Yoshikimono, the kimono brand engineered by Yoshiki, the famous composer, drummer, classical pianist, and leader of X Japan, has been announced as the opening attraction for “Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo 2017 S/S”, with Yoshiki giving a special musical performance on Monday, October 17th.
The Yoshikimono line was conceived by Yoshiki, the first-born son of kimono shop owners, as a way to create a fusion of classic Japanese tradition and modern taste.
The Yoshikimono collection had its full-scale debut at “Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week TOKYO 2016 S/S”, along with a brilliant finale performance by Yoshiki to close the event. The innovative performance, combined with Yoshiki’s imaginative kimono line, received an overwhelming amount of international media coverage and became a huge conversation piece all around the world.
Now, a year after the debut of his vivid collection, expect Yoshiki to upset the norm yet again with his visionary take on the contrast of “stillness” and “motion” and its effect on fashion.
