“Eventually, each and every garment will be unique and different."
This is our vision towards the future of mankind.

By designing costumes, I found that a garment specifically designed and made for an individual has the power to enrich and liberate the wearer from the heart. In time, I developed a desire to provide that experience to people all over the world.

A change in the fundamental concept of clothing was necessary to achieve this dream. I hypothesized that providing one-of- a-kind garment to each individual can be possible if clothes can feely change their shape in an instant like clay.

In the first collection, I presented the idea of clothes made by connecting small film parts. The second collection featured the UNIT CONSTRUCTED TEXTILE, a system that can reassemble unit parts many times. After countless trials and errors, we are closer to realizing our dream, as we have succeeded in significantly evolving the 3D UNIT CONSTRUCTED TEXTILE.

A major challenge of mass customization was the constraint of using needles and threads to make the clothing. Using digital fabrication, we made a system that allowed various materials used for clothing like cotton, wool, and nylon to be combined freely. This system lets us build all silhouettes imaginable, just like creating a garment from a dress pattern but with even more flexibility. No two human bodies are shaped exactly the same. 3D UNIT CONSTRUCTED TEXTILE can adjust the size and shape of a garment to be a precise fit to the wearer’s figure, unlike the standard method of making clothes from a sewing pattern. Each UNIT has a serial number –as if it was the DNA of the wearer. Anything and everything, from traditional crafts and contemporary art, to wearable devices, and even items with no classification but of value to the wearer, can be developed into a UNIT and be worn in one outfit. This simple system of combing two types of UNITS will change how people enjoy their new clothes and enrich their lifestyles.

I merged the concept of this new and evolutionary textile with clothing from the past. As a motif, I chose the 1950s, an era symbolized by two completely opposite styles: the Haute Couture that brought back elegance and luxury to people fatigued by the war, and jeans, the globally mass-produced piece of clothing.

Jeans, the first truly universal attire, are now worn by just about anyone in the world, regardless of sex, age, or social class. Our ambition is to take the non-discriminatory and universal aspect of jeans one step further and create a one-of- a-kind garment that is made solely for the wearer.





そして挑戦は始まりました。最初のコレクションでは、パーツとパーツを組み合わせるだけで衣服を作るという発想にたどりつきました。2回目のコレクションでは、UNIT CONSTRUCTED TEXTILEという何度でもパーツ同士を組み替えられるシステムを開発しました。それから半年、試行錯誤の末に、我々は大きな進化を遂げました。 


人間の身体は2つとして同じ形は存在しません。UNIT CONSTRUCTED TEXTILEは、これまでの縫製や型紙といった従来の作り方よりも、身体に沿うようにサイズや形状を調整することができ、そして着る人のDNAのように一つ一つにシリアルナンバーが施されます。
