what a sad news! tao kurihara, one of rei kawakubo's protege, is closing her own label tao, 6 years after she debiuted in paris (for aw2005). her label has been produced by comme des garcons. she will now focuse on comme's tricot line.
i think my most fav tao collections would be her ss2006 (handkerchiefs) and aw2008.
here some pictures from her ss2007 collection when she used paper trips to make some beautiful dresses.
