Even sushi inspired Grace Rihan in her new collection of ready-to-wear entitled "Wink to Japan".Rihan explained the seamless continuity from traditional modes of dress to modern-day street style in Japan. Women would wear designer kimonos, for example, to a design exhibition alongside friends in contemporary garments like sherwal pants or loose-hanging drop-waist dresses. Rihan doesn't like boxes.Japanese inspiration is most recognizable in the collection's kimono-inspired pieces: a top with starchy angular shoulders that wraps and ties at the waist; a loose silk kimono of Rihan's imagination cut into hundreds of half-moons; and a loose black wrap dress. Rihan has already sold pieces from her line of black kimono jackets, which feature a strip of Japanese silk taken from real kimonos. In another piece, for example, the coat arms can unbutton to become deep kimono sleeves.In 2012, Rihan put out a summery collection of neutral-toned jersey gilets, sherwal and off-the-shoulder T-shirts inspired by traditional Arab garb.Rihan has also worked with Japanese textiles in the past.
