Modern-day pocahontas

I like the shapes, I like the brown/camel/black color scheme, and I absolutely love the combination of different textures (something I feel Toga excels at and keeps improving on with every season) --leather, fringe, thick knit and I think I see some velvet in there as well. Maybe the overall impression is a bit Prada meets Martin Margiela but I'm not complaining. Yasuko Furuta is doing great things for Japanese fashion and that's more than I can say for a lot of the uninspired imitative designers here.

I love Toga. Furuta is maturing her work in a wonderful way.
