The Tome Fall/Winter 2013 collection turned heads as it took to the runway stage at New York fashion Week. The label's latest lookbook marks a contemporary take on classic Japanese silhouettes that marry past and present style references.

Channeling modern-day Geishas, models sport an array of exaggerated volumes and simplistic silhouettes that pay homage to traditional Japanese robe garments. Tome design duo Ramon Martin and Ryan Lobo's latest womenswear collection takes inspiration from the wardrobe of legendary American painter Georgia O'Keeffe who was known for her distinctive style sense.

Recognized for her various painted artworks, O'Keeffe's abstracted still life pieces are referenced and mirrored in this collection's exploration of cocoon shapes and delicately demure design details. Stats for Contemporary Geisha Couture Trending: Older & Warm
