NIPPON STYLE:
Designer personifies Tokyo fashion potential
FACETASM Designer Hiromichi Ochiai

Hiromichi Ochiai, the designer of FACETASM, is now creating a buzz as a designer with "the most distinctively Tokyo style". The way he combines patterned fabric designed with a variety of motifs together with unconventional gender-free forms is almost magical; it's almost as if he was a disc jockey. His creative concept is "expressing the air of Tokyo in a free and fun way". He has the advantages of his original patterned prints made with inkjet printers, and his artful layering style often referred to as the "super-layered" look.

  • We follow the creation of Ochiai's latest collection, which is put to the test as everyone focuses on the designs by one of the most influential figures in the Tokyo Collection.
  • CATWALK TRENDS:
    2014-15 Autumn / Winter Tokyo Collection

  • TOKYO BUZZ:
    Skirts for spring!

    This week, we look into some skirts that are hot this spring. We take up the cute circular skirts, which make full circle when they're laid out, as well as mid-calf-length skirts, which create an air of relaxed femininity.
