@ VOL 160 ON OCT 19, 2018

“Matohu” is a women’s clothing brand based in Omotesando. However, the brand does just not represent clothing. This time we will take a peek into Hiroyuki and Makiko’s beautiful works, and how they bring Japanese culture and history into fashion and design.

表参道に直営店を構える『まとふ』。ブランド名のように、日本らしさを"まとう"ような、繊細で美しい作品の紹介とともに、デザインを固有の文化や歴史から学び、ファッションの世界に展開する方法を語ってもらいます。
