Chika Ito designs highly futuristic geometric wear, focusing on the structural aspects of her pieces. The garments are constructed from chiffons and silks, the bodices built up with heavier fabrics. Ito favors a neutral-centric color palette, frequenting uses of beige and whites. In between the monotonous looks are frocks with splashes of pastel purple, pink and royal blue. The combination of drop-crotch pants and highly feminine detailing on the dresses hints at the Japanese roots of the design.

Chika Ito focuses her design methodology in color and a sugary sweet appeal. The innocence of the apparel borrows from vintage girl's dresses and internationally recognized signs of girlishness, such as ruffles and bows. The contemporary design is wearable and adorable.
