NIPPON STYLE:
"Brand without a Designer" KIRA, Creative Curator

KIRA, the main figure behind the enigmatic brand "L", links talented designers and craftsmen nationwide to create original fashion goods. "L" has no official designers. Instead KIRA, who worked in apparel branding, matches Japan's devoted craftsmen with ideal designers around Japan to develop goods.

  • Out of these unions come innovative items that match current lifestyles, but also are durable due to being carefully crafted. While handsome, most works place function over design. A trendy camouflage print knit is dyed using a traditional stencil technique called chusen. A jacket is made of washi paper. KIRA explores using refined traditional techniques and materials for casual and contemporary designs to reach a younger audience. We follow the entrepreneur as he meets with collaborators and craftspeople to discuss new products.
