Good evening. This is Ikeda.
I had a dream since last year to take some time off and go to the Yves Klein exhibition held at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa.
However, perhaps because I missed the timing, or because I didn't have the time, or because I couldn't raise the money to go, that dream was short-lived.
There are all three reasons why I couldn't go.
I really wanted to go, so I have some regrets.
Maybe I should read a collection of your works for fun.
It's been half a year since we opened, and I feel like I'm gradually becoming more relaxed in various aspects, so I'm planning to take a little vacation around Golden Week.
My nephews and nieces are coming back home and I'm planning to invite them, so I thought I'd be a great uncle if I could do the same for them.
However, I can't give up on my dream of traveling alone, so this is a problem.
I want to be a good uncle or travel alone, but I can't help but feel like I can see a future where both of my dreams will be fleeting and scattered.
I would like to make it so that you can't see the future like Shanks' murder.
Today I would like to introduce YASHIKI's Sakuraame Knit as I encourage myself that it is more fun to have dreams, even if they are fleeting and dissipate.
Rest assured, this is not a fleeting item in a negative sense.
As always, let's start with the overall image.
``Sakura-ame'' means that the drizzling rain in spring scatters cherry blossom petals and washes them away.
The image is a fleeting scene of the end of the cherry blossom season.
This is off-topic, but in reality, cherry blossoms are expected to bloom this week in Tokyo.
I feel like I was saying it was cold until recently, but the reality is that I want to believe that flowering is just around the corner, but I don't want to believe it.
I wish time would pass a little more slowly.
Returning to the topic, the most distinctive feature of Sakuraame Knit is its uneven texture.
This uneven area represents the scene of cherry blossom petals falling in the rain.
Furthermore, by arranging the unevenness diagonally, it seems that the rain is flowing rather than just scattering.
Please understand that "flowing" is not mentioned in the item description and is just my image.
The unevenness can be seen not only in scattered or flowing cherry blossom petals, but also in the drizzling rain.
This is also a matter of imagination, but when I imagine that it represents three things: falling cherry blossom petals, flowing water, and drizzling rain, I feel that this is a piece with a deeper sense of belonging. I'll come.
I think that YASHIKI's items have an indescribable melancholy about them because they can be imagined in this way.
Of course it is important to have a good design on the surface, but I am drawn to brands and items that allow me to feel the background behind them.
I became a mysterious storyteller.
I changed my mind and used a stable plating knitting technique that uses yarns of different colors on the front and back sides.
There are also threads on the uneven parts, so the unevenness is accentuated.
Since the unevenness is not large, I think the slight emphasis on the color of the thread is a nice touch.
The fabric is thin 100% cotton, so I think it can be worn even in slightly warmer temperatures.
I guess it's somewhere between a long T-shirt and a knit.
Depending on the inner and outer layer, you can wear it even in chilly weather, so it's sure to become a useful item.
The loose silhouette makes it easy to layer with shirts, etc.
There are three colors: Ivory, Citron-yellow, and Pale-blue.
All the colors are spring-like and very nice.
Am I the only one who wants to pair it with SAYATOMO's 2-Tack Denim Pants ?
There's no way it wouldn't fit, right?
I need to be more adventurous.
I feel like Sakuraame Knit will make my dreams, which tend to be fleeting and scattered, come true.
I just pray that the future will not be fleeting.
Before the cherry blossoms start blooming and fade away like my dreams, try the Sakuraame Knit, which will let you feel the ephemerality of the end of the cherry blossom season.
