Piers Atkinson -Artist, illustrator, milliner, costume designer, party organiser, fashion editor, project manager in one. Certainly such a creative persona gives full rein to his imagination and creativity in his stunning andimaginative headpiece designs.
I wrote about this fascinating persona also on Fashionising .
Origami art in synergy with fashion aeshetics called “Orishiki” by Naoki Kawamoto remains simply amazing efects in the aspects of accessories. It is an absorbing yet inspiring game with geometric shapes, dimensions and unique identity.
As the designer Naoki Kawamoto explains:
“Orishiki” is a hybrid word composed of “Ori ”, taken from Origami, Japanese paper-folding art, and “Shiki ” taken f rom Furoshiki, Japanese traditional wrapping cloth which is large enough to wrap and transport goods and gifts, as well as wearing them as scarves. “ORISHIKI” is a new carrying device consisting of a single piece of two dimensional structure, constructed of triangular segments which can be folded like origami, and can wrap things like furoshiki. The geometric bag is not only idiosyncratic in its appearance but also in its highly speacialized production process. The unique process can be applied to just about any productions without losing its unique product identity.
The Orishiki is not same as any another luggage system geometric and lovely shape.
The material and system are also quite unique which is way combined folding and swallowing up volume inside.
There is big possibility of many way to use the system on many different type of luggage in the future.”
