NIPPON STYLE:
"Cool Japanese Fashion and Goods Sweep Europe!"

We focus on 2 events this fall in Paris and Milan that highlight the high quality and wealth of Japanese fashion. And we meet 2 representatives of small Japanese manufacturers that got recognition in the European fashion market with their innovative production techniques.

  • Vintage Feel Clothing goes to Paris: Yutaka Goto (REMI RELIEF designer)

    From August 30 through October 18, a Japanese exhibition was held at the venerable Paris department store, Le Bon Marche. It featured the latest in Japanese fashion, food, art and lifestyle goods. BEAMS, a concept store that is hugely popular among hipsters back home, dispatched select items made in Japan. Some were from REMI RELIEF, a brand led by designer Yutaka Goto who makes original casual wear with a worn-feel at the company's own factory in Okayama Prefecture.
  • Upscale Fleecy Knit Fabric hits Milan: Tomohiro Yamashita (Vice President of A-Girl's)

    From September 9 through 11, Milano Unica, an international textile exhibition was held in Italy. The prestigious tradeshow, which attracts more than 400 participants, had been closed to companies outside of the EU. This year, the Japan Pavilion with 29 Japanese companies took part for the first time. The program focuses on participating company A-Girl's, which is a Wakayama-based knit manufacturer with a history of more than 75 years. Armed with fleecy fabric knitted by a special loop-wheel machine, Vice President Tomohiro Yamashita presented deluxe knitted mohair and cashmere fabric.
