FUJIMOTO by Kyohei Fujimoto unveils his debut collection for Fall-Winter 2022.
Fujimoto graduated from Bunka Fashion College, Fashion Distribution Department, Stylist Course, and worked as a sales representative for select stores and imported brands before engaging in planning and sales for a Japanese brand.
His first collection is named “Farewell,” inspired by Kenji Miyazawa’s poem of the same name.
This collection is inspired by the image of Kenji Miyazawa, who loved nature and spent his final days in a farming village, natural materials were mainly used for the fabrics. The knitwear is made of raw wool that is not dyed and has the color and expression of the original material, and the butterflies that appear in many of his works are expressed through knit wheat embroidery and rope knitting.
Another inspiration came from the punk band “CRASS,” . While they left a strong message as a punk band, all the members lived a self-sufficient life in a house deep in the mountains. Regardless of ideological or racial differences, they lived together with anyone who visited their house. Patches printed with their messages and hand-stitched with twine, for example, are motifs from punk.
