“A new and super creative generation of Fashion Samurai is emerging in Japan and internationally ~ bravely setting out to redefine men’s Kimono styles ~ keeping tradition alive while infusing it with new life. Their unique ensembles make a lasting impression at weddings, Kabuki, theater, hip restaurants, or just hanging out!

For this ground-breaking exhibition, ten international designers and stylists from Japan, Europe, and the United States contribute their innovative designs. Urban, elegant, or practical, they are all refreshingly modern and avant-garde coordinations ~ showcasing the new wave of male Wafuku ~ off the beaten track, risky, whimsical, yet so worldly and sophisticated.”
