MMVIII 2012 S/S Collection Delivery 1 will be available at our Online Shop on May 24th, 2012.
This is the first MMVIII cut-and-sew piece; taking the form of a well-known Japanese pattern called Karakusa. Use of the Karakusa patterned cloths to wrap and carry ones belongings became popular in the Nara period. The never-ending tangling vines are considered a symbol of survival and endurance. The inspiration for this shirt also came from my second home, Hawaii; a place with a thriving Japanese culture.
We’re young and we get twisted. There are many symbolic images on it, including the flag of Tokyo and British Columbia, Japanese Katana swords, and “country of Japan” in Japanese Kanji writing. The Katana swords were worn by the military nobility samurai.
