Not for the light hearted is the latest instalment to Eri Utsugi’s amazing portfolio. Mercibeaucoup Spring Summer 2011 gives us a blast of colour and mad shapes. It is said that Eri is inspired by Manga and without having read that somewhere I think I would have known as much. For Eri I would say this is one of the more laid back collections as she is known for outlandish pieces such as candy floss wigs, big clown shoes. Most if not all of her collections carry a colourful flamboyance that I find exciting, always making me hungry for what she will pull out next!
I can imagine a lot of people saying no to this collection but I will say this, “take elements and make them your own”.
