The next term (2017 AW) conceived a line of MAKEOVER with a different way of thinking than before. The size feeling when it is released is not decided and it depends on old clothes. until the arrival time also remains undecided until old clothes are found. If clothing and materials are not found, there is a high possibility that we can not be sales. Even if it became unstable production, I made it focusing on something that I would like to make. VIntage clothes are closely related to my making cloings, and we want to challenge production firmly with the concept to handle old clothes. 2017aw also started with a trip of “encounter” looking for old clothes in the concept of military.
I do not know where and what “encounter” of old clothes is. However, it is also how to enjoy old clothes. So I will go to places I do not have anything to buy. Vintage clothing are not limited to the line of “MAKEOVER”, it is a treasure trove of inspiration. “Antique flea market” is a place where things are aligned with various people’s senses, a place where the sense of the person is reflected largely. Such a place is not easy. Whenever I go to the USA I will go to “flea market”. In order to make things, it is necessary to meet new “something”. There is a hint in “things” that are not circulating in modern times than in modern “things”, and we want to make a new one after grasping the past firmly. I was thinking of organizing items of “MAKEOVER” this time carefully for the encounter at that time. So I made a design with “MAKEOVER” at a small military warehouse in a rural town I came across by chance.
だれも入らないような一般立ち入り禁止の専用倉庫。求めいていた古着がたくさんあったわけではないけれど、日本で考えるよりもこの場所で考えたいと何日か通ってスタッフとも仲良くなり、いろいろ意見交換もしながらデザインを考えたので、少しいつもと違う気分で製作しました。2017AWはミリタリーというキーワードの中、”表と裏”ということも強く意識して、本来見えなかった部分にスポットを当てているアイテムが多いです。展示会が終わり、バイヤーの皆さんが気に入ってオーダーをたくさんくれたり、お客さんからどうしてもこれが欲しいと言われたりして、少しだけ後悔していますが(笑)、、、しかし現時点でも「BLACK LINER WITH FOOTED」なんかは、たくさんオーダーもらっいて、現時点では全然古着の数がないため生産は絶望的。まだ期間はあるので少しでも生産ができるようにはしたいと思っていますが、納品や発売がなくても古着だと思ってご理解ください。
A dedicated warehouse where general entry is prohibited such that no one enters. Although I did not have many old clothes I was sought for but I thought about designing at this place rather than thinking in Japan, I got along well with the staff and thought about design while exchanging opinions a lot, so I felt a little different from usual I made it. 2017 AW is a military keyword, there are a lot of items that are spotlighting on the part that was originally invisible, strongly aware that “front and back” is also. Although the buyers finished the exhibition, buyers liked and ordered a lot and ordered from customers that they really wanted this, but I regret a little bit (laugh) ,,, But at the moment “BLACK LINER WITH FOOTED “got a lot of orders, production is hopeless because there are not any old clothes at the moment. There is still a period so I would like to be able to produce even a little, but please understand thinking it is old clothes even if there is no delivery or sale.
Do not know if I can get it, I do not know if I have sizes fit for me, I do not know if I can buy it, so when I find something that meets myself I can be a few times more happy than anything. I think that such feelings would be experienced from this “MAKEOVER” line. I do not even know whether or not it will be released, but look forward to selling it!
