NIPPON STYLE:
Expanding Fashion
FORM ON WORDS Designer Daigo Takeuchi

This week, we feature FORM ON WORDS, a group of creators of unique clothing. Its members have pursued creation of stories between clothes and people who wear them. They have adopted a one-of-a-kind remake-order system, which is to tear apart vintage materials and redesign them to make new clothes. An exhibition of creations attempting to innovate the existing fashion expressions was held in May. During the exhibition, the group held a fashion show titled "Time for trial fitting", which presented clothes made out of vintage materials collected from local people.

  • The show expressed "encounters" between clothes, created from vintage materials based on their owners' stories, and third-party visitors to the exhibition. We followed the group's preparations for the show to witness the births of new designs and meetings between people and fashion.

  • TOKYO BUZZ:
    Steampunk!

    Antique-style clothes with influences from the 19th century, coupled with mechanical accessories made of leather and gear wheels. More and more people are being attracted to the world of steampunk, which combines science fiction with the era of the Industrial Revolution. Is this a new trend that follows the Lolita fashion and kawaii items? Is it different from cosplay? We explore its appeal.
