Fashion designer Takuya Morikawa unveiled TAAKK Fall Winter 2021.22 Collection that explores dreams and reality and their intersection as well as contradictions. The collection was also influenced by the work of photographer Saul Leiter and the abstracted nostalgia it brings.
Photographer Ko Tsuchiya captured the lookbook featuring model Keijyu Furuya. In charge of styling was Shohei Kashima, with hair styling and makeup from beauty artist Jun Nakamura. Short fashion film was directed by film maker Nagisa Kodama.
“Since TAAKK’s founding, Morikawa has continued to reshape the possibilities of menswear design with a multidisciplinary approach – incorporating extensive material research and imaginative fabric treatments into his creations and collaborating with expert technicians to bring these ideas to existence.
Subverting expectations of the possible, this season a herringbone wool jacket effortlessly transitions into tuckable cotton shirting, a wool tailored jacket fades into a nylon MA-1 bomber, polyester twill dissolves into sheer organdy to expose layers underneath. TAAKK continues to push the limits of the feasible, turning unrealities into actualities, further blurring the distinction between dreams and reality.
Hazy and indefinite graphics are dotted throughout the collection, informed by the designer’s own dreams, evoking the ambiguity and fleeting beauty of the world through a lens that only dreams can produce.” – from TAAKK
