LOST IN TRADITION, FOUND IN TRANSLATION
For Spring/Summer 2016 KOMONO explored the duality and juxtaposition of Tokyo and applied it to the collection.
Future style, design, culture and aesthetics, deeply rooted in the past. Tall and wide with endless swaths of glass, concrete and steel giving way to quiet and serenity, this city – simultaneously intimidating and inviting.
This season, we’re set to Tokyo time.
Linear collides with curves and chaos gives way to calm here. The canyons of glass, steel and concrete hide coves of quiet and calm. There is so much complexity to this place and yet it’s so simple. It’s so capable. Every square foot is designed for efficiency and effectiveness.
How can a place exist as a testament to tradition and progression simultaneously? And yet… Tokyo does. It is five hundred years of the past projected onto the city of the future.
This season, KOMONO is viewing things through the lens of Tokyo. The perpetual buzz and flurry of progression, tradition, simplicity and complexity. The architecture, style and culture that have come as a result. This is their language. This harmonious enigma.
