Good evening. This is Ikeda.
I previously wrote that the exhibition schedule has calmed down to a certain extent, but due to new invitations, I have been closed for about two months, mostly due to exhibitions.
Two months without any rest is fun, but it can also be exhausting.
It looks like the exhibition festival will settle down this week.
Even though I don't have any days off, it's really fun to talk to brands that have a strong core at their exhibitions.
We would love to hear from you, not only about the brands we already carry, but especially about the brands we are inviting you to join.
There are various things such as the history of the brand, its concept, how it is incorporated into the collection and design, the selection criteria for handling, etc.
Of course, the ones that are most attracted to brands are those that have a strong core.
It's fun to see such brands, but it also makes me feel good.
I would like to make a mysterious declaration that I am determined to make this a place that reflects my individuality without losing focus.
Today, which started with a mysterious declaration, we would like to introduce Fujimoto's Wound Coat "Lives" and Wound Jacket "Lives", which have been available since this season.
Of course, it has a solid core, and it is also a very attractive brand for clothing.
It might be a little long, but from this entire season of Fujimoto.
This season's theme is "Varsika".
"Varsika" is an ancient Indian Sanskrit word that means "anchor".
In ``Ango'', Buddhist monks stay in one place during the rainy season and lead a group of ascetic practices, forbidding them to go out.
Of course, I didn't know that word or its meaning.
The reason why "Varsika" is the theme is because the background of the collection is the life and works of essayist and novelist Ango Sakaguchi.
There are various theories, but it is said that the pen name Ango Sakaguchi was derived from ``Ango'' because he was devoted to ancient Indian philosophy.
Please note that I am not an expert or anything, so I may be wrong.
One of Ango Sakaguchi's most famous works is a work called ``Depravity'', and the motifs and graphics of MAN LIVES, MAN FALLS are created based on the slogan ``Live, Fall''.
Finally, let's talk about items, which is why "Lives" is included in the item name.
By the way, I bought a copy of Depravity Theory online right after I heard him speak at the exhibition, and it's very interesting, so if you're interested, please give it a read.
You can also rent it directly.
In fact, I also wrote a book review for ``Horigoto November 4th'' .
It's a little long, but Wound Coat and Wound Jacket are from the "Ikiyo" side of "Ikiyo, Fallen" and the "Lives" side.
A trench coat and a short jacket are made of the same fabric.
The Wound Coat is quite long and has a very versatile finish with just one piece.
On the other hand, the Wound Jacket has a neat short length, making it easier to wear.
A distinctive feature of both items is the pocket design.
It is sewn in a grid pattern using threads of similar colors.
Because it is grouped in similar colors, it is not a strong statement or simple, but it is a very nice seasoning.
The Wound Coat has a button on the back yoke that allows it to be opened and closed.
You can open it up to show it as an inner layer to add an accent, or you can keep it closed and wear it simply.
Am I the only one who can't help but reach for this kind of playfulness?
I would be happy if you could share my thoughts.
The fabric used is a blend of cotton and silk.
It may be difficult to convey in the image, but the fabric has a slightly nappy feel.
Although it has a nappy feel to it, the silk-blend fabric makes it feel less old-fashioned and gives it a somewhat classy look.
This applies not only to the Wound Coat and Wound Jacket, but to all Fujimoto items, and the fabrics used are basically natural materials.
You may tend to pay attention to the design and graphics, but the brand's commitment to using only natural materials is also consistent.
That's why I'm attracted to it.
Sizes are free size only.
Both have a loose fit and sleeves are slightly longer.
It doesn't have an extremely loose silhouette, so it should fit most people.
By the way, I'm 175cm, so the images are for reference only.
As for the color, only “Lives” Off White is available.
“Falls” Black was also available, but I particularly liked the texture of “Lives”, so I only selected Off White.
I hope you can wear it without worrying about it getting dirty.
Like Fujimoto and other brands that we carry, we have to tighten ourselves up, both personally and as a company.
Fujimoto has a consistent axis, and we highly recommend the Wound Coat and Wound Jacket.
