NEW 2017 COLLECTION

Designing the shadow.

Posted on

Japanese traditional washi paper accessory and bag. Studying design.
Use the shadow and it's rhythm as the part of design.
Trough the washi paper project, one important element of design came to my mind.This project reminded me the importance of the shadow.
W hen I was an Architecture student, shadow was one of the important elements of spatial design,like the position of window, the sunlight, and how the window create shadow into the interior space ,etc.We do care about it even when we look for our new apartment.
I just realized that is also an interesting element of design for fashion.
This washi paper can create much stronger shadow than usual fabrics.While working on sample design of clutches, we realized that it can show more interesting impact of design when it has more complicated shadow and rhythm.
So we tested various types of designs to create more interesting shadow.
I'll explain more about its final design soon!
T he product will be finally released on March 31st at Tokyu Plaza Ginza.
作を繰り返すうち、和紙が生み出す影の面白さに気がつきました。同時に建築を学んでいた頃、光と影はデザイン要素の重要な部分だったことを思い出しました。ファッションデザインにおいても、影はデザインの印象を変える重要な要素だったのです。
ハリがあり、厚みのあるSIWAの和紙は普通の布よりクリアな陰影を生み出す事ができます。
色々な形で紙を使う事により、影も形を変えます。
その独特な陰影で更に素材の面白さを引き立てられるよう、試行錯誤を繰り返しました。
もなくオープンの銀座東急プラザにて、コラボ品の発売開始となります。お楽しみに!
