Yoshikimono, the kimono fashion brand created by Japanese rock star YOSHIKI, has been chosen for the opening spot at Rakuten Fashion Week Tokyo 2020 Spring/Summer, to be held on Monday 14 October 2019.
YOSHIKI presented Yoshikimono’s 2016 collection to close Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Tokyo, and his 2017 collection was invited to open Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo. The latest Yoshikimono collection is the first presentation in 3 years from the brand which has gained international attention for its avant-garde designs and modern cultural impact.
“As the eldest son of kimono shop owners, kimono had been an integral part of my life since childhood,” said YOSHIKI. “Since I began living abroad, I’ve seen the importance and beauty of Japan’s traditional culture. This led to my strong desire to share this beauty with as many people around the world as possible. This is the first collection in three years. I’m so excited to share this with everyone.”
YOSHIKI shared a video with the announcement of the upcoming Spring and Summer collection of Yoshikimono. In the video, you can see the former presentations by the leader of rock group X JAPAN, where he played the piano and drums, while models walk the runway. It is expected that Yoshiki will make a more impressive production next month. The new collection will be presented from 13.30 on the 9th floor of Shibuya Hikarie, Hall A.
