to the 7th… A long weekend, a longer rendezvous.

Sexy, spicy and full of charm, the collection was created using Chantilly lace, suede, gazar, skin wool, tweed and mink, powdered variations with a touch of fluorescents. It is chic and cheeky!
