Franzi Mueller for Vogue Germany February 2013 by Sebastian Kim_2

The geisha-inspired theme captured in the lens of Sebastian Kim reveals western fashion tribute to the richness of the Country of the Rising Sun. The marvelous unveiling of Japan-focused culture is one of the main inspirations presented on the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalks including fashion giants like Alexander McQueen, Prada, Haider Ackermann and Mugler.  To be truth, despite that the Asian theme is a repeated trend, I feel always amazed with the results that one country like Japan can offer with the plenteous culture and visualization of art.  My Japanese inclinations that are clearly visibly on the pages of EdelScope.com are probably rooted in my silent dreaming of visiting the land of Issey Miyake, Junya Wutanabe and Yohji Yamamoto.

ORISHIKI Clutch bag by Naoki Kawamoto

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.”
