Brand Profile

AKIKOAOKIではファッションにおける "装い" という行為を洋服を纏うひとの生き方や姿勢を表現しながら、社会や時代とのコミュニケーションをとる1つの文化的なツールとして捉えています。時代の流れと呼応しながら、ブランド独自の価値観と視点からつくり出されるデザインは、常に次世代の新しい人間像を感じることのできるオリジナリティーを持っています。女性ならではの身体性からインスピレーションを得た構築的なシルエットと、その真逆な脱構築的な造形の共存を得意とし、ユニークで大胆なカッティングが特徴です。

AKIKOAOKI views the act of "dressing" in fashion as a cultural tool to communicate with society and the times, while expressing the way of life and attitude of the person wearing the clothes. The designs created from the brand's unique values and perspectives, while responding to the trends of the times, always have an originality that allows us to feel a new image of the next generation of human beings. The brand specializes in the coexistence of structured silhouettes inspired by women's unique physicality and deconstructed shapes that are the complete opposite of such silhouettes, characterized by unique and bold cuts.
