Tsumori Chisato Autumn Winther 2005 campaign

In random order I have chosen photos and graphic illustrations to show you from Tsumori Chisato´s website. Her collections have a timeless storytelling appeal to them which is what I wish to show.

Tsumori Chisato studied fashion at the prestigious Bunka Fashion School in Tokyo. She has worked for Issey Miyake and in 1990 she started her own brand. The first time I held a piece og her garment in my hands I was in love, so carefully detailed and feminine and you really feel that the garment is cared for from idea to final wearable piece.

Tsumori Chisato opened her first store outside Asia in 1999 in Paris. Situated in the heart of the Marais neighbourhood, the boutique showcases Tsumori Chisato’s love for the arts through collaborations with photographers, visual artists and set designers exhibited in the storefront. Her artistic sensibility is also translated throught the brand’s inventive advertising campaigns.

Her innovative and luxurious textiles, intricate beading, embroidery, appliqués and prints of her own design are her signiture style. Graceful, elegant and fun at the same time. Her clothes are slaso available at one of my favourite shops and webshop Lubarol in Copenhagen.
